CEM: The Customer is King, Not Content, and he's Switching Channels

Cross-channel marketing sounds simple enough; engage with your customers across different channels. Personalize your message; adapt it to your customers’ intentions, behavior and thoughts. Although in theory this sounds simple, in practice it’s nothing more than a revolution.

The challenge is that to truly do cross-channel marketing, the focus should be on the customer, not on your product or content. The customer should be the center point of attention, and organizations, processes and technology need to radically adapt to realize this.

An Overview of the Social Customer

We are all social customers. Since the beginning of modern day society, we have always shared our thoughts, opinions, likes, dislikes and criticisms about the brands that we love and the brands we hate. The difference today is that our voices and the conversations that we have with others travel well beyond the living room. They are now being amplified on the social web like never before.

The social customer interacts with business and brands differently based on their emotions and how they are feeling on a given day. One day they might be a collaborative customer, and the next day they might be with a competitor. Much of this depends on a brands reaction, or not. All social customers are different but here are a few ways to make some sense out of who they are and how they act.

Multichannel Commerce is Moving at a Fast Rate - Are You Truly Ready For It?

The world of multichannel commerce is a very fascinating one at the moment. Just like an old steam locomotive, the multichannel train has taken some time to gain speed, but now that it’s moving, there’s no stopping it.

Customer Experience Challenges: Why Maintaining an Outside-in Approach is Tougher than it Seems

With a growing number of companies and organizations striving to deliver superior customer experiences, “outside-in” is becoming a popular mantra. On the surface it seems obvious: organizations ought to put themselves in their customers’ shoes in order to understand how to best serve them. This appears especially straight-forward considering today’s advanced technology that allows organizations to track consumer preferences and communicate with them any time at any place. Yet if it’s really so easy, why do consumers continue to have frustrating interactions with companies that leave them feeling ambivalent at best or completely fed up at worst?

This Week: SDL, Adobe Lead in Customer Experience Management + Publishing for Tablets

The Forrester Wave: Web Content Management for Online Customer Experience (CXM) is out and while no vendor has all the necessary components of a CXM platform, SDL and Adobe lead the pack, with Sitecore, OpenText, Autonomy and Ektron close behind.

Oracle may not be leading in customer experience, but it has announced that WebCenter is now its primary suite for CXM (and it will include the recently acquired FatWire WEM platform). Sitecore strengthened its CXM solution with its own App Center for cloud-based services. And OpenText made another acquisition, not CXM related, adding more case management capabilities via Global 360.

We started a series on publishing for tablets this week and asked if your customers are app happy. Mobile is also the focus of our poll this month, which asks Is Mobile a High Priority for Your Customer Experience Strategy?.

Finally, our focus on Web Engagement (WEM) and multi-channel marketing provided expert insights such as: looking at the holistic digital platform, adding social networks to the mix and managing the experience, not the content.
