Branding

Do you want to know how to get your customers hooked to your brand? I mean, won’t you love to have a repeat customer. The more repeat customer your business earns, the higher the sales.

Here are 4 game changing points to create a great customer experience

1. Think of customer experience holistically

It has become a trend amongst businesses (small to large) to prioritize one touchpoint of their customer’s journey over another. Some focus on the customer support/service department and assume that if the staff in that department are doing their best interacting with or resolving customers problems they are giving the best experience.

Well, you have to drop that mindset. The customer support team is just one touchpoint amongst others your customers would interact with.

Therefore, list out all the touchpoints of your customer’s journey and ensure each element delivers at the same frequency as others. Let’s say you are running an e-commerce business; your customer’s journey might look like this;

  • Viewing your ad or any of your company’s content
  • Visiting your website to search for their need
  • Placing an order
  • Payment for an order
  • Receiving their package
  • Using the product
