Attention, Students: Put Your Laptops Away

Attention, Students: Put Your Laptops Away | Customer Engagement | Scoop.it
Researchers Pam Mueller and Daniel M. Oppenheimer found that students remember more via taking notes longhand rather than on a laptop. It has to do with what happens when you're forced to slow down.
sharon lewis's insight:

Everything old is new again.....We type faster than we write. Hence the theory is that we can type notes that are more verbatim to the text while we will write notes that include more summarization of the materials.  Studies show that the hand-written note has more internal memory power. 

For me, I like the ability to edit my typed notes and such edits reflect the summarization and insights of the information. It also allows me to review the data multiple times. How do yo best take notes?

Loyalty reprogrammed | Customer Engagement | Scoop.it
Customer loyalty has become ever more tenuous. Marketers need to rethink their approach to building and sustaining loyaltyand data will hemp them do it.

sharon lewis's insight:

Loyalty Programs: Knowing what reward is most desirable to a customer is not intuitive. Smart data analytics help get the offers closer to the mark. Rewards that are relevant and come with a high perceived value score well.

That being said, there is a lot of room for testing and creativity as “The 2011 Colloquy Loyalty Census counted more than two billion loyalty memberships in the United States, or 18 programs per household. That's double the numbers that were on the books in 2000.” 

Which programs are you using?

Darcy Bevelacqua's insight:

Customer Experience is really understanding things from your customer's point of view. Not only what they do, but why they do it. understanding requires empathy, insights ( knowing why and why not and what else), and prototyping. The prototyping lets you confirm that what you think you are fixing is actually what the customer wanted and doesn't reflect how the organization thinks the customer would want things to be done.

3 essential #CX design skills:


Empathy:

 

In the design process empathy is the ability of taking the perspective of the customer and feeling with them as they experience services.

 

Insight:

 

Arriving at insights is a creative process that combines empathic observations (I saw this) with the experience (I know this) of the designers.

 

Prototyping:

 

Prototypes are visualised service proposals that make their value concrete in a form or another.


Apple stores are a perfect example. Which other brands are capitalizing on customer experience design recently?

Just as companies are now including "technology company" in the way they define themselves, this article suggests that leading  companies are also media companies; "Really stand-out companies have full YouTube channels of how-to content in addition to blogs and other media.

Eric_Determined / Eric Silverstein's curator insight, September 3, 2015 1:29 AM

Would you agree that the lines are blurring between B2B and B2C #CX?


"Today's CMOs must go beyond just customer acquisition to unite all customer interactions into a common consistent experience. Why now? Because B2B customers are increasingly wearing their B2C hats to the office, expecting to find Amazon-like experiences that will make or break how they view your brand.

 

In the new post-digital world, your brand is now defined as much by what your customers say about their relationship with you as what you say about yourself.

 

Success will hinge on an aligned organization that can pivot toward customer obsession, where value is built around the customer, rather than a singular channel or product."

Darcy Bevelacqua's curator insight, September 4, 2015 10:57 AM

Understanding the customer experience requires you to listen to your customers, identify what is important to them and needs improvement, and then prioritize which ones you will focus on first, second and third. Finally you need a team of IT, Marketing, Sales, Serivce and Operations folks to develop the "right" solution for your brand. Then impelment , measure and continue to improve.

From multichannel to omnichannel

From multichannel to omnichannel | Customer Engagement | Scoop.it
Companies are still struggling to integrate the data and processes associated with a multichannel approach. Omnichannel customer experience is about making that a reality.

Via Eric_Determined / Eric Silverstein
Darcy Bevelacqua's insight:

Enhancing the #customer experience requires you employ #customer journey maps  and place the customer at the center of what you design. Enablement requires data integration, customer identity management and understanding #customer needs and objectives at each step in the process. Be sure to continuously collect customer feedback through #VOC and #VOE (voice of employee) data collection to help identify the #pain points. 

Delivering the right #customer experience through the right channel  (mobile, web, call center etc) will assure you are increasing #customer satisfaction, #customer retention and # increased spending.

Eric_Determined / Eric Silverstein's curator insight, August 25, 2015 4:19 AM

"Interaction across channels is encouraged and required to drive the optimal #customer #journeys and #experiences. These are not achieved by good intentions; they are achieved by design. To achieve the optimal #omnichannel customer experience, employ customer journey maps and approaches that place the customer in the center of your customer experience design (e.g., design thinking, #VOC programs) or in other words: Have the customer's experience built into each step in the process. Metrics now include the following:

  • Customer repeat purchases
  • Customer retention
  • Customer satisfaction"

Creating a successful customer experience requires connecting the dots between the various channels and platforms. A wholistic experience requires 360 view of the customer, omnichannel approach across the touchpoints, and understanding of the customer journey through mapping(what they want to accomplish by personae) and an organizational transformation.

Data governance, alongside of the customer value proposition have always been the most difficult and the most important components of any engagement or loyalty program. As one example in the article suggests: "If a rather disheveled 20-something is travelling economy, it would be helpful for the airline to know that this is in fact the daughter of a high net-worth individual."
