Customer Loyalty Infographic

By Mike Gorun on Mar 6, 2012

 

The National Business Research Institute has created a valuable infographic focused on customer loyalty. NBRI explains, “Customers are a business’ most important asset, without them the business wouldn’t exist. So it’s imperative to keep these customers happy and improve their loyalty to your business.” They add, “We created this customer loyalty infographic to help you not only understand it, but to help you cultivate that loyalty among your own customers.”

We found NPRI’s presentation of the importance of customer loyalty in today’s economic society not only helpful and insightful, but easy to digest with specific details that would apply in a variety of business settings.

When considering that the decision-making process is 30% logic and 70% emotion, how do you feel that affects your business?

  • Get Your Customers Properly Engaged with Your Dealership

    I know. It's a buzzword. It's impossible to keep track of number of times experts in the car business have used the word "engagement" when describing how to get more customers. Engage on social. Engage on search. Engage on YouTube. Engage on your website. It's a mess but it's still important to be engaged with potential customers. On the other hand, it's even more important to be engaged with your past and present customers. The people who just bought a car from you, the people in your service waiting lounge, even the people who bought a vehicle from you a couple of years ago - these are the people that could really use some engagement with you immediately. It gets frustrating to see so many dealers focused on driving new business and conquest business while pretty much taking their eyes off of the low hanging fruit in their database. It's as if the industry has given up on loyalty. It's true that loyalty numbers are lower than ever before. Between the internet allowing further re...Read post

  • Autotrader vs. Cars.com

    Currently we use both AutoTrader and Cars.com. We have used them both for quite some time. The measurement that we use for them is cost per vehicle detail page. We feel that it is a good measurement for them. In our opinion it is their responsibility to get the customer to our vehicle detail page. We feel that our marketing takes over at that point. (Good pictures, right car, right place, etc.) They are currently below .50 cents per vehicle detail page. We try to keep them under .60 cents per vehicle detail page. My question for the community is this. Do I need both? Based on our reporting both companies are performing well. AutoTrader seems to perform slightly better. They are also a lot easier to work with then cars.com. I just do not know if I would get the same customers with just one of them.      ...Read post

  • How Simply Getting the Job Done Can Be a Bad Thing

    Working at a car dealership often takes its toll on employees. The demands of a fifty, sixty or seventy hour work week often leaves the employee exhausted, mentally and physically. Generally, these employees are not clock-watchers, they are your commissioned sales people, your technicians, your management staff and they are the bread and butter for your dealership.  Are these long work hours the expectation that has been set by the organization, or it is part of the genetic makeup of these employees? Is their heart into it? Or are they only a cog that helps turn the wheel? Also imagine the full-time, forty-hour per week receptionist, service cashier or parts counter employee that repeats the responsibilities of their job for eight hours a day.  They take their breaks and probably sneak in a couple more to grab a cigarette or run an errand.  Their lunch hour is regimented so that everyone knows where to find them at half past twelve. They are critical employees to your franchise, ...Read post
