Digital customer engagement is the art, science, and technologies involved in optimizing the physical and virtual interactions and transactions with prospects, customers, and other valuable stakeholders. Innovative technologies like big data analytics, chatbots, guided self-service, augmented and virtual reality, and IVR (interactive voice response) are used to elevate and enhance the digital customer engagement and overall customer experience transformation.

Let’s look at some of the best practices and concepts used by leaders in the digital space to foster digital customer engagement and delighting thru exceptional customer experience.

Components of Digital Customer Engagement:

Data Analytics:

Most companies have a treasure trove of customer data. The internal data combined with external data streams constitutes the classic big data. Thru analytics and data mining corporations and unlock the mysteries of customer needs, wants and desires and be able to glean insights into how to make the future state of customer engagement and experience better.

Customer Personas:

Understanding customers is a complex science and rather an incredible art. Data gleaned from interactions, transactions, profiles, preferences, satisfiers and dissatisfiers and analyzed thru data analytics can form the basis for generating customer personas that span a rich tapestry of human behaviors encapsulated into a few examples. It is no longer about Betsy, 35, mother of two, and an HR head, but deeper and broader analysis of the profile.

Digital customer engagement is the art, science, and technologies involved in optimizing the physical and virtual interactions and transactions with prospects, customers, and other valuable stakeholders.

Customer Journeys:

Customer journeys are the process thru which various personas go thru the phases of research, the preliminary choice set, decision making, actual purchase, post-purchase, and usage. The customer journeys capture the nuances of these interactions in resplendent detail and vivid color.

Personalization:

Personalization is the art of making each client feel unique and crafting content, communications and commerce interactions in a way that makes it personal and extraordinary.

Relationships:

Touch point Optimization was the holy grail in the past. However, today, while touch point communication improvement is necessary, but it cannot be at the cost of overall relationship optimization. It is the classic case of global optimization even at the expense of some local sub-optimization.

Iterative Refinement of End-to-End Experience:

Defining the experience and enabling it thru a series of technologies is a start, not the end of the digital customer engagement and experience transformation. Data analytics should provide the basis to tweak, change and iteratively refine these experiences – both in the virtual and digital realm.

Remember, digital customer engagement needs to be driven as a new paradigm, not just automating of the physical processes into digital ones. Uber did not become what it is because it just digitized the physical pattern of calling a cab. Rethink! Reimagine! Re-Architect!

To achieve this, you will need a digital customer experience strategy and a transformation roadmap.

Product FAQs:

Can I see a Sample Deliverable?

We are sorry, but we cannot send or show sample deliverables. There are two reasons: A) The deliverables are our intellectual property, and we cannot share the same. B) While you may be a genuine buyer, our experience in the past has not been great with too many browsers and not many buyers. We believe the depth of the information in the product description and the snippets we provide are sufficient to understand the scope and quality of our products.

When can I access my deliverables?

We process each transaction manually and hence, processing a deliverable may take anywhere from a few minutes to up to a day. The reason is to ensure appropriate licensing and also validating the deliverables.

Where can I access my deliverables?

Your best bet is to log in to the portal and download the products from the included links. The links do not expire.

Are there any restrictions on Downloads?

Yes. You can only download the products three times. We believe that is sufficient for any genuine usage situation. Of course, once you download, you can save electronic copies to your computer or a cloud drive.

Can I share or sell the deliverables with anyone?

You can share the deliverables within a company for proper use. You cannot share the deliverables outside your company. Selling or giving away free is prohibited, as well.

Can we talk to you on the phone?

Not generally. Compared to our professional services fee, the price of our products is a fraction of what we charge for custom work. Hence, our business model does not support pre-sales support.

Do you offer orientation or support to understand and use your deliverables?

Yes, for a separate fee. You can hire our consultants for remote help and in some cases for onsite assistance. Please Contact Us.
