How to craft conversation oriented customer experience online?
Sam has recently started a consultancy business.
But, he is upset about not getting a proper response from the audience he was targeting.
He is confused and is struggling to achieve the desired growth for his business like every other business owner.
The common goal shared by every business owner cannot be fulfilled without focusing on customer experience.
There are no other means through which businesses can grow more effectively.
Several businesses think of customer experience with just one motive. But it actually offers two excellent outcomes:
1) Customer Retention
2) Customer Acquisition.
Research from Forrester and Adobe states that the businesses that really invest energy and resources into their customer experience generate a 1.7x higher retention rate over businesses that do not.
The reason this works is that if you focus on experience, the customers will automatically stay with you longer and stay loyal to your brand. This will allow them to be benefitted from an increase in their lifetime value (LTV).
Apple is a pure example for the above.
When it comes to customer experience, retention is the benefit that is often talked about. But we believe, the acquisition is the other side of the coin.
The businesses which focus on their customer experience have 1.9x higher return-on-spend than other businesses (Source).
So, the companies that make the customer experience as the centre point of their business get to keep the customers that they have earned but also attract almost twice the number of customers they otherwise would have attracted.
A lot of customer experience basically is rooted in making things great. So, when things are about enhancing the overall content of your consumer, eradicating difficulties, etc., working to deliver a valuable experience for your customers is a laudable objective.
The constant refinement of the customer experience intensifies the competency of the business and, consequently, your acquisition and retention purposes.
Our expertise and experience say that proficiency seldom stimulates conversations. No one recommends the brands that they do not like. Instead, people recommend the businesses or brands where they are treated well.
The wish to find the most suitable methods and support the leader are impulses and seem great on paper. However, in reality, these methods get you zero customer conversations.
The most trustworthy way to achieve is to sketch a remarkable customer experience that B2B or B2C clients do not expect. People are interested to talk about offbeat things and overlook the average. If you wish your clients to spread word of mouth about your business and if you want the client experience to be the greatest thing to draw in your customers, you need to provide them something fascinating to discuss.

Gaining your customer’s trust is imperative for the trigger
People tell the stories which they trust. The experiences which seem too good to be true create mistrust. Just as you can’t compare wonder and delight, doing something that blows expectations will not get you a sustainable conversation. So your trigger or push for your customers that makes them talk about you needs to be reasonable enough to trust.
The trigger must be relevant
Unless you are a giant in the business, doing irrelevant stuff is not going to attract anyone towards your business. Your customer experience option needs to make sense related to your brand to create conversation. This is the reason why a client talking about tasty street food to make connection generates a lot of reviews. The trigger is just simple. A person who has enjoyed the tasty street food at a place where he gets free sidedish makes the trigger a great story.
