Cassio is responsible for sales, marketing, supply chain, customer services, and IT. In this discussion, Cassio talks about how he measures success in the Special leads Engagement Economy, how you can personalize the customer experience and the processes that SGI uses to ensure an engaging experience. What does the Engagement Economy mean to you? The Special leads concept of Engagement Economy very much resonates with me, especially the notion of “authentic” interactions.
I receive many “cold call emails” every day, none of which Special leads feel personalized or authentic, so I just ignore them. At SGI, we strive for engagements that are authentic, in the sense that they start with an investment of time and energy. We try to build credibility by what I call “adding value in between business transactions.” How do you measure success within the Engagement Special leads Economy? We leverage customer advisory councils as part of our customer engagement efforts.
We hold these at various “levels,” from C-level executives to technical Special leads users to IT administrators. We convene at major industry events or set up dedicated annual user conferences. Customers are interested in learning from each other, and we get to showcase our impressive list of loyal customers—a strong re-affirmation of our brand. If I were to synthesize Special leads the ultimate measure of successful customer engagement, I would say that the most important goal is to drive repeat business and capture customer loyalty.
