Introduction
         In the UK, online retailers face an uncertain future. The fall                       If online merchants are to find a path to growth, they need to find

         Brand loyalty is in decline

         The challenge is that customers today are far less loyal than
         in the past. Choice is everywhere and it’s never been easier to
         switch brands. A study by Accenture highlights what this means
         in the starkest of terms: 83% of UK consumers are retracting
         loyalty at rates that are impacting profits. Over half of the
         consumers interviewed by Accenture had switched brands in
         the previous year.4

   The desirability of meeting these needs is clear: 86% of respondents to the study agreed that a positive post-purchase experience was fundamental to build their loyalty to a retailer or
   brand. For consumers older than 55 years’ old, this need rose to 90%. Achieving the right engagement from branded communications through to the respect of preferences is vital before
   real value, such as profits, can be realised. Let’s look at each pillar in turn.

The post-purchase hierarchy of needs – The essential ingredients for building brand loyalty                                                                                                    6
1. Communication
   According to the findings of our study, good communication is the foundation of customer      Figure 1: Receiving proactive post-purchase updates
   loyalty. As mentioned, brands and retailers focus heavily on the pre-sales experience in      is important, and grows more so with age
   marketing and engagement efforts, but often forget that the experience beyond the buy
   button should be seen as part of the purchase.
                                                                                                 Age 18-24                                  78%
   Retailers that communicate regularly on the progress of an order are much more likely to
   entice customers back rather than losing them to a competitor. In fact, 81% of participants
   in our study agreed that receiving proactive updates on the progress of an order, rather      Age 25-34                               70%
   than having to phone or email for updates, is critical in their decision to repeat purchase
   (see figure 1).

   For 80%, being proactively updated on delivery schedules, including information on            Age 25-44                                   80%
   delays, made them more likely to repeat purchase. Again, the importance of these updates
   increases slightly according to the age of the demographic. The feature is very important
   for people aged 55 to 75 (85%) and critical to those aged over 75 (93%).                      Age 45-54                                     81%

   This trend ties in with wider learnings about consumer requirements of brands. We
   know that 75% of UK consumers feel that the majority of retailers don’t understand their      Age 55-64                                       88%
   interests8 and this lack of relevance to consumer needs will damage their chances of
   winning loyalty. What our new study shows us is that the desire for timely, relevant and
   proactive communication is as important post-purchase as it is in winning the customer
                                                                                                 Age 65-74                                      85%

2. Choice
   The second pillar on our Hierarchy of Needs relates to that fundamental component            Figure 2: Convenience, choice and information around
   of successful retail experiences: choice. When it comes to the post-purchase process,        delivery are a key priority­—especially for women
   consumers want to be able to direct the experience to suit their needs. This isn’t a new
   finding: back in 2016, McKinsey found that nearly 25% of consumers were willing to pay
                                                                                                I am more likely to buy again online from a brand or retailer that
   a premium for the privilege of same-day or instant delivery.9
                                                                                                shows me my estimated delivery time before I pay for my item
   What our new study shows, however, is just how important choice over when and where
   a package will be delivered is when it comes to building brand loyalty. Indeed, 80% of the
   people we spoke to agreed that they were more likely to be loyal to brands and retailers

   As with Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, once the practical needs of a post-purchase               Figure 3: Shoppers want an emotional connection
   experience are met, emotional needs come to the fore. This is particularly true when it        with retailers and to share their values­—particularly
   comes to brand loyalty, as loyalty is to a large part driven by emotional factors. Research    if they’re young
   has found that 70% of emotionally engaged consumers spend up to two times or more
   on brands they are loyal to. This compares to less than half of consumers with low
   emotional engagement.17
                                                                                                  Age 18-24                                    61%

   So, while communication is an imperative foundation for the post-purchase experience,
   an emotional connection with a brand or retailer is also fundamental when it comes to          Age 25-34                                   59%
   consumers committing to loyalty. This begs the question: what can retailers do in the
   post-purchase phase of a sale to illicit a positive emotional response from their customers?

   Our research offers some clues. We found that shoppers respond well to retailers
                                                                                                  Age 25-44                                   58%
   that communicate their values authentically and consistently at every purchase and
   post-purchase touchpoint. In these cases, customers are made to feel they are more
   than just an ‘order number’ in the eyes of the retailer, and this in turn drives long-term
                                                                                                  Age 45-54                             47%

   • 50% of consumers are more likely to buy again when they agree with a brand’s
     values. This shows the importance of communicating brand values authentically                Age 65-74                      35%

         Dollar Shave Club (DSC)
         Dollar Shave Club created not only a loyal customer base with a
         curated, high-touch customer experience, but a community of
         fans. The business is underpinned by a core business philosophy
         focused on customer service, where customer experience is also a
         main differentiator from competitors.

         It is committed to providing the most convenient experience
         possible, by providing easy-to-understand shipment status
         information through to keeping DSC Members (their customers)
         within the brand experience.

         For example, DSC highlights select assets on their shipment

         upsells, requests for referrals or app downloads, making this new

         John Lewis Retail
         Whilst Amazon continues to hold the number one spot in
         customer service, it’s the customer experience that John Lewis
         provides that keeps them at the all-important second.

         ‘Never knowingly undersold’, John Lewis is renowned for putting
         customer service first. Most recently, it has been placing an
         increased importance on ‘experience’ as part of the retail offer
         with ideas like The Residence, a furnished apartment-style space
         in three of its stores that consumers can apply to stay overnight or
         host a dinner party in.

         While this may seem to be focused on the pre-sales experience, the
         invitation to take part in the programme is offered first to existing
         customers. It is an initiative which incorporates personalising
         individual customer interactions and behaviour to support the
         post-sales journey.

         Most importantly for customers, John Lewis spends £8 million a
         year on ‘goodwill gestures’, acknowledging that while some things,
         like a TV breaking during delivery, is not the business’ fault, it
         will ‘take the wrap’. And while the £8 million may seem high, it’s
         just a “fraction” of its marketing budget and an investment worth
         making to ensure customers are kept happy – and encouraged
         through trust and respect to repeat-purchase.
                                                                                              Key takeaway:

The post-purchase hierarchy of needs – The essential ingredients for building brand loyalty                                                                                                                     16
Conclusion
         Customers value businesses that keep conversations going, provide helpful information and stay on
         top of their concerns, whether it’s an issue with a delayed delivery or a question about exchange policies
         or what to buy next. Brand loyalty is only achieved through consistency and direct engagement. The
         product itself is often secondary, particularly when bought through a retailer.

         Our Post-Purchase Hierarchy of Needs provides retailers and brands with a framework for building
         brands loyalty. By focusing on the Four Cs, online merchants can better meet their customers’ demands
         stand out from competitors and fuel repeat purchases.

         Through rich, proactive and meaningful Communication brands can give customer peace of mind
         while starting new and potentially profitable conversations. And by providing customers greater
         Choice over delivery options they can create customer-first post-purchase experiences that better meet
         the needs of today’s empowered customers. Brands and retailers can build further loyalty by giving
         customers Control over their deliveries and the ability to change their mind over when and where their
         packages are received. And finally, brand and retailers need to build a real Connection with customers
         through compelling experiences that reflect the company’s values to win the hearts of consumers.

         Meeting the needs of customers post-purchase is the last piece in solving the puzzle of exceptional
         customer experiences. Brands and retailers that get in their first, stand to secure a significant
         competitive advantage.
