Customer relations are not limited to momentary purchases of products or services. Moreover, customer relations involve a journey in which it is essential to make sure that all points of contact between the company and consumer are pleasant, in line with the principles of the Customer Experience. For this to occur, certain planning strategies must be followed:
Firstly, you need to know the profile of the brand’s customers. Knowing who your customers are is essential to your company’s CX. Are they young people just starting out in their careers or financially established adults, for example? The best way to understand who your customers are is to create personas to help identify characteristics of the model consumer. This makes it easier to develop all other steps in the journey.
Don’t forget the customer
Using personas is not a justification for setting aside those who matter most: your customers. You need to speak with customers and, more importantly, take an interest in what they have to say. Conversation is a crucial element in developing solutions for your product or service based on what it is actually used for.
Once you have understood who your customers are and what their needs are, it’s time to achieve your company’s goal and meet consumer expectations in relation to the service provided. This is why you must pay careful attention to actually providing people with a pleasant experience — and this involves multiple factors including convenience and practicality at the time of purchase, as well as the provision of a quality and personal service.
