Loyalty Beyond Relevance

A few months back I posted on Google’s new Zero Moment Of Truth (ZMOT) e-book, featuring a foreword by our own Dina Howell, Global CEO of Saatchi & Saatchi X. ZMOT is the principle that more people are doing their research online before heading to the store, home of P&G’s famous First Moment Of Truth, when the shopper stands at the shelf and decides what to buy.

The importance of ZMOT is reinforced by a recent Australian study that also adds fuel to the Lovemarks fire. The study not only found that people are using the web more often to research product purchases - it showed that when going through search results, they were more likely to click on websites from a brand they trusted than links that were relevant to their search terms.

This is loyalty beyond reason, the heart of Lovemarks - where emotional connections and relationships trump information and irritation. Relevance is irrelevant. To win in this moment of truth - as in all others - you need to be irresistible.

A cardiologist needs to be well-versed in interventional cardiology and have board certification. The need for an interventional cardiologist is necessary because it is the kind of care most hospitals provide. More and more procedures are being done that focus on this type of cardiology, because of the numerous advantages of using this approach. Patients tend to have less pain, fewer scars, and the postoperative recovery isn't as long. Some procedures more commonly used in interventional cardiology are angioplasty, valvuloplasty, congenital heart defect correction, coronary thrombectomy, cardiac ablation.
