International Customer Loyalty Month - It’s time to activate your consumer-centric vision because April is International Customer Loyalty Month.

International Customer Loyalty Month 2024 – April 2024

International Customer Loyalty Month, which takes place in April, was created to cultivate a customer-centric culture among companies. It’s the ideal time to make companies and employees aware of the importance of developing a loyal customer base. Think about it: nobody is more important to a business than the consumer, right? Without the consumer, it doesn’t matter if you have a winning product that solves all the world’s problems: your business will not thrive. This was a factor that the sales world had to embrace to understand that customer loyalty is its main asset.

History of International Customer Loyalty Month

Loyalty has always been the tip of the balance in any business transaction. A combination of an unfair seller, an unfair product, and an unfair review, is like poison for the trading world. Commerce is based on trust, and it is trust that builds loyalty. Consumer loyalty has been a positive asset for every business since the dawn of capitalism.The first attempts to win customer loyalty occurred at the end of the 18th century, with marketing strategies that created the ‘premium’ category among repeat customers. At the time, the most successful way to get customers back among American sellers was to distribute tokens that awarded services and discounts to those who obtained them. Later, these tokens were replaced by loyalty programs that became increasingly robust and caused an impact on business growth. But it was the development of computing and business strategies based on data and numbers that shifted the balance to consumer loyalty.It was mainly from the 1980s that companies began to cultivate a consumer-centric culture among their employees. Even though customer confidence should be encouraged throughout the year, the move started small and created the National Customer Service Week. The first event took place in the first week of October. It was an initiative of the International Customer Service Association, and in 1992, it gained nationwide attention when President George Bush officially recognized its importance to the prosperity of the economy.Finally, in 2007 consumer loyalty encompassed the entire month of April to be recognized to help entrepreneurs learn about and apply techniques and strategies that improve their services.
