Consumer-switching behavior refers to customers abandoning a product or service in favor of a competitor's. For example, a customer might move funds from one bank to another if she is dissatisfied with the customer service at the first.
Effect The specter of consumer switching doesn't haunt all businesses equally. For example, a mattress store might not depend that heavily on repeat business. Instead, it might focus on offering appealing deals to draw in customers.
The bargain prices motivate customers not to switch, so customers might tolerate impersonal service, for example, or pushy salespeople. Mattresses are infrequent purchases, and the market is competitive, so the store must permanently focus on attracting new customers.
For example, banks, cellular-service providers and insurance companies offer continuous service to customers. After such businesses drop the ball, their customers are likely to avoid further problems by switching to competitors that have better reputations.
