This report is an attempt to understand what marketing leaders view as their top issues with regard to corporate websites and broader digital presences, and to identify their focus areas today and over the next 12 months. The results point to a desire for marketers to optimise the customer experience across every touchpoint. That aim is commendable but, as our research makes clear, there are serious obstacles along the way.
Everybody in marketing is chasing today’s consumers as they hop from channel to channel on their digitally empowered customer journeys. Some marketers are more successful than others. Brands with integrated omnichannel touchpoints can let customers start researching a product on their laptop, receive related advertising on social, ask questions on chat, make the purchase on their phone, and pick up the product at their nearest store.
The digital marketplace presents new challenges for marketers, yet provides the perfect canvas for creating personalized, relevant communications and developing deep relationships with customers based on ongoing interactions.
This paper explores what customer “moments of truth” mean, and how understanding those moments of truth along the customer journey enables marketers to deliver the personalized, real-time responses that customers crave. You’ll also learn best practices on how customer experience optimization and digital marketing optimization can help marketers capitalize on moments of truth.
