Building Brand Loyalty Through Call Centers

September 03, 2014

In the world of online marketplaces and big discounts, retaining customers is one of the biggest challenges faced by many companies. To address this problem, companies are coming up with different strategies to retain customers, with one of them being brand building. Brand loyalty is the power of a particular brand to retain customers for long periods of time. For example, some customers may prefer to buy a particular brand of a product because they like its features while others may shop at a particular store because of the good customer service they received. These customers are loyal to the brands and will not hesitate to pay a little bit more to get what they want. Finding such customers is not easy though and requires extensive effort from companies.

One strategy used by companies is to provide exceptional customer service, so a customer keeps coming back to the same company for future purchases. In this sense, there is a direct correlation between maintaining a deep customer relationship and brand loyalty. This is why most companies are working with efficient call centers that would provide their customers with timely help when needed, and also answer their questions and concerns in a courteous way.

Along with providing good customer service, it is also important to get feedback from the customers to get a precise idea of brand loyalty. Companies tend to use call centers and social media to get this insight. They analyze call recordings, run intelligent analysis and even get direct feedback from customers after they are finished with a call. Based on this feedback, companies can make necessary changes to their products or customer service to improve brand loyalty among customers.

In short, call centers help companies to build brand loyalty by providing high quality customer service and also, by collecting feedback for improvement.

Customer Experience: The Last True Differentiator

In Ernst & Young's Global Consumer Banking Survey 2014, customers chose "the way I am treated" as the second most important reason for trusting their banking provider, just behind the understandably important "financial stability" of their bank.
