Know what your customers want.Before you think of even starting to design your digital customer experience, it pays to know what thrills them in the first place. You should know by now that some approaches you use with an older age group do not work well with a younger bunch of people vice versa. Do your homework and study what keeps them interested.
It pays to be prepared. You are not only saving time, you are also saving on your monetary resources when you hit the target right where you should.

Get your people on board.Your whole team should be clear about your objective and plans. Some initiatives do not work out well simply because not everyone on the team is on board. Meaning, there is a tendency for business leaders to overlook the importance of communicating strategies and timelines to members of the team who should be in the know.
Educating your whole team about data analytics, for instance, equips them to be able to respond, plan out, measure, and process data properly. If some member of your team does not have an appreciation of basic customer data such as buying behavior, this can be a big blow to your business eventually.
