2020 is here and with the new year comes new marketing strategies. This year is shaping up to be the year of the customer, with a larger focus on enhancing the customer experience. By putting more attention on the customer, you’re able to highlight a positive environment and high-quality service for your consumers. Check out why the customer experience is so important and how you can do it.
Why Does The Customer Experience Matter?
A massive amount of content is put on the Internet every day, meaning it’s no longer enough to only provide information about your products/services. You have to reel consumers in with an intriguing experience. Did you know that 73% of people say that customer experience is an important factor when making a purchase decision? That’s a vast majority of your target audience that’s expecting a quality experience from the companies they chose to interact with. Not only are they expecting it, but only 49% of US consumers have said that today’s companies provide a good customer experience. That means that more than half of businesses today are dropping the ball, which is a great opportunity for your company to outshine your competition.
What Makes A Great Customer Experience?
It’s all about efficiency, convenience, quality customer service, knowledge, and ease. These five things are what your customers are looking for when they’re interacting with your business. You want to create an environment where the customer feels completely comfortable. Making the purchasing process as easy as possible, improving your customer service interactions, and making sure your employees are knowledgeable and ready to help are just a few ways you can improve your current customer experience.
It’s also important that you stay up-to-date on technology, branding, and personalization. While these aren’t directly related to the customer experience, they can help set your business apart.
