It is an undeniable truth and human nature for people to seek only pleasant experiences in life. No one wants to go through a negative experience or wastes time. This, of course, includes pleasant experiences as a customer because ultimately, we are all customers at some point in our lives.
Outstanding customer experience is crucial when it comes to business. However, oftentimes most business owners get caught up in other aspects and do not put much thought into customer experience or even worse, choose to ignore it altogether. Does this sound like you? Well, you should reconsider your priority. The truth is, ignoring customer experience can be fatal to your business.
How do we improve customer experience then? Before we go any further, first we have to understand what customer experience is.
So, What is Customer Experience?
According to Gartner Inc., customer experience is defined as “the customer’s perceptions and related feelings caused by the one-off and cumulative effect of interactions with a supplier’s employees, systems, channels or products.” In other words, it is your customers’ overall impression of your company throughout their journey using your company’s services. The bottom line is customers’ opinions of your company do matter. What they perceive as customers holds a big role in your company’s growth.
Let’s put ourselves in the customers’ shoes. As a customer, you want your needs addressed with the best service in the least amount of time, right? Why wouldn’t you? Like it has been said, seeking a remarkable service equals seeking a pleasant experience, as it is human nature. The more pleasant the customer experience is, the more likely you are to have a positive impression of the company. On the contrary, if you go through an unpleasant experience as a customer, you are going to have a negative impression upon the company, which will lead to dissatisfaction.
When customers feel dissatisfied, they tend to turn their backs on the company and find another similar business that provides better services. Unpleasant experiences mean driving away and losing customers, which is every business leader’s worst nightmare. Therefore, customer experience is one of the fundamental aspects for a business to run smoothly.
Without Customers, There is No Business
Thanks to the advancement of technology, it’s easier for more and more people to start and run businesses nowadays. As a result, the competition between rival businesses in the same area of expertise increases. Admittedly, in order to prevail, one’s business needs to stand out from any other similar businesses. So, why don’t you consider focusing on customer experience? Offer something unique that makes their journey with your company more beneficial, time-saving, seamless, and hassle-free. You will soon see how it will positively affect your company.
Most business owners prioritize revenue. What they don’t realize is that customer retention is very crucial in maintaining a business. Frankly speaking, without customers, your business is doomed. There’s no use in denying it. Therefore, it is a necessity for your customers to have satisfactory services.
