Once you’re delivering data-driven CX, automation is a logical next step to scale up. However, algorithms are not perfect, and should always be supervised by humans. Here’s why.
A perfect customer experience today is no guarantee for tomorrow. Lives and even whole economies change, forcing you to adapt, improvise and overcome. Or at least continuously optimize and improve customer experiences.
Whether you’re aware of it or not, your company has a brand image. Customers expect certain things from your brand, based directly on your own branding or on external factors. This brand promise has an impact on your customer experience. So, if you want happy clients, deliver on your brand promise.
Optimizing your cx means not only understanding customers’ needs, but also acting on them. And to do that, you need to think customer-centric. Easier said than done, right? Thinking customer-centric means putting the customer first, front-to-end. The good news: there’s a blueprint for that.
Where did you last experience exceptional customer service? If your local bakery, grocer or trusted hairdresser come to mind, that’s no coincidence. It’s because they know you and act accordingly. The better you know your client, the better the experience you can offer them.
Move over gold, myrrh and incense. The true treasure these days is data, so you should treat it as such. People are becoming increasingly aware of how much personal data they leave behind, and it’s a reason to be cautious.
What if Jesus viewed his disciples as mere servants? He might have gone down in history as just another ungrateful boss, and the good word would probably have never spread. Think about your own employees not just as hired hands, but as true ambassadors.
Every customer interaction counts. But you should never lose sight of the overall journey. Focus on the customer journey not just the pre-sales and sales phases.
