What is Customer Centric Marketing? 

Customer-centric marketing is a strategy that places the customer at the center of marketing design and delivery. It goes beyond providing excellent customer service, and offering a customer-oriented approach throughout the entire purchasing process – from the design and development of products, through marketing communications and promotional campaigns, to post-purchase customer care and service.

So why are we hammering on this? Let’s see what the data says…

In NICE’s 2022 Digital-First Customer Experience Report, a broad range of consumers and senior decision-makers from the U.S. and U.K. were surveyed. The study aimed to gauge their perspectives on the efficacy of a digital-first customer journey and whether businesses are truly meeting customer expectations. The findings underscore the significant impact of these disconnects on brand loyalty – a staggering 57% of customers will sever ties with a brand following one or two negative experiences.

The report identifies some of the most significant discrepancies as follows:

  1. Self-service: While 53% of businesses believe their customers are highly satisfied with their self-service offerings, a mere 15% of consumers concur.
  2. Options: A substantial 81% of consumers are seeking more self-service options. In contrast, 40% of businesses believe their existing options are sufficient.
  3. Search: Businesses seem to underestimate the importance of search engines, with only 15% believing that Google is their consumers’ starting point. However, the reality is that 46% of consumers kick off their journeys with a search.
  4. Intelligent Offerings: A significant 36% of consumers desire smarter self-service, but only 11% of businesses consider this a priority.
  5. Chat: More than half (52%) of consumers identify chat as their preferred digital offering, but only 31% of businesses currently offer it

The fact that more than half of consumers may abandon a brand after only one or two negative experiences is a clear indication that businesses need to align more closely with their customers’ needs and desires. Whether it’s self-service, search, intelligent offerings, or chat services, your business needs to prioritize and respond effectively to these demands.
