Consumers are 4x more likely to return and recommend than satisfied consumers. Consumers also don’t separate “temperature” from the “product” in the “brand experience.”  Consumers spend money on a “hot cup of coffee,” an “icy-cold soda” or “steaming cup of chicken noodle soup.”  Not one of those consumers ever said, “The coffee was lukewarm, but delicious!”
