Are you facing a rut when it comes to establishing a personal connection with your customers? For a fact that many businesses have transformed their business model to establish a digital presence due to Covid-19, it is crucial to continue a personal relationship with customers in order to capture their loyalty. Here’s what consumers are saying:
HOW YOU CAN EMBARK ON CUSTOMER-CENTRIC MARKETING TO RETAIN LOYAL CUSTOMERS
One of the very first few things you could start on is practising Empathy Marketing. Empathy marketing is seeing through your customers’ eyes. It is imperative for your business to have a deep understanding of who your customers are, what motivates them, and what challenges they face. From there, you would have a better understanding on how exactly to cater to their needs, essentially serving your customers with more accuracy and differentiating yourself from competitors.

CONVERSATIONAL MARKETING: GOING BEYOND CHATBOTS WHEN DELIVERING CUSTOMER-CENTRIC EXPERIENCES
Automated chatbots driven by artificial intelligence is a common feature you see on many websites today. But in 2022, conversational marketing does not just mean chatbots. In fact, you may often find chatbots to be quite limited in use when the help you require extends beyond its fixed library of automated responses. According to HubSpot, 66% of consumers will feel more confident about purchases when a brand is available and active on a messaging app, and 55% will feel more connected to the brand.
Why you should integrate Conversational Marketing into your Digital Marketing Strategy
BUILD TRUST AND RAPPORT WITH YOUR CUSTOMERS
Very often, the first point of complaint customers go to is through direct message in hopes of getting a quick response and solution to their problem. This is a pivotal moment that could either make or break the relationship you have with your customer.
IT’S CONVENIENT FOR BOTH YOU AND YOUR CUSTOMERS
Asynchronous types of messaging allows customers to pick up where they left off in your conversation with them, at any time to their convenience. You would also be able to understand the context of the conversation and avoid repeating information that has already been transmitted to your customers.

ALL ABOUT PERSONALISATION
Personalisation is critical for engaging with your consumers in a more human way, and this is imperative to capture the attention of your customers. Due to the sheer amount of content that is available at our fingertips, consumers today are prone to ignoring messages that are not relevant to them. Therefore, you would have to earn their consciousness with exceptional experiences and rich mobile engagements.
