					Customer experiences, many times overlooked, but remember it is an important part
of any business growth plan! Any communication you have with customers
contributed to customer experience.
  Customer experience is a challenge as there are no fixed parameters to measure. It
has lot to do with understanding customer psychology and their buying habits. It is
not simple to reverse these subjective parameters in hard data, and that is why all
organizations have a different process for determining standards for the measurement
of customer experience.
  When you want to get an understanding of how customers think, you need to think
like them. Visualize that you are a customer of the business.
  You have seen how our customers manage the organization. Now glance at the
performance of customer service and marketing managers. Not only for customer care
because people could experience embraces all aspects of direct and indirect
interaction between your business and your customers, your employees must be
trained in customer management. These apply to all employees, not just those who
work as customer service executives.
  Telephone surveys and email questionnaires are old-fashioned - now make the
survey more precise: Did the process look easy? Do you need to use alternative
methods? Did you achieve what you're looking for? Was a leader helpful? Many
customers may even find them irritating. As an alternative, schedule meetings with
usual customers, especially if the products are targeted at other businesses rather than
individual users. Involve your clients from product design stage to ensure better
customer experience.
  In an effort to advertise your product, remember that the quality of the product
counts. Dissatisfied customer can easily spread the word and take away ten prospects.
Poor products and services don't just put potential customers; they are also forcing
existing customers to look elsewhere.
  Good customer service is not enclosed in a single conversation or transaction.
Actually, you should attempt to minimize the customer's needs to call up with
complaints! A customer experience includes everything from what they believe about
your brand, your ethics and your work processes. Bring your retail experience,
advertising, newsletters, post purchase service in your customer service assessment.
  Understand your customers better in order to provide customized products and
services to customers to gain loyalty and satisfaction.
