1. Personalization and memorable experiences are important for ecommerce
In ecommerce, having repeat buyers is important for sustainable growth. Companies must prioritize providing a good customer experience and personalized communication. Every touchpoint matters and can influence whether customers will return. This can include things like offering user-friendly interfaces, personalized recommendations based on their preferences and purchase history, and timely and relevant communication. Go the extra mile by personally reaching out to customers, sharing updates, and offering incentives to not only help retain them but also to exceed their expectations. By tailoring your approach to each customer and making them feel valued, you can establish a connection that goes beyond a simple transaction.
"If you're gonna obsess over anything, obsess about your customers and their experience. And at the end of the day, those are the businesses that I see being successful.” - Dan Caldwell, Klaviyo
2. Close the feedback loop with customers and across departments
Actively closing the feedback loop with customers and valuing their input can have a profound impact on their perception of your brand. Listening to their feedback, addressing any issues promptly, and incorporating their suggestions demonstrates that you value their opinions and are committed to providing a positive experience.
By sharing customer feedback across different departments and not confining it solely to customer support, you can drive organizational change and prioritize the customer experience as a company-wide goal.
“One of the biggest game changers for us has really been closing the feedback loop proactively with customers before they even need to reach out to us.” - Eryn Chesney, Mabel's Labels
3. Set clear expectations with customers
There are many barriers in the ecommerce industry that need to be considered; cost, shipping, and delivery timelines are a few of them. Balancing factors like speed, trackability, predictability, and cost when it comes to shipping is important. While free shipping may lack trackability and predictability, it's crucial to set clear expectations and provide options for customers. Utilize content management strategies — such as FAQs focused on shipping, chat beacons, or pop-up messages at checkout — to thoroughly communicate shipping details.
