If there’s a topic on every marketers’ lips nowadays, it has to be Customer Experience (CX). Marketers know that their competitors are prioritising CX because their customers expect it and because it delivers a substantial ROI because 72% of customers will share a positive experience with others.

For these reasons and so many more, CX has become one of the most pressing business cases of the moment. But although many organisations are dedicating more resources to this field – including the establishment of whole CX departments in large enterprises – there is a central tenet of CX that marketers keep ignoring: the power of human connections.

Only by creating meaningful emotional bonds with customers can marketers achieve the lasting and loyal brand-customer relationships that lay at the heart of CX. If you don’t know where to start overhauling your CX strategy to put emotional connections front and centre, then we have the perfect event for you: Sitecore Experience 2020.

Building Emotional Bonds with Customers

Many organisations understand the vital role CX will play in the future, with 62% of companies now pledging to invest in CX to meet the changing needs of customers. But despite this shift, many organisations don’t fully understand why CX works: the emotional bond it helps brands build with customers.

Humans don’t interact with brands on a purely logical basis. Human beings are ruled by emotion, and we build relationships with everything based on how they make us feel. This is especially the case when it comes to brands.

Experiences are the foundations of a relationship customers have with brands, with positive experiences reinforcing the relationship and negative experiences potentially ending the relationship.

For instance, PwC recently found that just over 9 out of 10 customers would leave a brand they love after two or three negative experiences. Meanwhile, a third of customers leave a brand after just one negative experience.

Clearly, human connections play a pivotal role in creating outstanding customer experiences, and no one understands that better than our partners at Sitecore. Sitecore’s solutions, like its Content Hub and Experience Platform, seek to empower brands with the capabilities they need to foster lasting connections with their customers.

This year, Sitecore is running the latest edition in its ongoing event series, Sitecore Experience 2020. Taking place in March, this one-day conference will focus on Powering Marketing Through Human Connection.
