With a reopening plan in effect in Canada, summer is starting to turn around! Could this finally be the end? As we edge towards normalcy, businesses are starting to implement their long-awaited reopening plans.
We are moving into a very different world post-pandemic. We have seen an aggressive push towards technology and non-contact upgrades within every industry.
Change towards up-to-date technology is always a struggle for some businesses and requires an adjustment period. However, marrying the worlds of tech and customer service has become the expected and the new standard. In order for a business to succeed in this difficult time, it must become well-versed in digital communication.
Pre-pandemic, bringing relevance to your customers meant listening to their needs and then responding accordingly. We base future user behavior on interactions with existing customers, however, these days we have to go above and beyond and make the user journey a beautiful and fantastic experience.
Here are some tips to get you there:
Increase customer engagement
"Customer experience is about so much more than just the sales journey."
In order to anticipate the real needs of your customers, you need to find new ways to maintain a healthy interaction with them and continuously offer excellent support for each stage of the process.
Test and implement digital strategies
The better the engagement, the happier the customers are. Improve engagement by being active on different channels. Ask for reviews, connect with a weekly/monthly newsletter, send special birthday wishes and offers. You need to build a brand and that requires you to offer a unique and exclusive experience. This could include your online presence, a rewards/loyalty program, getting involved with different causes, etc.
Grow a niche
Find the unique benefit of your product – make sure it is impactful. Narrow down a specific group that you think experiences the main issue your product/service can solve better than anything on the market.
You may already be familiar with these pointers as a business owner. However, we need to look at the end of the pandemic as a new beginning. Many things will change when this pandemic is over: customer experience, advertising, storefront, digital sales, interaction, and sales journey.
