To make things clear, I'm not going to talk about marriage disloyal disloyalcy. The issue to be dealt with today, very worrying from a branding perspective, is disloyality towards brands.
A few days ago I was able to read a preview of the new Nielsen's Global Consumer Loyalty in the Nielsen Europe's Press Room. I translate the data that I found most significant, and then I'll relate that data to those we trust Edelman. The goal is to better understand that disloyality is a problem for many companies and an opportunity for others, and also see if personal employee-to-consumer recommendations could change this trend.
If you don't have much time, I'll explain it to you in a minute in this video:
Disloyalta on the rise: A 92% consumers are unfair to their brands
In other words, only the 8% people consider themselves loyal to their brands Favorite, according to Nielsen's referenced study. The data is global, in Europe and America the numbers are less dramatic, But…
Don't you think it's crazy.? As an ex-advertiser, I keep thinking about how badly advertisers and agencies are going to be happening now.. Achieving brand loyalty was the ALL in advertising, the ultimate goal.
We like to try new things a principle of disloyaltad?
The report notes that a 42% consumers all over the world say they love trying new things and almost half (49%) consumers - although they prefer to stick to what they know- can be moved to experience.
The question here is whether it is a disloyal problem. I rather see an oversupply. And a ease of purchasing goods and services not seen to date. Joe Ellis, Senior Vice President of Nielsen Consumer Insights, He calls it "the Amazon effect". We can make online purchases and receive an order at 2 hours at home. Trying new things is easier than ever.
And perhaps the most well-founded fear: The indifference makes very few brands (Coke, Nike, Apple) keep more consumers. Eye to the data: only the 28% consumers are influenced by the fact that a brand is known, recognized and trustworthy.
Will disloyal and distrust be related?
I wonder.. Relate two studies with bases and methodologies as distant as that of Nielsen and the Edelman Trust 2019 may be perverse on my part. But there is no doubt that we are more loyal to the brands we trust.
Perhaps one of the problems is that advertising outbound, disruption, the one we hate, takes us away from the marks, doesn't bring us closer as two decades ago. Advertisers and agencies are seeking new formulas inbound, with attractive content that doesn't interrupt but come virally to us, recommended by our peers.
The companies find it difficult to quit repetitive advertising and put their people in charge of providing trusted brands
The Edelman Trust Study 2019, I dealt a few months ago with the article "Shy recovery of trust"shows a little more optimism than Nielsen's. Being confidence in soils in countries like Spain, For example, positively we see that technical experts and company employees are trusted drivers Natural.
The companies find it difficult to quit repetitive advertising and put their people in charge of providing trusted brands. I tried the subject on "Hello company: Did you know that your people are your brand?"The article was very successful in RR areas. Hh, but rather scarce in marketing and communication managers. fear...
Brave professionals are wanted
I understand you., Marcom. You've hired a good agency. You have a reasonable budget... why risk experiments with a slower ROI, that don't just depend on your department? Let's recognize it, that's getting in trouble. That's why I'm proposing you take the reins of this and raise a pilot, what can go wrong?
Precisely the programs Employee Advocacy they're for this, so that you value your influencers of the house, to bet on the quarry rather than hire famosillos that will leave you any day to go to a competitor's brand.
If disloyality becomes the norm, bets on the only ones capable of restoring confidence to their place, and they work a few feet from your table: your co-workers.
