Author Bryan Pearson, president and CEO of LoyaltyOne, sees his work as the “scientific pursuit of unlocking the secrets that motivate consumer behavior.” Pearson knows who customers are, what they care about and what makes them tick. He finds that most businesses are shockingly misinformed about their customers, so he handily shows readers how to foster customer engagement, trust and loyalty by collecting, analyzing and applying consumer data. Pearson mentions his firm by name more than 50 times, which grows tiresome, but his advice makes good sense. getAbstract recommends his practical text to readers seeking to create a strong loyalty marketing program and to build a committed client base by generating enduring, profitable connections with customers.

  • How loyalty programs work,
  • What benefits they provide, and
  • Why and how companies should fully commit to their customers.
