80% of customers say that experience is just as important as a product or service.

Customer Experience Matters

Customer experience is your customer’s perception of your company based on their interactions with your brand across every stage of the customer journey. A company that provides positive experiences generates loyalty, which in turn motivates customers to make frequent purchases, share their pleasant experience with others, and easily forgive a company when it faces shortcomings. As customer loyalty strengthens, company to customer relationships result in increased profitability for your company.

Elements of
Customer Experience

Half of what you sell is the experience you create. Customer experience (CX) is the product of an interaction between an organization and a customer over the duration of their relationship. In other words, how customers feel about interacting with your company and the perception they have of your band. While all three of these elements affects customer loyalty behaviors, an improvement in the emotional element provides the biggest lift.

3 Key Elements to
Customer Experience:

Success: Are they able to do the things that they want to do?
Effort: How easy or hard is it to do the thing they want to do?
Emotion: How did they feel about it?

Drives Revenue

A study evaluating the impact of Customer Experience improvement over a three-year period for companies with $1 billion in annual revenues in 20 different industries shows how loyalty differs between the consumers who gave companies very poor to very good customer experience ratings.

On average, companies can gain $775 million over three years by improving the experience they deliver to customers, that’s almost 78% increase! How can CX and loyalty grow revenue in such a significant way?

Even if you are not a billion dollar company you can have revenue increase based on improved customer experience. 67% of customers say they’ll spend more for a great experience. The traditional model of solely owning a market with the product offering has become archaic. In this era of business, you will rarely have the lowest price or even the best product. But as a company, your customer experience can be unique and will influence customers to choose you over your competitors.

Positive Experience
Drives Publicity

Brand reputations are built on the basis of customer experience. A growing number of these experiences happen on social media, where companies are gaining, or losing, customers with every interaction. This is demonstrated in the 40% of customers saying that they are willing to spend more with a brand that responds to their needs and concerns. When your brand provides a positive experience you are likely to get 9x more word of mouth publicity from your customers.

Companies are now becoming customer experience standouts by adopting the mindset that CX = PR. After all, garnering attention, action, and advocacy are the mainstays of public relations, and when intertwined with customer experience, it thrills customers in a way that drives loyalty, reputation, and sales.

The Customer
Experience Gap

This means 92% of brands are not paying enough attention to the experiences they offer. Not having an understanding of what a consumers expectations are is like selling a car without a steering wheel - it won’t get you where you need to be.


It is impossible to provide a positive experience if you don’t know what your customers want, need, and expect from your brand. To maximize results on each touchpoint interaction, brands must get the data first. Monitoring online behavior is a great way to become aware of the discussions surrounding your brand beyond the mentions and hashtags. Putting your ear to the ground across the web with social listening solutions provides brands with a wealth of valuable insights.

Modern expectations to listen for:
Treat me like a human
Respond to me quickly
Be consistent across channels
Tell me what you stand for
Speak about my passion/pain
Give me value for privacy data
Reward me value for loyalty

“Expectations of customer experience are made across the spectrum of every company that your customer is doing business with. If you hope to grow, improve retention, and build advocates, you need to surpass the CX of every brand they’re working with.”

The Customer
Experience Journey

The customer experience journey is shaped by the many different interactions your customers will experience with your brand. Using specific customer touchpoints, you can guide your customers through their experience journey from start to finish. A touchpoint is any interaction that can positively or negatively impact the way that customers feel about a service, product, or brand. To be successful, brands need to provide positive experiences in each selected touchpoint of the customer journey. For example, providing an informative, visually pleasing, and easy to navigate website will assist your customers in making the decision to contact or interact with your company, thus moving them along the customer experience journey. Brands that focus on creating top-notch experiences across all touchpoints will see impactful results as they help their customers along their buyer journey.
