What’s the Difference Between Customer Satisfaction and Customer Loyalty? by Jimmy Rodriguez
(HubSpot) Customer satisfaction is a measurement of a customer’s attitude toward a product, a service, or a brand. It’s usually measured by a customer satisfaction survey on a numerical scale. Customer loyalty is a set of behaviors and attitudes that a customer exhibits that demonstrate loyalty to a product, service, or brand, such as repeat purchases or choosing the brand over a competitor.
My Comment: A satisfied customer is not a loyal customer. I’ve preached this for years. Satisfactory is a rating and loyalty is an emotion. This excellent article takes a deeper dive into the concept of satisfaction versus loyalty, including different ways to measure both.

My Comment: The title of this article grabbed my attention. I have memories of grabbing a number and sitting for an hour before it was called, only to find out when I was being “helped” that I was missing some a document that wasn’t on the list of what I was told to bring. We can learn a lot from good and bad service. Most companies will find a few reminders in the ten tips the author shares with us.
