As they often say “A customer is always right.”, and that is basically true because if you are engaged in a business, you should be ready to face all the challenges that will come along the way including handling customer complaints. Improving customer experience is important to gain higher customer referral rates, drives customer loyalty, increases customer satisfaction, improves customer retention, reduces customer churn and create a competitive advantage.
- When it comes to enhancing user experience labs, you have to know the needs and wants of your customers. This is not only a basis for improving your product or services but also a way of showing to your customers that you really understand them by giving what they truly deserve. One way to know your customers’ needs and wants is by conducting a survey. When conducting a survey, you must focus on the customer side, product side and service management.
- Emphasizing in the team and inter-department collaboration is essential to deliver great value to the customer. For example, as much as you focus on quality control, it is also important to set metrics for your customer support such as Net Promoter Score or a customer satisfaction tool. In Net Promoter Score or NPS metric, the customer will be asked a question, “Will you recommend this company/product to others?” or “How do you likely recommend the product or company to your family and friends?”.
- Formulating effective customer experience strategies but with limitation to prevent abuse of promotions, discounts, freebies, and giveaways. Customers like sale and discount offers, and more so of free stuff.
- Improving your workforce values and skills. Hire the right people and set your expectations from the very beginning, and empower your employees by offering a competitive compensation package and incentives to increase productivity, effectiveness, and efficiency.
- Personalize your approach because the least thing a customer wants is to be treated like others. When sending customers emails, personalize the content but not too informal to give a touch of uniqueness. Follow-up with your customers even after purchasing such as sending a follow-up email of how they find your product or a short phone interview.
