It is well documented that consumer expectations have changed beyond recognition as a result of the pandemic. However, what is left unknown is our new definition of “normal.” It is yet to be fully defined.
Introducing the fifth edition of The Conversocial State of CX Trends Report 2021. In the report, we look to define what this normal looks like.
The data was gathered by polling over 2,000 consumers of all age groups, genders, and income brackets from the United States and the EU to provide as rich a data set as possible. Additionally, for this State of CX report, we asked over 100 of your corporate peers their strategic CX priorities for 2021.
The report looks to provide a comprehensive overview of how consumers communicate — or at least want to communicate — with your brand and allow you to benchmark where your corporate peers are focusing their efforts and budgets.
Throughout, we explore how high-performing companies provide experiences that keep customers returning and the best practices that separate the industry leaders from the rest. The results are summarized in this report
