Because online customer experiences are in high demand, brands have to find ways to stand out from their competitors who are trying to do the same thing. To do this, brands need to prioritize a great user experience by eliminating as much friction as possible from digital channels. This means having expedited purchasing processes, one-click sign-ups and pre-filled forms. Qualitative research methods, like online focus groups, are also important for gathering customer sentiment and firsthand knowledge on what they value in an experience, helping to build a better one.

MarTech QnA with the Expert
As a marketing team, how do you know the emails and SMS messages you send will be relevant to each recipient? Will people be receptive to the communications, or will they opt out? What about your website, mobile wallet offers, and social ads – will they resonate with each customer’s interests, desires, or values? How can you be sure?
The only way to know is to ask. Customers will freely opt to share their preferences, interests and other zero-party data with a brand, in exchange for a more personalized experience. Yelp, for example, asks people for their food, dietary, and lifestyle preferences. When a user tells Yelp that they’re a vegetarian, Yelp immediately provides them with vegetarian-friendly recommendations rather than steakhouses. –Wendell Lansford, Co-founder at Wyng
