Impact You Episode 09 | Listening to the Voice of Your Customer – Part One w/ Tony Bodoh
In today’s market products themselves are commodities and it is difficult for businesses to distinguish themselves. It is no longer about the transaction but rather the ongoing conversations with your customer that identify their unique needs and desires. Those needs will translate to buying decisions which, if your business understands, can tweak, modify or provide the specific services to them.
How can leaders can get started developing a Customer Experience focus?
- Notice what you are noticing – listen to what is being said by customers and employees. What adjectives are coming up over and over? Those adjectives reveal the mindset of your employees and customers.
- Clarify the vision of the experience you want to evoke with your customers. Tony includes a practical exercise you can use is to help you get started immediately.
- Find ways to understand the behavior of your customers – sales, how long since their last purchase, buying patterns, the cycle of your product or service (if applicable). Note: this does not require a major investment.
- Start with what you can analyze today. Various methods are available to garner customer feedback including surveys, call center notes, or as simple as an on-site capture of daily customer interactions and purchases.
Impact You Episode 11 | Voice of the Customer Series – Part Two w/ Tony Bodoh
Customers reveal their core needs and desires to our business through a hidden language. There are cues, likes and dislikes that influence their buying behavior. When companies understand this language, they can create a unique customer experience the competition cannot replicate. And a new level of loyalty follows.
Customer feedback will likely reveal both short and long term issues to address. Businesses will gain credibility when they respond quickly to those issues that are easy fixes or changes. For more complex issues a more strategic approach must be used to determine how those issues can be addressed. In addition, it’s important for business leaders to listen to the feedback from the perspective of the customer – not from the business itself.
Key Ideas from our 2nd conversation with Tony:
- Emotions dictate how your customers think about their impressions of your service experience.
- There is no set formula for the amount of data a business needs before taking action. Each point of feedback must be considered in context to the business.
- For businesses starting with this process, read every piece of feedback to gain perspective on your customer’s impressions.
- The research process typically follows a 2-hour, 2-day, 2-week and 2-week timeframes depending on how in-depth you want to understand what your customers think and feel.
- Transformational success in your business will often involve a change in both thinking and actions of every person on your team.
- A business leader must be very clear on the metric he wants to move forward to gain the best ROI from any customer experience initiative. Start with the end in mind.
Impact You Episode 13 | Voice of the Customer Series – Part Three w/ Tony Bodoh
Today’s focus helps leaders learn how to help your team (employees) go beyond customer service. In today’s marketplace, customer service is not enough. A remarkable experience must occur and to accomplish this you must ensure the employee and customer experience are linked together.
Key ideas from our 3rd conversation with Tony:
- Communicate your Vision to the team by identifying specifically what it is your want your customers to experience. Identify the emotions you want customers to have then equip the team to evoke those emotions that in turn impact new buying behaviors.
- If you want your customers to engage the way you want them to your employees must have a similar experience with the organization as well (ie: have used the product or services you provide, know what it feels like to be a customer).
- The employee’s mindset determines what the employee will do for the customer. If they think they can resolve an issue, they will do everything they can to do so. If they believe it’s hopeless, they will never really give it a try.
- Management mindset matters too. If they are afraid of customer complaints and viral complaints online or by word of mouth, they will focus on the problem, not on the experience they would love customers to have.
- Leaders should study their customer and employee feedback and identify one thing at a time that they can do to deliver that experience (fixing a problem or creating a new experience)
- Finally, they should focus on successes and amplify throughout the organization. Focusing here and rewarding success is often far more effective for change than penalizing the failure.
