2018 Customer Engagement & Loyalty Statistics

By Ashley Autry | Updated on Feb 13, 2018 8:31:00 AM

What causes customers to disengage from brands? 
Conversely, what causes them to fall in love with a brand and never defect?
Do loyalty programs matter anymore? Are people just looking for freebies, handouts, and the lowest possible price?
These are questions we're all seeking answers to. 
We're here to help, and we're bringing data with us!
Just as we've done over the past several years, we're compiling every relevant piece of customer engagement and loyalty data publicly released this year. We'll add new data weekly, if not more frequently, so bookmark - or subscribe to our weekly email, which will highlight the most interesting and topical stats.
Of course, these stats plus stats from recent years can be found on our Ultimate Collection of Loyalty Statistics.
As always, we'll provide a link back to the original source of the data. If you have research you'd like us to include, feel free to drop it in the comments.
