    True customer loyalty is not a vague or intangible emotion. It is a definable and manageable motivator of human behavior that crosses all cultural, social, and economic boundaries, and exists in every relationship we have. Measuring customer loyalty is an extremely powerful tool for growth in any organization. If it is measured correctly, analyzed accurately, and delivered to those who can do something about it. Organizations often make the mistake of forgetting to maintain their loyalty. They forget to think about what their clients need from them, what they will respond to, and how their behavior can be changed.

    Think about this, do you ever ask yourself, "Do I know when one of my clients is about to walk out the door?" You should ask yourself this because it's a business question that needs to have an answer. Here's something else to think about when measuring customer loyalty.

Some people say, "Not every battle can be won." Well, the truth is, not every battle is a loss. Start by rethinking how your approach to measuring customer loyalty. Especially, if you're having trouble understanding your client's happiness. It's possible the solution is right in front of you.
