    Paul Tiedt | Jul 22, 2016
    If you’ve been paying attention to the customer experience (CX) industry over the last several years, you’ve probably noticed a seismic shift in the way brands are prioritizing their CX measurement initiatives. And if you’ve been paying attention to the marketplace, that really shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. That’s because today’s customers are more tech-savvy—they’re researching brands online, interacting across new touchpoints, and sharing their experiences on social.

  • Conquer the Survey Creep (by managing your survey length)

    SMG Insights | May 10, 2016
    There is a monster running loose in many customer experience (CX) programs. He is sneaky, sometimes pushy, but yet charming and evasive. He may be a force that has been present since the inception of your CX program and you don’t even realize he exists. He can attack by persuading you into a “yes” answer without you realizing it, or he can come pounding into your office and demand to get his way.
