Customer Experience Is Vital For Your Company’s Growth
Personalized, fast and smooth customer experience guarantees the success of your business. The one who understands how to engage and maintain today’s customer will leave their competitors behind.
The prevalence of mobile devices, WI-FI zones, as well as 3G/4G technology has significantly changed consumer behavior. In the world of information overload data must be accessed quickly and easily from a smartphone or tablet. This means that your company’s website has to be adaptive and user-friendly at the same time. Therefore, a mobile website or application is now a priority, and not a “nice-to-have” in terms of customer experience.
Customers expect you to be there for them 24/7, and if your automated email response is: “We will get back to you in 24 hours”, that is not good enough to your busy customer anymore.
Users are actively sharing their thoughts and experiences online, and expect to get a prompt and direct response to comments and suggestions left on a company’s social media profile. This means that we are now bound to constantly monitor what our customers have to say about us on social media and beyond as a way to gauge our company and brand reputation. If you are given ideas on how to improve your product or service, show your customers that you care, respond and implement the good ideas. Take the customer experience to a new level.
Employee experience is as important as customer experience. The members of your staff are the ones who present your company to your customers.
If a bank employee fails to assist the customer and does not offer a solution to the problem a client addressed, the bank’s image is spoiled (or worse — you can lose a customer!). According to the findings of a recent study, an unhappy customer is 20 times more likely to share negative feedback about an experience than a satisfied one.
Make sure that employees understand your brand’s philosophy and feel an emotional attachment to it. Customer experience is more than a purchase of a product or service, it is an association with a certain lifestyle.
Failing to deliver an appropriate customer experience will make people turn to your competitors, whereas adaptation to new strategies of managing customer experience is one of the milestones of your success.
