ADOTAS – Well, “ultimate” is a tall order, but in this new infographic, website testing and personalization company Monetate claims it has the formula when it comes to the customer experience, both online and offline. Because, really, it’s not all about you, okay? You can develop a product that crushes all competitors’ offerings like bugs, but if your target customer is clicking around your website, confused, thinking, “Well, this is annoying,” you’re in a bad place. According the stats Monetate has compiled, 97 percent of customers said an online experience influenced whether or not they purchased a product or service, and 89 percent said they stopped doing business with a company after an unpleasant customer experience. Meanwhile, 73 percent said a “superior customer experience” would inspire them to purchase more from that business, and 65 percent said an online experience changed their perspective of a brand or its products or services. So, what’s to do? According to Monetate, the conversation should continue, both online and offline, between brand and customer; the brand should “talk to your customers like you know them” (through data targeting and other methods); and the brand should help the customer find what they’re looking both online and of. That’s just the start; scope the infographic below.
