How Artificial Intelligence Has Influenced E-Commerce -- The Customer's Story

#artificialintelligence

In the first part of this blog, we looked at how Artificial Intelligence (AI) has shifted to the supplier side of the retail eco-system, particularly in two areas -- price and product offering. In this post, we will explore how this has impacted the buyer's journey at almost every stage. As many of you know, the buyer's journey starts from the awareness stage, where he comes to learn about a product or brand, and then goes through the following steps: research, consideration, purchase, and retention; The second is that a company tries to capture its customers. Above all, history shows that people who have previously purchased from your company will be repeat customers if they are happy with the entire journey.

Delivering Next Best Action with Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

In marketing analytics, a marketing and sales funnel is the set of steps a visitor goes through before making a purchase. More and more, this customer's journey includes a diverse set of touchpoints, involving both push and pull: The most accurate and reliable way to find the optimal marketing touchpoints for your own funnel is to use machine learning-- clever algorithms that quickly search through your data. These algorithms learn by example, finding common patterns within customers' demographics and touchpoints in order to predict sales. While each customer journey looks different, it can be conceptually represented by the diagram below (Figure 1). The challenge for marketers is to optimize this journey, selecting the touchpoints that bring the customer to a decision to purchase as quickly and smoothly as possible.


3 facts that make messenger-based AI chatbots a success driver. I promise.

#artificialintelligence

Companies must be in target group dialogue throughout the entire customer journey. But for many, chatbots are still impersonal dialogue models, too expensive and too complex anyway. Here are 3 facts that disprove this -- admittedly not completely wrong -- impression. Customer-centric, User Experiences and Customer Journeys -- companies around the world are facing enormous challenges in meeting the demands of heterogeneous target groups who expect a high-quality customer dialogue that is available at all times and tailored to their needs. The increasing use and acceptance of messengers is also leading to a paradigm shift in communication: target groups are looking for personal conversations at eye level with companies -- whose one-sided placement of more or less credible advertising messages is becoming increasingly irrelevant. Dialogue chat offers based on artificial intelligence have been tried and tested communication tools with a lot of potential for a few years now, which, however, has not yet been fully exploited.

Customization and automation are key to customer journeys over the phone

#artificialintelligence

Two words that seem to be at odds with each other, especially if you look at them within the context of phone channels in customer relations! It's somewhat counterintuitive, particularly when you factor in the roles they play in brand's strategies regarding customer relations optimization. To begin with, let's define what these two terms mean in the field of customer relations: What's the new, shared ambition bringing these two extremes together? Indeed, properly automated, tailor-made customer journeys via phone channels will no longer be viewed, wrongly, as a necessary evil by some customers, nor considered a costly proposition by most brands. They will be perceived as an integral element praised both for its efficiency and its personal touch.

Greater Acceptance of AI Has Resulted in Lower Satisfaction Levels

#artificialintelligence

The COVID-19 crisis has accelerated the use of digital technologies and has increased the application of artificial intelligence (AI) into all aspects of the consumer experience. As the pandemic continues to impact the way consumers interact with financial institutions and with each other, the demand for contactless or non-touch interfaces, such as chatbots, increases. This has forced organizations to find new ways to integrate advanced intelligence into the entire customer journey. According to an Economist Intelligence Unit survey from March and April of 2020, 77% of bank executives believed the the ability to extract value from AI will sort the winners from the losers in banking. AI platforms were the second highest priority area of technology investment, behind only cybersecurity, according to the survey.
