What is Customer Experience (CX)
In today’s age of the Internet, We (2Min Studio) have been reading about Customer Experience like a Star Trek journey which Businesses and blogs are talking about.
After reading what Businesses are talking about customer experience. We feel businesses are going far away from customers.
Customer Experience in simple words “How a brand or a company is engaging with a customer to solve the unfit jean or broken appliance or missed luggage on a flight and make the customer feel delighted”
Every customer will bring another customer based on the interaction of the first customer with the brand.

How Customers have emerged today?
Usage of the internet has bought a group of customers to talk to each other before buying a product or service.

Most of ’em are internet users and they are talking on different forums, on Twitter, in focus groups, and on social media. Today, customers have different platforms to voice out their problems.
When the support from a brand is broken or unheard, The co. could lose a potential customer bringing another customer. When heard and supported on time and solved the issue. The chances of the customer going away from the brand are lesser. The choice is with the brand and companies not with the customer.
Today customers have multiple options and on top of that there is an interesting story of a customer will talk about in the last segment
