All brands deliver something.
Smart brands work to deliver an exceptional customer
experience at every customer touchpoint. Other brands
usually succeed only in delivering a wide range of
satisfaction to their customers. It’s up to you to decide
what kind of brand you’re going to be.
As the numbers above indicate, mobile device technology continues to advance and be adopted by people all over
the world. The result is an empowered consumer phenomenon, which enables customers to shop online, compare
brands and prices, read reviews and feedback, and share customer experiences via social media channels.
You may be surprised to learn that customers and competitors aren’t the only threat to good customer experience
data. When it comes to collecting valid customer feedback, your own employees have considerable influence, as well.
Fortunately, that just means the power to control your data lies within your organization.
The Wave 1 2012 Empathica Consumer Insights Panel surveyed more than 6,500
U.S. consumers, evaluating consumer perceptions on topics ranging from customer
feedback behaviors to the use of technology in retail shopping experiences.
To get in front of these consumer
trends, brands need to move beyond
“viewing” guest feedback and evolve
their guest experience management
programs into Social CEM (Customer
Management Solutions) solutions
that drive action and encourage
positive staff behaviors.
Online reputation has always been important for
brands – and this is even more critical in the social
media age. In fact, according to Forbes1, a brand’s
reputation was recognized as the number one
driver for business value.
