Put customer experience at the heart of your business

Blog
29th December 2017

Marketing company Aptaris published a very interesting list of holiday trends in retail, with a focus on customer experience (CX) being at the heart of everything that retailers should be planning for this time of year.

It may feel like damage control rather than a grand strategy, but when the holiday rush is on, these basics such as getting the signs right, make an enormous difference to the overall customer experience. With so much competition in retail, it makes good business sense to create loyalty by carefully managing the customer experience during the holiday period. Let me know your thoughts by leaving a comment here, or get in touch on LinkedIn.
