Global Reviews recent Telco Digital Effectiveness study revealed that the two critical stages which cause customer frustration and abandonment are navigation and online purchase.
Telco brands in the UK are losing at the ‘online purchase’ stage, just as their ideal customers are about to buy from them.
Once again the basic needs of the customer are not being met at the ‘Online Purchase’ stage.
Best Practice: Carphone Warehouse and the need for a ‘consistent basket’
Carphone Warehouse was the top scorer for the ‘online purchase’ stage of the customer journey. Help is offered to the customer at every step of the online process. ‘What you will need’ at the checkout, encouragement to buy and also details about what you are buying are featured at every step of the process. The customer is reassured at every step of the process that they are buying the right thing.
A comprehensive FAQ section offers help and advice relating to the customers’ order, not just general help and FAQs.
