To improve the customer experience effectively, knowing the customer is key. Knowing the customer helps in connecting your customer experience to business results.

An excellent customer experience delivers better business and marketing outcomes but its objectives are not primarily anchored in typical marketing measures. Customer experience impact awareness, website traffic and conversion rate but its main goal is to get customers to buy more, increase brand reputation and thus loyalty. Getting the customer experience right requires fresh and innovative thinking through data analysis, collaborative and cross functional approach.

Customer experience investments payoff too. According to research from Sitecore and Avanade, the ROI on customer experience investments is 19%1.

Businesses tend to associate customer experience to solely improving customer service. Customer experience is a lot more than customer service. While Customer service is limited to each interaction, customer experience is never about a single purchase process. Customer experience is about the bigger picture: It includes all the interactions with the customer including the experience before and after the interactions. It is about building customer loyalty by truly engaging with your customer, understanding them and empowering your site to do it through personalization.

For instance, a health insurance company that operated in New York only, used a simplified plan design and consumer tools to personalize. Within one year they got 16,0002 consumers in New York to choose from the company’s various insurance plans.

Here are the 5 steps to building a personalized customer experience on your ecommerce site

Customer Research

It is the process of identifying/ finding the preferences, motivations and buying behaviour of the targeted customer.

Mental Modeling

Mental modelling is a hypothesized representation of what happens in the real world, the intuitive relationship between cognition, reasoning and decision making. It also helps to take into account distinct demographic biases and preference which can be harnessed to personalize accordingly their customer experience.
