Driving Digital Experience is an important module in the CIM Diploma in Professional Marketing and a topic which can be learned and continuously improved by all marketers.
Whether you are marketing for a brand, company, start-up or yourself, you’ll be giving a customer experience. If you wish to drive, proactively, the experience and especially as you can inherently control all elements of your customers’ digital experience, this is a chance to consider a multitude of angles, channels, choices and perspectives. By doing this you stand a chance of ensuring your customer experience is as good as it might be and provides meaningful interaction and potentially a long term, sustainable relationship for all stakeholders.
Here is a checklist of outputs from a discussion with my students, that should help you to uncover vital elements to continuously improve the experience you provide:
Authenticity, Honesty, Choice – all delivered with an appropriate tone of voice
Planning, Customer Journey, Uniqueness, Packages of Services and Products, Inspire Learning – focused on your unique sales proposition
Fundamentals of Experience
Personalisation, Individuality, Familiarity, Anticipation, (Un)Predicability, Memorability, Subjectivity – value provided against customers’ perceptions and deep rooted assumptions
Channels and Content
Head focused (logical and objective), Heart focused (emotional and subjective), Sound, Sight, Touch – delivered by audio, video, imagery and words
Cultural Sensitivities, Use of Humour, Economic Value (of products and services), Timeliness
