RETAIL LOYALTY STUDY – GSA: THE LATEST TRENDS IN CUSTOMER LOYALTY
Incl. update: Loyalty in times of Corona
Loyalty is one of the trend topics in marketing, especially in conjunction with a changing shopping behavior. As a result, many companies are asking themselves how consumers use loyalty programs and how they would like such programs to be designed. What role do features such as gamification, self-scanning, social media embedding and integrated payment options play? And does a program today also need to support social responsibility trends such as climate neutrality and sharing approaches? A representative consumer survey with 5,000 respondents in Germany, Austria and Switzerland provides the most important answers.
