Customer Seduction: How to make customers LOVE your brand

It’s wonderful to have customers who love your brand.

They’ll be enormously loyal.

They’ll tell all their friends about you and they’ll defend your company to the death.

But to make them love you, you must first seduce them with your lovEEE:

The 3 Steps to making customers love your brand

  1. Entice
  2. Enrich
  3. Enable

1. Entice

To entice your customers, your product should bring Sensory Pleasure.

This means your product should be well designed on all fronts. It should be look, feel, and if applicable, sound and smell good.

Creating sensory pleasure can be a little trickier if your product isn’t physical, focus on UX (User Experience) design and create a great user interface.

Remember, seduction begins with physical attraction.

Example: Dyson

Dyson is a brand that manufactures high end household appliances with an emphasis on exceptional design.

Founder James Dyson believes so strongly in great design that he founded the James Dyson Award, an international student design competition that rewards exceptional product design from students around the world.

Thanks to Dyson, we can now confidently use the words ’’Sexy’’ and ’’Vacuum Cleaner’’ in the same sentence.

Relate your brand to your customers by creating shared values and principles, then craft a message that resonates with your customers’ identity.

Commonalities are the secret to creating love.

Example: Chipotle

Mexican burrito chain Chipotle’s branding and marketing strategy is completely focused on resonating with their primary customer segment – millennials who care about the origin of their food.

With the tagline ’’Food With Integrity’’, Chipotle only uses sustainably raised ingredients from family farmers and when possible, organic and local produce. Meat comes from animals raised humanely and without the use of antibiotics or added hormones.

Chipotle gained extra reputation by shying away from traditional media because millennials felt the format was inauthentic and difficult to connect with.

Step aside, fast food, Chipotle’s here to Taco – ver.
