Why Customers Care
Research Firm NBRI Gets to the Bottom of Why Customers Care. When Companies Roll Out the Customer Loyalty Survey, Profits Roll In
There may be no greater sign of customer loyalty than hundreds of consumers risking a parking ticket for a large yogurt. It’s likely Hyekyung Hwang, owner of a Los Angeles-based frozen yogurt stand called Pinkberry, did her customer loyalty marketing research before taking her first order. The unassuming shop has a cult following and has become a media darling, simply by offering a low-calorie treat. According to a recent Los Angeles Times story, lines last 20 minutes, patrons scoff at potential parking fines, and neighbors complain about congestion – all to get a taste of the secret Pinkberry recipe.
The Pinkberry story is a prime example of a company that establishes a strong customer loyalty base and does whatever it can to maintain it. Hwang realizes her customers may eventually tire of the lines, parking restrictions, and the long drive, so she’s taken the Pinkberry profits and is opening stores in four other locations throughout Los Angeles.
Whether a company sells yogurt or yoga classes, customer loyalty marketing research is an absolute necessity because two-thirds of business is generated by repeat customers. Businesses who want to keep in tune with their base have called on the National Business Research Institute, a customer loyalty survey research firm that helps clients diagnose consumer trends.
“Customer loyalty first starts by knowing exactly what the customer wants,” said Dr. Jan West, a Ph.D. and Founder of NBRI. “Customer loyalty survey research companies like NBRI can take survey data and mold it into a comprehensive plan for its clients. In today’s competitive environment, a company has to find ways to surpass customer expectations in order to maintain customer loyalty.”
Dr. West’s Texas-based company has more than 3 decades of experience conducting customer loyalty marketing surveys for multi-million dollar companies. NBRI uses the latest scientific and psychological research in its surveying methods, and has a clientele that includes some of the most respected Fortune 500 companies in the world. These companies demand first-rate results, and NBRI turns out customer loyalty survey results that uncover details about customer service, communication, and product awareness that, when addressed, positively impact financial results.
The typical NBRI customer loyalty survey includes 25 questions covering 12 topics. Naturally, the questions are customized to meet a company’s specific needs.
“Every client has individual needs, and that’s what NBRI provides with its customer loyalty survey results,” said West. “In the time it takes to read this, a company may lose a customer or client and not even be aware of the reasons why. Customer loyalty isn’t built in an instant, it’s built over time. NBRI recognizes that, and gives clients the tools they need to win the customer loyalty competition.”
