We often hear that customer engagement is important but why should we be listening instead of scrolling up on our newsfeeds?
According to global leaders in research and analytics, Gallup, emotions affect our overall decision-making even more so than rational thinking and objective data.
In fact, they found, that ‘emotional factors comprise up to 70% of economic decision-making’ and ‘companies that apply the principles of behavioural economics effectively, can outperform their peers by 85% in sales growth and more than 25% in gross margin’.
You may think that emotive led strategies are hogwash, but you will be doing more harm than good to your customers if you completely ignore it. The simple fact is that customers want to engage. They want meaningful relationships with companies. They want to feel like their needs are being met, desires proactively responded too, and they want those instant connections.
Gone are the cold-calling days, hard-push marketing and sale-driven approaches. Customer engagement is at it’s highest and we should be embracing the change with a tea and a biscuit, not with a headset.
