Almost 9 out of 10 US consumers say they would pay more to ensure a superior customer experience. Moreover, it takes 12 positive experiences to make up for one unresolved negative experience. No wonder the world’s best run organizations are obsessed with delivering outstanding customer experience.
Prior to contacting you, more than 80% of customers have done their homework regarding your products/services and those of your competition. They have a preferred buying channel, whether it is face-to-face, your website, the Internet, your contact center, etc. To secure their business, you need to be present in their preferred channel with the right product or service, at the right time, and at the right price. You also must understand each customer’s journey preferences, regularly monitor customer satisfaction, and have in place a closed-loop process to resolve customer service issues quickly. Anything less can lead to lost sales, lost customers, and ultimately to your company’s demise.
However, your Customer Experience strategy can’t be a stand-alone initiative. Rather, it must be a component of an Integrated Customer-Centric Strategy that seamlessly integrates Customer Experience with Traditional Media, Social Media, eCommerce, and Emerging Technology activities to ensure that you optimally engage with each customer.
