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.

  • Thinking like a journalist will make you awesome at native advertising

    “One of the things about journalism that relates so closely to native advertising is the desire to put your readers first. If you put your readers’ interests and what they care about at the centre, the content that you create is going to resonate with them much more fully and really have a much bigger impact. Brand storytellers should definitely take that lesson from the world of journalism and make sure their readers are at the centre of everything they create,” says Melanie Deziel, branded content consultant.
