Mike Corak, Vice President and General Manager at DAC Group, joins the Content Experience Show to discuss parts of the customer experience that are often overlooked.
All About the Customer Experience
The customer journey is built of many parts that should lead to a single, smooth operation from start to finish. Unfortunately, many content marketers tend to overlook seemingly less significant pieces. This oversight can lead to a jarring and even broken experience.
Mike Corak of DAC Group believes that these often neglected pieces of the customer journey are actually the most important. It may be easy to focus on what is considered core content, but initial touchpoints like localized content and point of purchase can be important determining factors for your sale.
By making sure that all of these smaller, peripheral pieces still line up with your core content and focusing on the customer journey, you can ensure a smooth process and seal up any “leaks” along the way.
