What makes customers loyal to one company over another, or to one brand over another? How can you create Âtop of mind awarenessÂ for your business or product and outsell your competition? Because April is ÂInternational Customer Loyalty Month,Â now is a perfect time to plan a strategy for improving relationships with your customers through better service, higher quality, and any other steps you can take to ensure brand and customer loyalty.
Strategic marketing consultant Dennis Flynn helps business leaders identify the branding challenges of tomorrow and shows them how to stay in the game. As Flynn explains, ÂAs we move solidly into the 21st century, we know that constant and/or monumental change, diminishing time, and information overload will be key issues that companies must address to succeed.Â In his book, Brand Clout: Maintaining Relevance and Profitability Amidst Constant Change (Cameo Publications, $17.95, ISBN 0-9744149-5-6), Flynn offers Âthe ten rules of continuous relevance,Â which will help business leaders make the necessary changes to move their brands to the top of the pile and gain customer loyalty.
To gain that customer and brand loyalty that will raise you above the competition, you need to Âthink outside the brand.Â You can do this by focusing on customersÂ needs and then delivering what they want. Flynn has helped many major companies become leaders in their industry by utilizing the SonarÂ© Model, a template for strategic thinking. It enables companies to 1) evaluate and reconfigure assets for more powerful business outcomes, 2) develop new perspectives on existing and upcoming alliance opportunities, 3) create increased leverage of brand options for competitive advantage; 4) create a process for evaluating and identifying technologies that are and will be critical in achieving competitive advantage.
So during April and throughout the rest of the year, plan your strategy of how you can improve your customer and brand loyalty and take the steps to make your business or product stand out from the competition. Then watch as your bottom line skyrockets.
