6 Reasons Why Business Must Focus on the Customer Experience
Six Reasons Why Business Must Focus on the Customer Experience
A recent Bloomberg Businessweek survey revealed that “delivering a great customer experience” has become the new imperative: 80% of the companies polled rated customer experience as a top strategic objective.
We agree with this survey and here are six reasons why.
1) A great customer experience
has the potential of becoming a businesses
sustainable competitive advantage in
a world where sustainable competitive advantages are
It’s important to note that we are talking about the development of a business strategy based around people, your team and your customers.
2) A great customer experience grows both loyalty and word of mouth recommendation in a world where loyalty is on the decline and customer recommendation is now the most powerful form of advertising.
3) A great customer experience increases team
engagement and productivity in a country where 61 percent of
employees reluctantly drag themselves out of bed each
morning to go to work and productivity remains at very low
Engagement comes from involvement. Our customer experience development program is based on the fact that “your people support what they create”. Everyone in your organisation plays a role in what you deliver your customers by way of an experience.
4) A great customer experience
takes the focus off price in a highly competitive and
commoditised market where the only competitive advantage
business can come up with is price.
A customer experience strategy is focused on identifying and adding customer value that’s much more than just a focus on price.
5) A great customer experience and the
business culture it creates plays a significant role in
attracting the right people in a world where far to often we
have the wrong people delivering an organisations customer
The right people delivering your customer experience are vital. The key is identifying during your customer experience development what those right people look like.
6) A customer experience strategy capitalises on
the teams innovation and creativity, two areas that are very
much lacking in business and are the key to the on-going
development of the experiences a business consistently
delivers to its customers.
