Customer experience (CX) can make or break companies, as consumers now expect exceptional interactions with them. When those experiences satisfy customers, they become loyal to the brand. When those experiences anger or frustrate customers, they take to social media and share their negative feedback far and wide.
In fact, Forrester found that “a single one-point increase in customer experience can mean as much as an additional $873 million per year in revenue for auto manufacturers, and incremental revenue per customer of $48.50.” Similar studies show that customer experience significantly impacts the bottom line: 62% of B2B and 42% of B2C customers purchase more after a positive experience, but 66% and 52% stop purchasing after a poor experience. Additionally, 95% of customers with negative experiences tell others about it, while only 87% share good experiences.
