The Era Of Search 3.0 One of the most important evolutions of today and tomorrow has certainly been that of search. Search 1.0 – with search engines like Yahoo and AltaVista – consisted of simple human-edited directories of websites, like some sort of “yellow pages”. They offered information but it was up to users to find and filter what they needed and scan through all the links and websites. In the next phase, Search 2.0, Google offered relevant information and links, through an algorithm called PageRank. Now, since the launch of ChatGPT in November 2023, we have arrived at the fascinating S ..read more

A Diamond in the rough For those who are not yet familiar with the Diamond in the rough concept, a short recap. Every company leader I meet (ok, almost every one of them), has the great intention of getting customer experience right. Yet, most companies remain diamonds in the rough in terms of customer experience: their customer experience potential is not fully exploited and they never seem to become the shiny and radiant diamond that their customers deserve. That’s why I wrote my new book: to help companies develop their full CX potential by fostering a culture that is obsessed with the cust ..read more

The wrong priorities ‘Before we start with the customer experience part, I want to give you a quick update on our financial results and how far we deviate from our targets,’ the CEO goes on and on overwhelming employees with 10 minutes of tables, graphs, red and green numbers and arrows pointing hither and yon. Not a word is spoken about customers by this CEO who is fixated on how much above or below the company is from the annual target. Only when he introduces me, is the word “customer” used. I literally felt the vibes in the room change once the CEO started talking. The enthusiasm collapsed ..read more

Hyperpersonalize Very few brands trump Nike when it comes to hyperpersonalization, both offline and virtually.

They have a private fitting service for bras, with recommendations to suit customers training needs. The “Nike Fit” in-store service maps your foot morphology for the most accurate fit possible and saves that size for future purchases, in ..read more

It’s complicated First of all, the health sector is pretty notorious for its lack of empathy. Stephen Trzeciak and Anthony Mazzarelli, two physician scientists have even been talking about a compassion crisis in healthcare. In fact, 71% of respondents of a 2019 study said they experienced a lack of compassion when speaking with a medical professional, and 73% said they always or often feel rushed by their doctor. And that was even before the pandemic, and the ensuing mental health crisis. So if there is one domain in which it is easier for an AI to “win” in empathy and compassion, it’s probabl ..read more

Lead Companies with a successful customer centric culture – from Apple and Amazon to Starbucks and Glossier – stand out with these 2 things: they have a strong customer vision and leaders who show with their decisions and actions that they will always and forever put the customer first. You can have the prettiest slogans on your walls or the most inspiring slides, if your employees see that you put efficiency, productivity and revenue before the customer’s needs, your culture will be driven by that. It will be ruthless, competitive and oriented towards cost-reduction. In fact, leaders should t ..read more

The new standards I for instance thought that Spotify’s demo of its artificial intelligent DJ looked pretty impressive. An AI DJ selects the music it thinks you might like, and then combines it with spoken commentary around the tracks or artists, delivered in a realistic-sounding, AI-generated voice. In other words, it allows you to have your very own personal radio DJ. And it is exactly these types of approaches that are becoming the new standards. If you look at the evolution of generative AI and specifically at ChatGPT, it’s clear that we’re moving into a phase where personalization will b ..read more

Temu – the shopping app and e-commerce platform from Chinese e-commerce giant Pinduoduo – is probably the most popular downloaded (in the US) app you never heard of. Yet, it currently has more downloads than Amazon, TikTok, Instagram or even Shein. So what is?

The nature of the products and their prices are very diverse and website looks a bit like a virtual dollar store. How has it become so popular in such a short time? 1. S ..read more
