Omnichannel 101: How to Create a Seamless Customer Experience

We connect with ideas, behaviors, and people because we yearn to be something greater than the sum of our parts. With every touch, we become bigger.

AnswerNet has been in the business of connection for 25+ years. Our 1,200+ trained professionals handle 125 million+ calls, chats, and texts a year that connect our 10,000+ clients to their customers. Today, we’re here to preach the benefits of our omnichannel approach.

Omnichannel Basics

Omnichannel customer service incorporates every communication channel—including phone, email, social media, live chat and more—to connect with the customer. Moreover, omnichannel ensures these channels flow seamlessly so that customers can operate on their preferences.

According to a 2021 Omnisend review, customer purchase rate is 250% higher on omnichannel than on single-channel. To improve your reach, profits, and customer satisfaction, let’s dive into the steps behind an omnichannel campaign.

1. Understand Your Customer Demographics

Information is the bedrock of a successful omnichannel campaign. If you understand your average customer’s demographic information and preferred touchpoint, you can focus your omnichannel efforts to maximum impact.

For example, nearly 80% of Zoomers report using social media to communicate directly with brands, but 75% of millennials surveyed would opt for text-only communication. Suffice to say, audience research lends massive returns for your omnichannel efforts.

2. Prioritize Consistent Messaging

While your varied channels will have different levels of development, they should all feature the same information, tone, and style. Consistency across your website, social media, emails and more will build trust and reinforce your brand identity.

Consider every possible interaction, including phone calls, live chat, and even in-person experiences. Little consistent touches even among lesser-used channels go a long way.

3. Implement Integrated Technology Solutions

Integrated technology solutions allow you to synchronize your data across all channels in real-time. Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems, integrated with your call center and other communication platforms, ensure that all customer interactions are logged and accessible. 

With integration, your team can provide personalized and informed support regardless of the channel. Without integration, reliable omni channel communication is impossible.

4. Enhance Customer Support with a Call Center

Call centers utilize pre-built infrastructure to handle customer inquiries with speed and tact across all channels. We jumpstart your omnichannel campaign with experience, research, and a commitment to stellar support. 

At AnswerNet, we match your demand with a sliding scale of agents trained in phone calls, emails, live chats, social media interactions and more. We work with you to maximize your returns and provide unified, high-quality customer service wherever you need it.
