Shopify stores must start creating customer loyalty at scale

Jun 17, 2019 Samuel Kellett 3 min read

When I say Shopify stores must start creating customer loyalty at scale, I’m talking about the direction e-commerce is moving in general: growth through customer loyalty. Not through acquisition; not even through retention. Through fostering customer loyalty.

Retailers who don’t move to more advanced technical solutions to capture the momentum of the industry risk falling behind.

  1. To catch (or lead) the e-commerce industry, retailers need to foster loyalty across their customer base.
  2. The best way to accomplish this is through personalization at scale (offers and recommendations for every user based on their interests).
  3. To make personalization at scale possible, the data needs to be organized around the customer, reporting back to a central hub for all customer data, rather than organized around the channel or device, as most companies are currently set up.

Particularly for mid-level or enterprise companies, there’s a need for technology that effectively organizes customer data, enables an omni-channel experience, and personalizes the site and communications for every user. If your company has annual revenues over $10M, and/or an employee count rising past 50, it’s time for the next level of marketing tech.
