How to create loyalty to beat the inflation trap

As inflation threatens the global recovery and consumer confidence, retailers and FMCG companies alike are roughly split into winners and losers between those retaining their loyal customer bases and those that lose their footfall to the more price aggressive competition and the discounters.

«For all of the companies profiled in the report variations of the 80/20 rule applied, with a figure of between 15 and 40% of loyal customers accounting for between 60-80% of a company's sales and profits. In tough economic times it is all about keeping customers in store and stopping them to defect to the competition, or from a FMCG perspective keeping them shopping the brand rather than a private label alternative. It is very hard to make shoppers return to the status quo ante once they have become disloyal.»
