Howard says that the first step is to appeal on an emotional level (the heart), in order to establish trust with the customer. Trust is re-inforced when you deliver on your promise through the product, service or information you provide (the head). Using engagement points to build brand loyalty with these approaches influences the customer on a “gut” level so that your company is experienced to be in alignment with their values and lifestyle.
