37% of people consider themselves to be loyal to a brand only after they have shopped from it for more than five times.
This piece recommends brands should have an active omnichannel presence across different mediums along with a fully functional customer support service. An omnichannel presence would encourage more customer interaction and enable brands to turn “valued customers into life-long loyalists.”
