30 Insightful Customer Behaviour Stats 2023

Customer behaviour is constantly changing, and it can be hard to keep up. 

With brand values swaying purchase decisions, customers turning to social media to answer their queries, and influencers doing more influencing than ever before, the digital landscape has shifted considerably. And that’s without the impact of AI…

But what does this mean for businesses?

Nowadays, customers are more likely to browse around before buying. With so much choice out there, switching between brands has become the norm and customer loyalty is even harder to retain. This puts increasing pressure on businesses to stay relevant and effectively engage online audiences.
