These pioneers strove to streamline their customer transactions and maximize touchpoints over the lifecycle. On average, these dedicated, innovative firms spent the better part of a year implementing expensive CRM systems and renewing maintenance contracts.

After all this devotion, investment, and IT integration, how could it be that up to 70% of CRM projects fail to live up to expectations? This book investigates the reason for relationship marketings failure, and uncovers that this failure is not due solely to CRM IT implementation and strategy problems. The failure to establish long-term relationships with customers is because companies and research have ignored the emotional-relational component of developmental stages in human relationships. Relationship marketing is incomplete unless it models the stuff of real interpersonal relationships - developmental stages, trust, emotional mechanisms, and deeply felt commitment.

This thesis is supported most strongly by the critical finding that emotions (rather than simply transactions or other success factors) are the primary drivers of stage progression. Therefore, traditional CRM software and, by implication, the relationship marketing vision of the firm is simply looking in the wrong place. The CRM technology itself tends to obfuscate the naked realization and raison detre, as James Autry profoundly mused, that There is no business, there are only people. The research in this book empirically maps the customers emotional-relational journey, so that marketing may be better able to connect on an emotional level to where customers are in the relationship stages to earn, not only commitment and profits, but also relational well-being.
