Seth Godin is my go to person on the internet when it comes to reading good stuff, especially about marketing. Because in Marketing it’s NOT always about what’s right or wrong/ good or bad/ black or white, but what really INSPIRES you!

Customer loyalty reflects a customer’s willingness to buy from or work with a brand again and again, and it’s the result of a positive customer experience, customer satisfaction, and the value of the products or services the customer gets from the transaction.

For someone whose survival depends on food delivery services, I found this article extremely fascinating. I’ve always admired data diggers who make mounds of numbers and excel sheet columns understandable but Grubhub’s story is on another level. One line of the article describes their challenge so well – “Grubhub had 14 million menu items and the only thing they had in common was that sometimes people ate them”
