What’s The Real ROI When Investing in CX?

Blog
22nd August 2016

It’s clear that the experience a customer has when engaging with a brand shapes their perception of that company. This has become an extremely important measure of business success as a consistently good customer experience is directly correlated with positive business outcomes.

But when planning the budget for new customer experience initiatives it is helpful to be able to estimate just how much effect those efforts will have. What’s the Return on Investment (ROI) of spending more on improving the customer experience? A new study detailed in ZDNet attempts to explain the real business value of investing in the customer experience. Some of their highlighted findings were:

After presenting the data featuring both opportunities and challenges the report author concludes: “In this day and age, can anyone seriously question the importance of developing relationships with customers that lead to engagement?”

With supporting statistics like this, it’s clear that this conclusion is correct. How can any executive ignore the benefits that a focus on CX brings? Yes, there are challenges with technology systems, skills, and data, but by placing the CX at the heart of your corporate vision these other business areas can approach the problems in a coordinated way.

What do you think of the ZDNet approach to measuring the ROI of CX? Can you add more? Leave a comment here or get in touch via my LinkedIn.
