To have dedicated followers you must build stronger emotional ties. This is achieved by providing relevant, useful information in an entertaining way that builds conversations with your customers to makes them feel involved with, and ultimately closer to, the brand.
Research shows that readers of customer magazines are increasingly loyal to the brand – they buy more, more often and are less likely to churn. This is because customer magazines, and editorial content in any channel, encapsulates the personality of a brand and engages consumers for far longer than any advertising campaign or loyalty scheme.
So, if a brand truly wants to build loyalty, marketers must provide customers with real benefits – value-driven entertaining content where and when they want it.
