5 customer engagement strategies for customer support

Ahoy, the customer experience champions! Here’s a treasure map guiding you through the first part of our adventure – the realm of customer support.

1. Usage of a streamlined feedback menu

As customers embark on their digital journey through our website or product, they’re greeted by a welcoming, user-friendly feedback menu. It’s like our ship’s compass, pointing users in the right direction. 

The menu shines bright with features such as a support chatbot (a buddy we borrowed from experts like Intercom and Zendesk), an all-knowing help center, the bug-reporting wizard, and a feature request genie in a widget.

2. Proactive customer engagement strategy with the help of chat widget

Imagine having a parrot on your shoulder, whispering whenever someone needs your attention. 

That’s what it feels like when our chatbot alerts us or Usersnap sends notifications about a customer’s inquiries or issues

Sometimes, we become the brave pirates initiating the conversation, popping up a chat widget, steering it using log events, and curating more context-rich responses based on our users’ digital footsteps.

3. Efficient issue resolution with metadata and console log error recording

Every once in a while, a storm may hit, and customers report issues or bugs. 

Fear not! Our dedicated crew of agents is ready to battle. 

Armed with all the necessary tools, they dive deep to resolve the challenges. And if the sea gets too rough? 

The tech team takes over. With Usersnap’s treasure chest of metadata and console log error recording, we navigate through the stormy seas, often halving the time it takes to see clear skies again.

4. Seamless feature requests (and communication about new features with “reply feature”)

On this journey, when customers whisper legends of a feature they wish to see, our agents, acting like wish-granting genies, quickly note it down via Intercom. 

They then gift the customers a magic map (psst, a link to a public board) where they can track the progress of their wish. 

With the magical “reply feature” the Usersnap team can send messages in bottles (or notifications/emails) about releases directly from our dashboard.

5. Continuous feedback loop and amazing customer satisfaction rater

After every thrilling encounter, we hand our customers a magic mirror—a customer satisfaction rater

Whether in an email or a chatbot’s final whisper, this mirror reflects the essence of our support team’s performance. 

Like an ancient scroll, the Statistics tab offers an intricate monthly overview. 

And the most beautiful part?

Our customers, in their feedback glory, ensure their voices echo about our services and do avoid getting cluttered with other elements of their customer journey too.

This vibrant adventure is just the beginning. As we sail further into customer engagement, let’s explore more realms that promise success and prosperity. Stay aboard, and let’s set the course for the next destination.

4 strategies for ensuring customer success

Embark on the second leg of our customer engagement strategy journey as we set sail toward the uncharted territories of customer success. 

With the compass of our strategies, let’s navigate these waters to ensure every customer feels valued, engaged, and, most importantly, successful.

1. Proactive check-ins with loyal customers: The heartbeat of customer care within the product

In the vast ocean of customer interaction, it’s not always the customer who has to send out an SOS. 

We proactively light up the beacon of care with quarterly check-ins for our cherished high Annual Contract Value (ACV) customers. 

Here’s where Usersnap comes into play like a trusty first mate. Instead of casting messages in bottles (read: emails) that might drift astray, we send chat invitations directly within our product

This direct line of communication has shown to be a game-changer, with customers more likely to engage than traditional emails. And for those in-depth discussions, or when a more personal touch is required, we raise the anchor on tools like Calendly and Zoom, ensuring smooth sailing for our interactive sessions.

2. Strategic NPS measurement: Listening to the winds of feedback

We use our Net Promoter Score (NPS) widget to truly harness the winds of customer sentiment. However, we understand that no sailor likes to be constantly pushed by gusts. 

That’s why, using the brilliance of conditional logic, our NPS widget only makes its presence felt once every 90 days.

And for those who find the widget a stormy presence? We have email exclusions in place to ensure smooth sailing. 

This strategic approach ensures we gather valuable feedback to improve customer engagement without overwhelming or frustrating our voyagers.

3. Understanding churn: Navigating through stormy seas

In our quest for customer success, sometimes storms are inevitable. Churn, or customers leaving, is one such disruption. 

But, rather than merely weathering the storm, we believe in understanding its roots. To delve into why customers might jump ship, we deploy churn questionnaires crafted expertly with the aid of Usersnap. 

Each questionnaire acts as a beacon, illuminating reasons for departure from customer loyalty programs and offering insights on potentially reversing the tide. By understanding the crux of churn, we can tailor our approach and even attempt to win back our treasured customers.

4. Feature announcements: Hoisting the flag of innovation

Our customers must always know about the latest developments in the ever-evolving seascape of product features. 

And what better way to hoist the flag of new features than with Usersnap? We ensure our users are the first to know every time we unfurl significant new enhancements. 

Through feature announcements integrated directly within the product, we don’t just inform; we entice, engage, and encourage our users to dive in and explore the newest horizons.

In wrapping up this segment of our voyage, remember that while the strategies are our compass, the commitment to our customers is our true North Star. 

As we continue to innovate, adapt, and learn, our customers’ feedback, experiences, customer engagement examples, and success stories keep our ship on course. Sail towards brighter horizons, for with tools like Usersnap at our helm and our dedication as the wind in our sails, there’s no sea too vast to conquer.

Tools and software recommendations – Usersnap and integrations

One needs the right chisel and hammer to sculpt the masterstroke of successful customer engagement.

Here are some top-tier tools to consider:

  • Usersnap: The Swiss knife of customer feedback tools. From seamless bug reporting to proactive check-ins, it’s an all-in-one solution for customer feedback and product improvement.

The world of customer data is akin to Pandora’s box. It’s potent and valuable but demands responsibility. Here are some crucial guidelines:

  • Transparency: Always disclose what data you’re collecting and its purpose. Being upfront builds trust and confidence.
  • Opt-In/Opt-Out: Ensure customers have the choice to provide data and can easily retract it. Empower them to be in control.
  • Data storage: Invest in secure storage solutions. Data breaches can be catastrophic not only in terms of finances but also reputation.

  • Ethical use: Data is power. Ensure it’s used ethically, respecting customers’ privacy and intent.
