What is Customer Experience(CX) ?
Social Media brand comments represent a large and valuable source for CX insights.
CX are internal and personal responses of customers to a brand or service either
through direct usage or relationships with brand representatives and communications
CX is customers positive or negative feedback regarding how well the brands promise
is fulfilled through this experience.
CX often contains reviews of
Product or brand performance
The satisfaction with services and its delivery
Other aspects of the brand promise, including value, reliability, brand loyalty and the degree of
personal attachment to a brand.

Youve got to start with the customer experience
and work back toward the technology not the other way around.
~ Steve Jobs

We collect hundred of thousands of brand-experiential commentsacross
social media channels. These are parsed into distinct content themes.
These content themes define what brands meanto customers.

Your brand is what people say
about you when youre not in the room.

comments. We convert these texts to a metric called the SEItm

Digital & traditional media contributes 16%, promotions 7.8% and direct marketing 5.6%.
The six SEI/CX drivers account for 18 percent of total sales, the largest contributor among the groups.
The SEI values here represent the monetization of Alphas CX.
Embedded within the SEI/CX is the essence and value of Alphas brand promise to customers.

While Alphas strong values of Convenience and Value showed positive year-over-year gains, the remaining were substantially negative.
Menu and Food Quality are clearly the weakest factors and must be a priority for resolution in the next year.

SEItm also has a positive and negative component. Net is the difference. While convenience is Alphas strengths, food quality and the menu have the highest relative negative ratings and clearly signal an area in which Alpha needs to improve.

We can map detailed SEI content into a competitive map to see where Alpha compares to key competitors. We see that, in the words of customers, Alphas advantage is in convenience but not so much on food-quality, service and delivery.
For the case study restaurant brand, analysis underscored that traditional strategies of focusing only on
improving efficiencies in their drive-through and online ordering was not sufficient to drive growth.
Our SEI analysis reveals that (1) service, (2) value, (3) delivery, (4) convenience, (5) food quality and (6)
menu form the underlying SEI drivers and comprise the brand promise that Alpha presents to its
customers, from which they give direct feedback on how theyre performing on these. By ignoring menu
diversity and improving food quality, they were driving customers to competition and generating a serious
decline in sales.
The company launched a massive new ad campaign. This campaign has a mea culpa message. They
admitted directly to customers that they had ignored and lost their way on product quality and their menu
was substandard. They told customers directly that they were launching a massive effort to improve their
menu, product quality and the ingredients in their food.
One year later, Alpha turned its business around from negative growth to positive sales gains.
Measuring the Customer-Brand Experience with SEItm reveals this to
be a significant driver across many businesses
Lesson: Brands can not ignore the
importance of measuring and tracking
It is central to a firms aspiration to be
customer centric & explains why
business is underperforming and what
needs to be done when things go wrong
