BARE International shares an article by Retail Touch Points – Retailers Struggle To Drive Profitable Post-Purchase Experiences: Research.

‘A new study from the CMO Council reveals that while most brands identify enhancing the product ownership experience as a key differentiator, there’s a significant gap in their efforts to take advantage of post-purchase revenue, profit and relationship-building opportunities.

The report, titled Elevate What Consumers Appreciate: Increase Brand Attraction by Upgrading Ownership Satisfaction, showed that while 93% of manufacturers view ownership experiences as important to the business and a significant brand differentiator, only 19% derive more than 10% of their revenue from aftermarket services.

Retailers, who have a more direct connection with end consumers than manufacturers, appear to be taking the lead in this area.
