Key takeaways from these customer experience statistics.

Customer retention is king.

Although many businesses focus on customer acquisition, customer retention is a huge profit driver.

The key takeaway here is that businesses that fail to work out which customers are their most valuable will be at a competitive disadvantage. Focus on retention to see major impacts to your business.

Make sure your website is mobile-friendly.

With a large majority of consumers using their smartphones for online browsing, websites must be optimized for mobile devices. If they’re not, brands risk customer abandonment.

Great customer experience is key to customer trust and loyalty.

Quality customer experiences are essential for brand building, especially in the age of social media where you’re only as good as your last mistake. Customer expectations continue to rise but so should customer satisfaction with their brands if they want to keep customers coming back for more. As you build customer trust, retention will grow. 

Provide a great customer experience across multiple channels.

It’s no longer enough to just have a website and brick-and-mortar store. Customers expect a seamless customer experience that spans across all channels – from social media to customer support. Meeting customer needs (and exceeding their expectations) in every interaction is the key to customer loyalty.

Pay attention to customer complaints.

Customer complaints are a valuable source of feedback, but they’re also an opportunity for companies to show that they care about customers and their experience.

Companies that ignore customer complaints (or worse, make them feel like they’re not important) only alienate dissatisfied customers even more.
