Are You CX-y Enough for Your Customers?

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, a day that symbolizes love. And just as flowers and chocolate are the language of love for couples, the language of love between you and your customer is your CX.

What does your CX say about you? Do your customers find you CX-y? If you’re like most organizations, you don’t know. You know CX is a priority.

Lessons Learnt: Is 'Black Christmas' Good or Bad for Customer Experience?

Black Christmas is the period that starts when the big UK retail brands decide to launch their Christmas TV campaigns and ends on Black Friday (or Cyber Monday if you have any cash left!). You’ve never heard the term ‘Black Christmas’? That’s because I’ve just named it. So now it’s a ‘thing’ my friends.
