Improving Customer Experiences

Most purchase decisions are based on how your customers feel about your brand and the quality of the experience they have with your company.

No matter how objective a customer’s purchasing process may seem, their seemingly rational analysis is inherently shaped by their perception of your brand and your company. As customers become more demanding than ever before, their expectations for consistent, connected and personalized experiences are growing.

The touchpoints you need to create in order to amplify the positive moments of customer engagement with your products and services exist in an increasingly complex web of digital experiences, human-centered services, and physical product interactions.

As a business leader, it’s critical that you deeply understand the emotional and rational desires and unmet needs of all stakeholders (internal and external) that influence the creation of a holistic customer experience for your company. Understanding these nuances will enable you to create better customer relationships.

In B2B contexts, your customers need to feel that they’re working with a reputable brand that will provide continued, reliable support for the products and services offered to them and that those products and services will deliver the performance as advertised. Additionally, their purchasing journey may be complex and filled with internal hurdles they need to overcome, so they need to be reassured along the way that they’re buying from a company that’s easy to work with and understanding of their procurement intricacies.

In B2C contexts, decisions tend to be more emotional, so product desirability, convenience-of-purchase, and ease-of-use are heavily weighted in defining how consumers perceive your brand overall. Designing products and services that check all of those boxes is the first step to building brand loyalty. From there, continuously optimizing the individual touchpoints and interactions that customers have with your brand along their journey from discovery through retention becomes crucial to staying one step ahead of your competition.

Designing the right customer experience is about composing an environment of customer engagement opportunities that reinforce your brand values and encourage the desired customer behavior.

Customer experience optimization should be at the forefront of how you make, market, sell, deliver, and service your products.
