Court Your Customers

COURT YOUR CUSTOMERS #CustomerRelationshipGoals Make 2016 the Year of the Customer A good friendship or romantic relationship takes work. The same goes for customer relationships. Today's consumers are looking for brands with experiences that feel personalized and effortless and will last long beyond the transaction. Great customer service will keep that relationship strong. And it can keep the love (of your brand) alive. Listen to their needs Feedback forms, surveys, and behavioral analytics can help you understand your customers. Use data sources to give your customers what they want, when they want it, and through the channels they prefer. 89% of businesses will compete mainly on customer experience by 2020. What Customers Want Most 47% 42% 40% 36% Fast answers Quick resolutions Personal interaction Effortless experiences Be responsive Although many brands place emphasis on strengthening the customer experience, the real relationship gurus focus on responsiveness and speed.
