Our team have worked hard in creating our free, downloadable ebook “Is your Business Ready for the Future of Customer Support”, which you can download here!
We wanted to share an excerpt with you, discussing the importance of social proof when it comes to ensuring the success of your business.

Customer reviews create 'social proof', a phenomenon which suggests people are influenced by those around them. Friends and family, industry experts and influencers, or just people on the internet. Social proof can push customers who are on the fence about making a purchase, or are considering alternatives. Forms of social proof,  include partnerships and influencer campaigns, however customer reviews seem to be the most influential.

It is rare, these days, to make a purchase without checking out the product info, and any reviews listed below. Most e-commerce websites now have  multiple testimonials right there on their homepage, to highlight the experience of previous customers. 

When considering a purchase, people want first-hand perspectives from other people just like them. While a famous influencer might catch their attention, experiences from peers are also important if you want to convince them to buy. 

Depending on the industry your business is in, customer reviews might be especially important because they help offset a generally negative view of certain industries.

Give your customers a great experience, and they will:

  • Buy more
  • Become brand loyal  
  • Share their experience with friends, family and peers 

Thus, becoming a vital element for the growth of your business. 

Customer expectations have changed. With new technology, speed  and efficiency are at the top of the list. 

This technology also sets a higher expectation for interactions with a business. Speed is not the be all and end all, now how you make a customer feel can have a huge impact on their likelihood to return and recommend. Technologies and improvements that increase speed, convenience, friendliness and knowledge— more  frequent expectations of consumers—are openings for companies to improve how people engage and spend with your brand. Customers generate revenue. 

Employees drive the experience. Reduce friction for consumers and empower employees to drive customer satisfaction. 

Among surveyed customers, 73% agree that experience is an important factor in their purchasing decisions, coming closely behind price and quality. It has also been found that customers are willing to pay more for a great experience.
