    Why is data visualisation so important for your business?

    Did you enjoy playing with Legos when you were a kid? If so, then you most certainly did one of two things whenever you’d start a new build. Either you would just rip open the bags and pour the pieces on the floor, which led to digging in the pile for minutes on end in search for a specific piece over and over again.

    Or you would have turned to the art of knolling and sorted all the pieces of the entire kit before beginning assembly. Knolling is the process of arranging similar objects in parallel or 90-degree angles as a method of organisation. This requires patience but once all pieces are laid out, it’s easier to find what you are looking for. And it looks great too.

    In terms of structure, overview and organisation, knolling is a lot like data visualisation. While you can surely play with Legos without knolling, you cannot build quality customer communications without properly visualising your data. Data visualisation is very important, for your customers as well as your business. In this week’s blog we’ll tell you why.

    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.

    What is customer retention?

    When you look at modern advertising you’ll notice that a lot of today’s billboards, tv ads and print commercials are focused on persuading and courting new customers. That’s because in the eyes of most companies, extra customers quickly translate into extra revenue. While gaining customers indeed boosts revenue, not losing any is proven to do so faster and at a much lower cost. When someone is not familiar with what you have to offer, it will take a lot of persuading to get him to buy your products. But when somebody already knows you and has taken a liking to your products, it will not cost you a huge effort to get him or her to come back for more.

    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!”

    When the pieces fall together: The importance of data in digital transformation

    Imagine you need to run some errands. You walk into the store and the woman behind the register says “Hi”. That’s nice. You appreciate her kindness and respond “Well, hello, how are you?” as you walk past. Now imagine that as you enter the shop she says: “Hi Jim, long time no see! How is your wife Karen? If you are looking for those cereal your kids like, they are stored in the third isle from the left.”

    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.
