Strategy For Success
If You Don’t Know Where You’re Going, You’ll Probably End Up Somewhere Else.
This goes for your customers too

Slider

Every interaction your customers have with your business builds a customer “experience” journey that they will tell others about…

BAD or GOOD!

YOUR
Customer Journey Strategy
WILL increase your
Ubiquity Footprint

Most Businesses Charge ahead…

  • Build A Website…
    …because everyone’s got one
  • “Do” Social Media…
    …because everyone does it
  • Send Marketing Emails…
    …because it’s the “only” way
And then they sit back assuming instant success, and then wonder why things didn’t work, and have troublesome customers.

Eventually they’ll give up, thinking that marketing is just too hard.

You probably know someone like that, right?

These elements are all important… in fact, ESSENTIAL. However, WITHOUT the right strategy to adhere to, NONE of them will synchronise to deliver a consistent, customer focused, personalised customer journey.

SUCCESSFUL Businesses Plan ahead…

  • Understanding Market Trends…
    …because customers make them
  • Learning Customer Needs…
    …because while everyone has needs, making assumptions leads to mistakes
  • Foreseeing/Adapting To Customer Behaviours…
    …because you can pre-empt them
  • Devising no-brainer offers to demonstrate upfront value…
    …because people buy-in sooner
  • Inserting catchnets to save customers ‘ dropping-off ‘
    …because replacing LOST customers with NEW customers costs 4 times as much.
  • Building Trust In Your Brand…
    …because trust is a value
  • WOW Factor…
    …because happy customers return
  • Surpassing Customer Expectations…
    …because they’ll spread the word

Mind The ‘Customer’ Gap

What you are probably experiencing now is:

  • Not enough IDEAL customers see you. So, you spend 80% of your time on your WORST customers… while your BEST customers go un-noticed.
  • Not enough exposure as the expert you are! And when there is, you still are not getting your share of the market. Why? Being the expert is not the only thing people look for, even with good marketing.
Did you know…

  • 65% of customers find a positive experience with a brand to be more influential than great advertising.
  • 73% of customers say that customer experience is a very important factor in their purchasing decision.
    Note: Customer experience starts long before you know of them.
  • 80% of consumers point to speed, convenience, friendly service (as well as knowledgeable help) as the most important elements of positive customer experience.
    (studies by PWC)
  • Not knowing how many are seeing your services & offerings (via the website or any other source) OR knowing how many are leaving without taking the next step.
    That is the difference between a CUSTOMER and a LOST OPPORTUNITY!
Did you know…

  • More than 6 in 10 consumers go to a website or mobile app first.
    (study by American Express)
  • ONLY 10% of consumers are willing to stay online for over five minutes for customer service.
    (study by Genesys)
  • 42% of espondents have LEFT a business due to poor customer service.
    (study by New Voice Media)

  • Not enough sales… an obvious one, yes, but did you know that the global shopping cart abandonment rate is 75.52%? There is a reason for that, and it is rarely WHAT you are selling.
Did you know…

  • MORE than 50% of Americans have scrapped a planned purchase or transaction because of bad service.
    (study by American Express)
  • Satisfied customers are more likely to upgrade or add services and are less likely to cancel. So, find out how to satisfy them BEFORE they purchase.
    (study by Mckinsey)

  • Too many customer drop-offs… i.e. Your customers “drop off the face of the earth” after only one purchase… Not enough returning, overly satisfied customers… or not a good enough follow-up offering, or system to deliver it at the right time.
Did you know…

  • 9 out of 10 consumers value when a business knows their account history and current activities with that company.
    (study by Genesys)
  • Lack of speed in interactions with their suppliers is the number one pain point, mentioned twice as often as price.
    (study by Temkin Group)
  • 63% of consumers say they’d share more personal information with a company that offers a great experience.
    (study by PWC)
  • 30% of consumers switch providers because they feel that there is no reward for loyalty.
    (study by CallMiner)
  • Loyal customers spend 67% more than new ones.
    (study by CMO)

  • Secondary Objective
    OFFLINE
    – Mapping out the journey from the first point of contact with offline prospect sources (e.g. walk-in-customer, phone call, direct referral, advert in print, billboard, radio /interview advert, etc. etc.).
