Customer engagement is a mindset. Not only a case for a single customer service department. It’s not like only this department explicitly cares for customers, right? Engagement is something that matters to all employees. 

With this, you can still really make a difference. Especially when products and services are almost exchangeable. By investing in customer engagement, you perform clearly better and enjoy more customer loyalty. Research has shown this time and time again. Extreme customer orientation and service are the focus point of every employee. With constant attention to personal and meaningful customer relations.
 

Extreme customer orientation

When was the last time you offered your customer a memorable experience? A surprise at exactly the right time, a proactive Whatsapp to take away his concerns, a direct question to further improve your service? Distinctive customer experiences turn loyal customers into ambassadors for your organisation. It’s clear that customers continue to ask more from organisations. They expect you to know their needs and provide them proactively with personally relevant information. If you want to be successful, you listen to the signals. You are not focused only on higher productivity, lower costs and more short-term sales, but you choose a well-thought customer-driven strategy as well as sustainable relations. Not only with customers, but also with suppliers, other stakeholders and their environment.

Digitally connected

In this customer engagement era, everybody and everything is constantly digitally connected. Cars, machines, implantable technology, … even clothes share data through smart sensors, cameras and software. Your online footprint provides a wealth of algorithms. Accessibility means you can analyze them and make accurate predictions. With the right service at the right time as a result. 
In short: maximum personalisation at every individual customer experience. When this is already business as usual with Amazon and Netflix, customers also expect that from their bank, insurance company, retailer, supplier or any other organisation. And for direct assistance chatbots and virtual assistants are stand-by. For various questions, an overnight delivery, a health check, you name it.
