A Data-Centric Approach Will Lead To Customer Centricity

This article was originally posted on BigData-Startups.  

A few years ago, with the rise of social media, many organisations thought that social media was the Holy Grail in marketing. Social media would solve all problems and customers would become the centre of each organisation. While social media has absolutely enabled customers to interact easier, better, faster and more-often with organisations and it has enabled organisations to know more about their customers, it has not resulted in truly customer-centric organisations. For that, one important aspect was missing: the capability of combining and analysing all data that was created during those interactions and linking it with other data within organisations.

How to efficiently implement an online conversion channel

An online conversion channel is the path that a customer follows to make an online purchase. This path might go from a search engine to a home page to a checkout window or it might proceed in numerous other ways. Regardless of how exactly an online conversion channel works, the better this procedure, the more revenue it will bring to your website.

Unlike in the offline world, on the Internet it is difficult to convert customers potentially interested in your products because you cannot count on face-to-face sellers that spend time attending to customers’ last-minute uncertainties and questions in order to help them decide whether or not to buy your services/products.

Here are the three most important of these aspects:

If you ask anyone in a service related or consumer field, they will tell you how unhappy the phrase “the customer is always right” makes them.  Luckily, in the tech realm, the customer does not always have to be right, but they always have to be happy.
