I’m on the CRM databases of at least a dozen well reputed brands. My usage of these brands classify me as one of the top-most tier customer and from time to time I do get emails (mostly irrelevant) from these brands. I think these emails defeat the very purpose of CRM and these world-class brands & their consultants managing the CRM programs have no sense of what it takes to engage with a customer. They are still into one-way message bombardment rather than a dialogue. Almost all these emails come from a ‘no-reply’ id and stops me from further interacting with the brand. Imagine the opportunity loss as well as erosion of brand equity because I curse the brand every time I get ‘no-reply’ email.
