For today’s telecoms companies personalised customer experience is just as important as the products they offer

Seal the Deal – Where Should Telcos be Putting Most Emphasis to Increase Sales?

In a recent research study by Conversity, ‘Supercharging personalisation: behaviour and attitudes in telco buying decisions’ questions were asked about the emphasis customers put on various touch points of the customer journey. What would make them more likely to buy? Was there such thing as too much information? In a world where customers are notoriously able to glean information they want for themselves, was there such thing as too much human interaction when making a purchase decision? Here’s what they had to say…

The Complexities of Cracking the Cross Sell & Why Telcos Need to Know the Worth of Getting Personal

Success in telco is so often about fine margins. The difference between closing a sale or losing out to a competitor can hinge on the smallest yet most critical of factors, such as a small disparity in price plans or a superior level of customer service. It almost goes without saying that – in a telco world so fraught with choices and complex buying options – persuading a prospect to become a customer – especially a customer who purchases more than one service or product from you - is about being able to go that extra mile to make sure consumers are given the right guidance at every stage of the buying process.

Regulations and Convergence. Telco Trends and What They Mean for Customer Experience and Engagement

Telcos are at the forefront of businesses that need to make significant changes in the coming months if they are to keep up with the tech and connectivity advancements, consumer shopping trends and regulation changes.

Complex Purchases – Why Retailers Must be Quick and Slick. A Retailer Guide to Helping Shoppers Find the Right Products

Make it easy for shoppers to discover the information they seek, and then lead them to the answers. Fail? They’ll leave.

Avoid Digital Pigeonholing. Surprising Baby Boomer Statistics for Retailers & Brands – Retail Research

The digital conversation typically starts and ends with Millennials and Gen X. In fact, if you ask the (probably youngish) man on the street, the prediction would likely be that complex online shopping journeys and a responsive web presence is probably generated with these seemingly more tech-savvy generations in mind. But as the world continues to plug in, the rest of society is adapting and research is consistently telling us to rethink our opinions on the baby boomer generations when it comes to tech...

The Synergistic Benefits of ‘Leisure Shopping’ and Why Brands Must Take Responsibility for Enriching the Shopping Experience

As online shopping becomes an increasingly dominant force in the retail world, many shopping centres are introducing ‘trip motivations’ to their environments – adding leisure activities and entertainment – such as crazy golf and escape rooms – in a bid to encourage consumer spending by driving footfall and providing them with a richer, all-round experience. Here's how...

‘The Most Important Data Privacy Regulation in 20 Years’ Making Sure Retailers & Telco Systems are GDPR Compliant

The month of May is upon us, and with it comes the much-anticipated GDPR deadline. For retailers and telcos, GDPR is much more than a data cleanse or a one-off frustrating inconvenience, it’s an opportunity to renegotiate the terms of engagement between people, their data, and your company, whilst also throwing light on the systems you have in place to ensure you remain GDPR compliant both now and in the future.

Mind the Gap – The Power of Productivity – Part Two of Three

Productivity, and the maintenance thereof is something retailers need to think long and hard about if they intend to thrive through this turbulent time. The choice is simple, continue to live precariously amongst these gaps in consumer confidence and productivity, or take matters into their own hands and make a positive change for the better?
