Brands Must Deliver At Every Customer Touchpoint
People no longer just buy products. They buy brands.
Increasingly they also buy experiences.
Brands must deliver at every customer touchpoint – not just through advertising campaigns, public relations or look good in social media.
Think about how you feel when all the components of an experience are in harmony. Like the experience at a superb restaurant, the music, lighting, service and – of course – the food.
At Equal Strategy, we have a natural enthusiasm for helping clients create a fully integrated brand experience that aligns with your brand strategy.
Neglecting certain components of the brand experience is detrimental to the potential and overall power of the brand.
At Equal Strategy, we provide sensory mechanisms to redress the balance and make a difference at your most human touch-points throughout your customer journey…… on both telephone and business premises.

Sensory Marketing: Telephone Music & Messaging
The Forgotten Touchpoint
The telephone is one of the most frequently used and most important brand touchpoints. However, callers are often disappointed or frustrated when they try to reach a company by telephone. Their experience simply doesn’t match the glossy print ads and TV commercials.
For even great brands, this can be a point of vulnerability. It’s a major reason why customers switch brands and one of the most effective ways of eroding hard-won brand equity.
Well-designed telephone on-hold experiences retain more callers and well constructed Call Automation systems allow callers to get the response they want quickly and efficiently, enhancing customer satisfaction.

Call Automation (IVR - Interactive Voice Response)
A properly functioning IVR system allows you to enhance customer satisfaction, improve customer loyalty, up-sell and cross-sell services and improve the overall efficiency and effectiveness of your contact centre.
Your IVR should enable your customers to do business with you in a way that reflects your brand and your values.
For most businesses, IVR is the most important touchpoint with their customers, and most people hate using it – but not for long!
