Will you be there for your brand?

As remarkable as it sounds, our latest research shows that brands now need to nurture customers for at least two years before securing commitment. Over that time, the first year is devoted to building trust; the second, to strengthening the relationship. After that, brands reach what we call the “relationship tipping point,” when trust matures into a strong relationship and customers first show commitment to a brand.

And the story doesn’t stop there . . . We also found that the biggest incremental change in customer spend happens even further down the road – at the 5+ years stage. Similar to the relationship tipping point, this “revenue tipping point” occurs when the revenue value of a customer increases dramatically relative to a brand’s investment in that customer. I’m talking about the intersection of brand trust, relationship and spend – and it takes at least half a decade to get there.

In today’s business environment, that much time can be an eternity. But there are steps you can take to accelerate customer progression to the tipping point.

More specifically, our research shows that in order to move buyers along the customer journey, marketers need to focus their attention on three key elements. You need to:

  1. Build customer trust and commitment. Start by understanding the critical factors that drive customer commitment and how to best fulfill emotional needs for your customers. Successfully promoting your brand identity is a complex process that includes company ethics, transparency and the ability to efficiently and effectively deliver your brand promise.
  2. Meet functional needs to improve the customer experience. The customer experience you deliver must reflect the brand promise you establish in Step 1 – and it must be relevant ongoing, consistent, meaningful and mutually-rewarding. To accomplish all that, you’ll need to develop an integrated omni-channel experience, and you’ll need to use customer data deliberately, so you can deliver messages that are reliable, considerate and relevant. Once you do, you’ll start building the kind of credibility that matures into brand loyalty.
  3. Enable customer momentum by delivering a frictionless customer journey. The omni-channel experience you offer must include a variety of on- and off-line channels so customers can start, stop, rejoin and jump engagement levels, carving out their own highly individualized paths to purchase – and then ideally, continuing on to help build a community around your brand.

We’ve found that when brands routinely fulfill all three steps above, ROI improves significantly. Think of it as a three-way street: ROI comes at the intersection of journey, experience and commitment.  And the real payoff is an exceptional brand experience, as our data tells us that a committed customer spends 1.5 times more, on average, than a customer who is not engaged.

The most successful and preferred brands globally are those that fully understand these connections. They know that building trust is fundamental to securing a committed brand relationship.
