String 1: Customer Experience and Touchpoints
Customer experience is your customers’ comprehensive view of their experience with your business or brand. It’s the way they perceive their interactions with your firm. An effective and strategy ought to be useful, practical, and delightful from the customer’s point of view.
Each association a customer has with your business, from browsing through the website to talking to customer service or availing your product/service accounts to CX. Everything you do impacts your customers’ perception and their decision to keep coming back or not—so a great customer experience is the key to success.
Why worry about customer experience?
Customer experience plays a vital role in the market. A positive experience promotes loyalty which helps in maintaining the customers and boosts brand promotion. This is why you need to present a remarkable experience and make them want to keep doing business with you.
Customer centricity using CX:
Placing the customer at the center of business is vital. Obvious too, yet so many leaders forget about the customer perspective in meetings. A consumer-centric policy like this allows your employee corp to see everything from their point of view. When you align your company goals with the goals of the customer, expectations are met and very often exceeded. If the services are not customer-centric that would lead to the loss of a valuable customer.
•CX proactively engages customers:
CX goes beyond serving just as a survey and measurement tool. Businesses are always tuning in with CX. When it comes to service, with regards to your clients, there is a significant difference between reacting to their concerns, versus proactively contacting them to address their concerns through research. It’s two polar ends of the customer assistance spectrum. So you should ask yourself, which casts a better light on how you want your business to be perceived by your customers?
•Quick Response to critical feedback in real-time matters for better CX:
You can set up filters to flag survey responses in your touchpoint surveys. Good or bad. For instance, you receive an email alert when a customer recently had a bad experience. If such things go unnoticed, it could very likely make customers take their business elsewhere next time without you knowing why. With CX, you get a chance to follow up on negative and positive feedback shortly. Regular reviewing leads to CX improvement which thereby plays a vital role in business growth.

Loyalty programs are another important touchpoint that enterprises should be aware of. These programs strengthen your relationship with customers and turn them into lifelong advocates.
•In case of B2B, Subscription Renewals plays a vital role:
Customers need to renew their subscriptions to maintain consistent growth for your business which is why you must eliminate as much friction as possible from your renewal process. All in all, it should be a smooth process for an existing customer to stay a customer once their subscription has ended.
•In case of B2B, Customer On boarding should also be focus area:
Customer onboarding is a popular touchpoint for businesses because many customers abandon products shortly after buying them.

Both the scenarios result in churn, making it imperative for organizations to invest in viable onboarding programs. So customer onboarding needs to be planned properly and carried out.
