Customers nowadays know where and how to reach your brand. They can contact you through your website, social media channels, telephone, email, in-site chatbots you can install on your website, or through your mobile application.

Let’s say you're booking site for cruises around the region, so you deal with a good number of inquiries and reservations on a daily basis. But these don’t always come from just your website. You’ll get comments on your social media accounts, asking all sorts of questions; your info email could bursting with messages about deals for a family reunion; or the telephones are ringing throughout the day with people on the other end explaining how wonderful their trip was because of your service.

You can’t avoid it: the customer needs answers, and they need them now.

This omnichannel customer experience is the new frontier, and effectively connecting with your customers—and prospects—is important in maintaining a successful relationship. Who knows? One satisfactory call can lead to customer loyalty. Or on the flipside, one unsatisfactory call, can lead to a lost customer.

Channel Pivoting

But an omnichannel communications strategy, if not seamless, will not help your company. This is where channel pivoting comes in: it is when a customer, both potential and current, connects with your brand in one channel, such as your website, and then finishes in another channel, like an email.

When you excel at channel pivoting, your efforts will result in:

  • Positive brand sentiment - when your customers are willing to share good feedback about your brand, it will improve brand loyalty and customers will look forward to future services and updates
  • Personalized messaging - customer experience with a personal touch gives you better sentiment
  • Increase in profit - naturally, when you have positive feedback, people are willing to spend more money on your products or services because they know that the experience they get is great
