Chart of the week: Why do consumers break up with brands?

The customer is king and as such can be hard on any brand that doesn't fulfill his or her expectations to the fullest. According to a new report by SAP Hybris, customers worldwide have several reasons to turn their backs on brands.

The top no-go for brands is using data consumers confided in them without their knowledge or permission. Eighty per cent of respondents worldwide said this was the number one reason to divorce.

"Now that brands are able to collect data about consumers, how they use that data becomes critical," the report concludes. An unresponsive customer service is the second most acute reason customers terminate their relations with a brand (71 per cent).

There is other brand behaviour that might not lead to consumers shunning the brand altogether, but which still is seen as annoying. The top two spots have to do with a marketing and sales overkill: 60 and 50 per cent of consumers respectively are either bothered by too many direct marketing calls or too frequent sales emails.

    A few years ago at the Digital Innovators’ Summit, everyone was talking about free content and advertising, with the rising use of ad blockers in the forefront of everyone’s minds. This year, however, the strongest takeaway was that publishers are no longer in defence mode: with most now employing a paywall or subscription model, it’s been proven beyond doubt that people will pay for quality content. So now that publishers have a bit of breathing room, another question arises: what should they do to stand out from the crowd?
