Why is it important?

Nowadays, in the goods and services market, retaining existing customers is more profitable than attracting new customers. Since latter costs more than the former, having loyal customers is now a major goal for many organizations. Also, with the development of e-businesses, creating this loyalty as e loyalty is highly important.


The findings indicate that, although focus strategy is more effective on creating e-loyalty, no significant difference was observed between the two other strategies in having more influence on e-loyalty.
