Creating inspired experiences
Presented with a never-ending stream of seemingly disconnected data, experience management (XM) leaders often struggle to engage stakeholders and drive action.
But when you can layer video feedback—a way for customers to submit their opinions via video from wherever they are—on top of text feedback and quantitative data, you’re able to humanize the experience and build the kind of stakeholder empathy that results in real change. Here are three ways video feedback will enrich your XM program.
People want to be heard, yet barely half of them believe companies listen to their feedback and act on it. By giving consumers and employees the chance to share their candid, effective feedback in a video message, you’re allowing their voices to be heard and bringing more attention to their experiences.
And with self-serve capabilities, you’re able to script and launch your own video feedback surveys within your existing XM channels.
That means you can easily add video capabilities to:
Using an XM platform with video feedback capabilities can provide a completely flexible one-stop-shop for video feedback along with tools that makes it easier for brands to:
Just having video feedback available isn’t enough, and if you if you implement the option without strategy and intent, it will do little to raise engagement. To properly get the most potential from your video feedback program, you need to integrate the functionality actively into your customer or employee journeys.
Here are 4 best practices to help you seamlessly integrate video feedback into your XM strategy and successfully leverage insights for more meaningful change:
Prior to implementation, your team should assess how video capture will optimize your experience management program. Establishing this connection on the front end will help streamline feedback down the road and uncover richer insights quicker.
Start by answering these questions:
This shouldn’t require a major overhaul. Understand how video capture best fits into your XM strategy and establish clear-cut objectives that don’t disrupt current goals.
Standing up a new video solution with your current program can be tricky, but it doesn’t have to be. Your XM partner should be working alongside you, helping you uncover the most succinct way to integrate the tool.
Many major vendors include the capacity to bring in video feedback, but the strategy for bringing it into your existing XM plan is crucial. Engage with your experience management vendor about what capabilities for video feedback are available, and how they will partner with you on finding insights and putting those resulting insights into action. It’s important to work in partnership to strategically test, learn, and iterate different approaches over time while measuring program effectiveness.
With an insights-driven XM partner that combines best-in-class technology and professional services, you’ll have the support you need when maximizing your investment.
Now that you’ve figured out what you’re going to ask in your video feedback, the next question is when to ask. Since survey abandonment can be an issue and even the most well-constructed, engaging surveys are vulnerable to a distracted user, it’s always good practice to put your most important questions up front.
Additionally, the length of comments left in video feedback are typically 6–8x longer than responses collected in traditional feedback channels. By providing your video feedback option early in the survey, before any response fatigue sets in, you are most likely to receive the most thorough, honest input.
When customers use video to provide useful feedback, it adds a face to qualitative data that’s hard to ignore. By bringing customer feedback to life for employees, you’ll spur stakeholders to prioritize changes that can have an immediate impact on boosting revenue and reducing churn.
With video feedback technology, you’ll have the ability to search themes, explore sentiment, and stitch together showreels—driving empathy in your organization and enabling informed action.
