Each week I read a number of customer service and customer experience articles from various resources. Here are my top five picks from last week. I have added my comment about each article and would like to hear what you think too.
(CMSWire) Trends that if recognized and acted upon, can help companies shape their digital experience strategies for a decade to come.
My Comment: What does customer experience (CX) look like a year from now? How about ten years from now? The author of this article shares her observations based on trends, not guesses, about the future of CX. Something that is a hot topic today, and will only become more important is privacy. It builds trust, and if handled improperly, can erode it (quickly). Good insights on several trends that are leading us forward.
(Ameyo) There are no questions that customer service is an integral component of any business’s success. You might have an awesome product and great pricing but if your customer’s experience is not good, then you are losing the ultimate battle to win their hearts.
My Comment: Consider this: According to a recent Microsoft study, 54 % of customers have higher expectations for customer service than in previous years. And, if you look at the younger consumers, aged 18-34, that number jumps to 66%. Great brands are teaching all customers what it is like to receive great customer service, and customers now expect – if not demand – that from all the companies they do business with.
(Freshdesk) While workplace culture is more organization and employee-oriented, service culture puts customers at the forefront of every business goal, organizational vision, and support outcome.
My Comment: If you want to deliver great service and a great customer experience, it has to start on the inside of the company. I’ve often said that customer service is not a department, but a philosophy to be embraced by all employees of an organization. In other words, it’s built into the culture. This excellent article focuses on exactly that; what it takes to build a customer service culture.
(Forbes) Fifteen associates of Forbes Communications Council offer advice on what businesses that want to focus on enhancing their customer experience should implement or improve.
My Comment: Here is an excellent list compiled by the Forbes Communication Council. You’re sure to find something of value here. Fifteen council members who have “in the trenches” experience share their ideas on how to enhance an organization’s customer experience.
