Rethinking the Customer Journey in a Social World - Forbes
Social media, while too often far down on the list of priorities for most businesses, is certainly a primary focal point in our personal lives today. The data itself is clear: Social media has become the world’s most popular online activity of all, and perhaps the top digital activity of any kind.
The calls for change have been happening for years; businesses that don’t move into the same venues where their customers spend the most time stand to lose out when it comes to opportunities to engage with and do business with them. Most businesses have heard all of this before: change now or fall behind.
However, for many organizations, it’s not clear how to move ahead. An example: the language of updating organizations with social media is fraught with peril, meaning that the thinking therefore is, too. Social media is still a consumer phenomenon that wasn’t originally designed to support business needs. Unlike so many previous technology advances, this one was not created by business or intended for it. Ask anyone who has tried to adapt social media to their organizations and they’ll tell you that business usage is often an afterthought.
