Welcome to a new era of business in which your brand is defined by those who experience it. Customer experience is the new marketing and itas also one of the hottest trends in business right now. Also known as CX, executives, strategists, and agencies alike are learning that the digital customer is notably different than the traditional customers before them. Expectations, the technology they use, how and where they make decisions and what it is they value is forcing strategists to rethink and redesign the customer journey for a multiscreen world. While rife with challenges, CX represents a life-saving opportunity for businesses to earn relevance among a new generation of connected customers. Butabwhat is an experience? Believe it or not, itas more than creative marketing or exceptional customer support. An experience is a physical and emotional connection between brand and customer throughout the relationship lifecycle. An experience is the brand and it is aspirational.
