The experiences of your customers can also be used to attract new customers and help to showcase your brand online; Chris will also cover how brands can truly understand the insight behind the feedback, and use that insight to attract new customers to continue growth, and look into some of the common challenges when it comes to monetising feedback.

We know CX matters when it comes to sales. Today, a whopping 46% of consumers say that customer experience is the main driver of the purchase decision whereas pricing is only 20%. But what is the main driver of customer experience? Emotions.
Emotions are the key drivers that ultimately determine whether we buy or not. They comprise the most vital part of the customer experience: Everything from customer satisfaction to the willingness to recommend is tied to them. Furthermore, once we’ve decided to buy, we choose which company to do business with based on the experience and the emotional drivers behind it.
The research done by Mr. Colin Shaw and his team from the London School of Economics shows that rather than focusing solely on NPS and CES, you need to shift your attention to creating emotions that you want to elicit throughout the customer journey and find a way to measure them.
This led to the creation of the EVI® or the Emotional Value Index. The Emotional Value Index (EVI®) measures the level and types of emotion that drive your sales. It automatically delivers invaluable data and insight which can be used to optimize your business to drive better results.

A good digital customer experience is proven to contribute to online customer satisfaction, sales, customer loyalty, and positive word-of-mouth communication. However, very little research has been done on the topic, especially in Finland, although digital customer experience has been a big topic in sales and marketing discussion for a long time.
The effects of using Finnchat’s chat service on e-commerce customer experience and attitudes towards e-commerce were extensively studied in 2017. The study included five large Finnish e-commerce stores and a survey was conducted for e-commerce customers who had made a purchase in the previous two months. This remains still the largest and most extensive study on the subject to date in Finland.
A total of 7228 responses were received to the study. The group comparison of the results analysis distinguished between respondents who used the help of Finnchat’s chat agent in connection with the last purchase (“chat respondents”; n = 655) and respondents who did not use it (“non-chat” n = 6573). The benefits of chat for online shopping
The research results showed that the chat service brings significant benefits to online shopping. Chat service was found to improve the sales efficiency of e-commerce visits, but also to bring long-term benefits through an improved customer experience.
The main benefits of the chat service for online stores that emerged from the study:
The customer buys more
The customer buys more often
Customer exit is decreasing
The number of recommenders is growing
Commitment to the brand is growing
Customer satisfaction is improving
Customers using the e-commerce chat service:
Recommended e-commerce 47.5 % more likely
40.7 % more likely to trust the online store
Intended to make repurchases 28.0% more likely
Were satisfied with e-commerce 27.3% more likely
According to the research results, chat agents were able to solve 72.4 % of the problems faced by the customer in online shopping. A chat conversation during an e-commerce visit nearly tenfold the probability of a customer making a purchase (an improvement in the conversion rate of 895 %).
E-commerce sales per session (= sales euros per e-commerce visit) was 1310 % higher when the visit was combined with a chat.
Customers with experience in the chat service were 39.7 % less likely to leave the online store when they encountered the problem, and the average purchase of a chat customer was 37 % higher than other customers.
The importance of the chat service in purchasing decisions during an e-commerce visit
The three most important things that customers who tried the chat service needed help in the study:
Getting more information about the products
Inquiry about product availability
Selection of suitable products
Customers needed help from chat customer service especially for things that support the purchase decision. According to the results of the survey, Finnchat’s chat agents are able to meet customers’ needs and help customers make purchase decisions. 85.0 % of chat respondents found the chat service useful when making their previous purchase in an online store and 64.1% of chat respondents felt that they would not have been able to make their purchase decision without the help of the chat customer service.
Now in 2021 interacting within websites is a very important factor in digital CX. Chat service is one big thing when interacting on your websites, but it is not the only one. We believe that creating different service layers within a website is a good way to develop the digital CX. These service layers include proactive self-service, automation (chatbots and AI), personal chat service, and expert service to solve the most challenging cases.

Medir la experiencia del cliente siempre ha sido importante, el contexto actual ha hecho que sea indispensable. Solo unas pocas compañías o marcas pueden diferenciarse e ignorar al cliente y no entender que la experiencia al cliente sea una ventaja competitiva.
Probablemente esté de acuerdo y a la vez sepa que la recopilación de datos (CX) y la capitalización de estos, son clave para su negocio, aunque el reto reside en identificar las acciones que deben implementarse … aunque no están siempre tan claras.
