The Loyalty Leap Hits Best-Seller Lists in First Week, Touting That Any Company can Win on Customer Intimacy
Book Debuts on New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal Best-Seller Lists
NEW YORK, May 24, 2012 /CNW/ - Recognized throughout the loyalty-marketing industry for his success and expertise, it is no surprise that LoyaltyOne President and CEO Bryan Pearson has already landed on multiple best seller lists with his first book, The Loyalty Leap: Turning Customer Information into Customer Intimacy, published by Penguin Portfolio.
The book ranked at No. 5, No. 3 and No. 10 on the New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal non-fiction best-seller lists, respectively. It was the No. 2 book on the Wall Street Journal's hardcover business book list. Officially launched Thursday, May 10, The Loyalty Leap is available in bookstores and online at Amazon.com (U.S. and Canada, Barnes & Noble, Indigo, Books-A-Million and Indiebound and is available for download on iTunes or Kindle.
Pearson says his original goal in publishing The Loyalty Leap was to "shift the conversation about customer data from the marketing department to the boardroom, and eventually to the front lines where the consumer lives." And Pearson knows a thing or two about collecting and using customer data. His company operates the AIR MILES Reward Program, N. America's leading coalition loyalty program with a 70 percent household penetration rate in Canada.
For marketers, collecting data is relatively easy - what's difficult is figuring out how to use data to the consumer's advantage. In The Loyalty Leap, Pearson reveals exactly what leading companies like Shell Oil, Hilton, Best Buy and AIR MILES do with their data - and how they do it so effectively that their customers willingly share personal information to further benefit themselves.
