Retailers are failing to drive devotion amongst UAE shoppers
Global loyalty marketing agency, ICLP reveals research which states that whilst Club Apparel, which comprises of over 70 international brands, is considered to be performing the most strongly in the eyes of UAE shoppers when it comes to rewarding customer loyalty, retailers in general are failing to drive devotion amongst consumers. Just 29% of UAE consumers feel that their custom and loyalty is being rewarded by their favoured retailer, while 36% said that they felt appreciated if they were a regular customer. ICLP surveyed UAE consumers to understand how far their expectations were being met by a named retail brand that they shop with frequently and are loyal to, and revealed that brands still have a significant journey to make in order to build a strong relationship with their customers. Working with Professor Rogge of the University of Rochester, ICLP applied Sternberg’s Triangular Theory of Love to the relationship between shoppers and brands, and defined the ideal, or ‘devoted’ relationship, as one where shoppers feel passion, intimacy, and commitment to the brand.
