Want to Make Retail Customers Happy? Give Them a ‘Wow’ Experience by Thomas Robertson and Paula Courtney
(Knowledge@Wharton) Wharton’s Thomas Robertson and Paula Courtney from Verde Group talk about a new study showing how retailers benefit by delivering a great customer experience.
My comment: I’m often asked if buying habits have changed after a year of COVID-19. At the beginning of the pandemic, customers were confused, concerned, and scared. There was definitely a sign of change. But after a year of living through the pandemic, customers’ expectations have gone back to the way they used to be. Their expectations haven’t changed much. In other words, retailers can’t use the pandemic as an excuse for poor service.

How to Achieve a More Empathetic Customer Experience through Digital Channels by Jeff Epstein
(Retail Customer Experience) This article explains why it takes more than speed to satisfy and build loyalty with a customer. Companies that implement a strategic omnichannel solution for customer service teams are more likely to foster more empathetic customer experiences.
My comment: Empathy is the word of the year. More and more, customers want the people they do business with to understand them. Empathy helps build connections, trust, and in time, loyal customers.
