2021 Customer Experience ROI Study

This is a nice study by Watermark Consulting examining the impact of good customer experience on the company value indicator the majority of CEOs care about the most: share price.

The approach is simple in theory (there is quite a lot of work to do of course):

  1. Identify companies with good and bad CX using a variety of industry studies: Forrester, Temkin Group, etc.
  2. Track their share price.
  3. Compare the two.

The results could not be more clear: 

  • CX Leaders achieve higher total returns than the average company (S&P 500)
  • CX Laggards total returns actually shrink over time.

Long time CX/Customer Service practitioner Bill Quiseng shows that good content doesn’t have to be long content, it just needs to make you think.

“Service is not servitude … Service is not satisfying your customers because you have to please them. Instead, make your customers happy because you want to please them.”

I particularly like:

  2. Avoid Feature Creep: kind of a corollary to 1. More is not synonymous with better.
