There are numerous questions that you need to ask when it comes to building out a strategy that will engage with your audience and encourage them to convert. This eBook will look at many of these and help you to offer the best user experience (UX) possible.
What is UX?
Essentially user experience or UX is the practice of making sure that you are offering the best possible online service to your sites visitors. This is vital if you are to retain existing business and win new customers.
What is a customer touchpoint?
A customer touchpoint is the part of your site or marketing activity that engages with the user and whereby they connect with your brand. They are your brand’s points of customer contact, from start to finish. This could be in the form of a sale or an enquiry and this will depend on where they are in the sales funnel. The main difference with a touchpoint is that it is the place of an interaction and not the channel in which they have found you.
You can separate touchpoints out into three distinct groups:
- Marketing channels (email, phone, social media, blogs, vlogs, podcasts, etc).
