Customer experience trends for 2021
Every year, digital experts and marketers make their predictions for 2021.
An adaptive approach to customer experience
According to Gartner, 66% of business owners expect that their business model will change in the next three years. Indeed, more companies focus on the customer's journey. They need to be more open to align their marketing and sales activities with their customer's success.
According to Steven Van Belleghem, Dutch thought leader in marketing and customer centricity, everything will be e-commerce. Western companies like Facebook, Instagram and YouTube will make it possible that you can buy easily from their social media channels. It's important that your company knows what this trend means for your e-commerce.
More focus on mobile experiences
In our last blog post, we already talked about the increased amount of visitors using their smartphone to search something online. So, more customers will continue to use their smartphone which means that businesses need to invest in this medium to keep pace with customer demand.
Digital channels to the next level
Steven also predicts that digital channels are moving to the next level. Before the pandemic, webinars used to be awkward with an out-dated look & feel. Now webinars are evolving to broadcast TV-quality; fantastic backgrounds, experienced speakers, a team in the background that makes sure that everything is going well and someone that moderates the chats. Even players like Netflix and BBC are doing everything to improve their channels: from online educational offerings to series that would turn into podcasts.
