Customer engagement, though only a piece of the marketing puzzle, shouldn’t be ignored. Why? Engaged customers spend more money, actively support branding initiatives, and spread the reach of your company.
By definition, customer engagement is the continued relationship between a brand and its customers. Much like a romantic relationship, customer engagement requires consistent communication, nurturing, and attention. Here’s what modern marketer’s think of customer engagement:
- 63% of marketers agree customer engagement includes renewals, repeat purchases, and retention.
- More than three-quarters of marketers say engagement occurs in the middle or end stage of the marketing funnel.
- Engagement is driven by price (81%), quality (80%)and convenience (55%), loyalty is about likability (86%) and trust (83%).
No matter the size of your company, the industry you work in, or the products you sell—customer engagement is vital to the success of your business. That’s why we put together the following infographic. Use it to create and inform your new customer engagement strategy.
