In a Digital-First World, Ignite Moments Reimagine Omnichannel Journeys from Customer’s Experience

In a Digital-First World, Ignite Moments Reimagine Omnichannel Journeys from Customer’s Experience

Try a simple exercise the next time you plan your CX, marketing, service, and commerce strategies. Add an apostrophe “s” to make customer experience possessive. It’s really about the “customer’s” experience that counts for everything. And as a result, that perspective will change the way you design your omnichannel strategy and your customer’s journey at the edge. It will center how you design touchpoints, engagement, and shape experiences from a position of empathy. I call this designing for #Ignitemoments. I…

Introducing #IgniteMoments: Customers Experience So Much Darkness in Their Journey, Optimize Digital Customer Experiences to Deliver the Light

Today’s customer journey is built upon decades of legacy infrastructure. Even with modernization, the relationship between digital and physical touch points are often disjointed, transactional, and in many cases, they just feel outdated. When I was asked to keynote DEEPCRAWL Live and share my ideas for a new future in marketing and search, I jumped at the opportunity. I had so much to share. In particular, I was anxious to preview the “Ignite Moment,” the moment that immediately follows micro-moments and…

Humanizing CX: Shifting from Customer Experience to the Customer’s Experience

Humanizing CX: Shifting from Customer Experience to the Customer’s Experience

Customer experience is powerful because it consists of two important ingredients, 1) people and 2) emotions. When we talk about CX as a matter of purpose and strategy, this is exactly where the phrases “put customers at the center of our business” and becoming “customer-centric” can and should come to life. But honestly, we don’t really design for people or emotions today. We design for what we think of as customer intent and in turn, invest in touchpoints, conversions, transactions…
