Amazon named consumers' favourite brand
By Sahar Nazir - Jan 23rd, 09:30
Amazon has been named by consumers as their favourite brand, with other retailers such as Marks & Spencer, John Lewis, Sainsbury’s and Tesco following close behind.
According to the DMA’s “Customer Engagement – How to win trust and loyalty” survey, 67 per cent of consumers who chose Amazon as their favourite brand said it was because of brand loyalty rather than convenience.
The percentage of survey participants who felt loyalty towards brands was stronger with John Lewis and M&S, with 89 per cent and 88 per cent respectively.
However, unlike John Lewis and M&S, Amazon was the only brand to feature inside the top five across a variety of different categories, such as retail, technology and entertainment.
“It is interesting to see that Amazon features across several sectors as the preferred brand,” DMA managing director Rachel Aldighieri said.
“Amazon’s combination of familiarity, ease and choice is a compelling offer, providing consumers with one place to serve many of their needs."
“Their vast product range and integrated services entice consumers to stick with a brand they know and love.”Retail Gazette
