B2B Brand-Ism #11: Brands that Care More Win More.

The new battle for customers is not being waged on pricing and features alone. For today’s B2B brands, it’s all about Customer Experience. Customer experience can literally make or break an organization. One bad customer experience can set off a spark, igniting fires online and offline that expend time, money and mental energy to put out. Smart organizations are investing in customer-centric brand building and customer experience strategies and tactics to not only win more business, but ensure that the business they have does not drift off to the competition.

A great customer experience can only be delivered from a brand that truly “cares” about its customers. Nobody is a number. Nobody feels like an afterthought. It’s high touch love from start to finish; and this energy must permeate every touchpoint that the brand delivers.

Here are a few stats to get you energized about improving your brand’s customer experience, if you’re not working on it already:

  • 95% of buyers talk about poor customer service experiences with other people. (American Express)
  • 40% of customers begin purchasing from a competitor because of their reputation for great customer service. (Zendesk)
  • Companies that excel at customer experience grow revenues 4-8% above the market. (Bain and Company)
  • 66% of buyers say they are likely to switch brands if they are treated like a number instead of an individual. (Salesforce)
