When people throw around the term customer experience, what are they really talking about? They’re talking about the experience that customers go through when interacting with your brand. It is not just a single moment, but rather a series of interaction in their customer journey.
The cumulative impact of these experiences defines how they feel and how they perceive the brand is delivering on their promise.
How do measure customer experience? One of the easiest ways is to simply ask questions such as how likely are you to recommend the product, service or brand or how easy is it to do business with this brand?
When should you ask the questions? There are two different metrics, transactional and relational. The first measures opinions at the moment of service and the other is a more global perception of your brand. The information gathered will be very different. Somebody in the heat of the moment is going to feel one way but with the perspective of two years of working with you, may think differently.
