    What is omnichannel communication?

    Businesses today are met with new marketing concepts left, right and center. This is a process that is unlikely to end soon, seeing relationships between business and customer continue to evolve as technology advances and customer expectations rise. Sure, it’s not that hard to make the distinction between single and multichannel communications, but when the terms crosschannel communications and omnichannel communications are thrown into the mix, things get complicated and all these concepts, although distinctly different, might start to fade into each other.

    What is multichannel communication?

    Back in the day, the concept of customer communications was all about the message and the customer. Today it’s about way more than that. Timing plays a big role and the choice of the right medium is even more crucial. All these aspects of customer communications and how they come together trickle down to one thing: meeting customer preferences.

    How digital and interactive are your customer communications?

    The wave of technological revolutions and digital opportunities is gaining momentum and all modern companies and organizations must try to surf it. Some digital laggards fail to catch this wave all together, other companies are having a hard time to stay on their feet, and some digital champions are speeding ahead as they surf the crest towards the sunny beach of digital maturity.

    Why should you combine marketing and service communications?

    When you meet someone special, you pull out all the stops to be the best possible version of yourself. You dress nice, hold open the door, pay for drinks and laugh at every joke that person makes. After some time however, when all goes well, you might start putting in less of an effort. There are dirty socks on the floor, you don’t hold back as many burps as before and the parents-in-law are no longer as funny as they were when you first met them.

    In many regards, customer communications over the course of the customer journey can be very similar. As a result, the difference between marketing and service communications can be day and night. However, they both have specific benefits which, if combined, allow you to engage with your customers in ways that seemed impossible before.

    How to reduce the workload of your IT team?

    “Hi Jerry, sorry to barge in here so unannounced. Could you do me a favor and adjust the logo on this invoice for me? Just a bit bigger, thanks, I’ll be back in five!” Two minutes later: “Jerry my man, what’s keeping my logo? Ah, that’s it! Or wait no, on second thought, leave it the same size, just put it a bit more to the right, will you? Be back in a sec! “One hour later: “Jerry! The logo is fine but management wants me to add in our new phone number as well. You got it? Cheers!” Another five minutes pass. “Jayjay, bad news! Forget what I asked, just change it back to the original, we need that communication asap! Keep me posted!”

    What is Operational Efficiency?

    If your products are truly the best on the market and they have been all the rage for years, you can rest assured that everyone will patiently await your next release. Why should they spend money on let’s say a decent smartphone now, when they can buy yours in a couple months time to show to friends and family? Unfortunately for most businesses this scenario reads like a fairytale. It takes time, vision and the best assets in every department to get to this level that only few world famous companies have managed to achieve.

    The road to digital transformation: we are only halfway there

    Although the concept of digital is about more user-friendliness, efficiency and loss of friction, digital transformation, ironically, proves to be hard work. Despite the pace of digital disruption, a lot of businesses are only taking digital baby steps. This is the conclusion of the ‘Digital Transformation Index II’ report, listing the results of an inquiry by technology companies Dell Technologies and Intel in collaboration with market research partner Vanson Bourne among 4.600 business leaders from medium and large enterprises in 42 countries.

    Transpromotional communications: A match made in heaven

    We all have read these stories or seen them on TV: Men madly in love and blinded by romance skillfully ruining the biggest moments of their lives. While one is turned down by his girlfriend in a packed football stadium, another one sees his life savings go down the drain as he gets on one knee only to drop the ring in the sewer. And then there’s the guy who cleverly hides the ring in the dessert only to see his darling swallow it whole or almost choke on the diamond.
