Customer Experience Design

Swiss Education Group via FutureLearn Program


A recent study by Info Quest CRM shows that “a totally satisfied customer contributes 2.6 times as much revenue as a somewhat satisfied customer, and 14 times as much revenue as a somewhat dissatisfied customer.”

A positive customer experience is critical for business growth in a competitive industry. A happy customer is more likely to return, as well as promote you through word-of-mouth marketing – both key ways for increasing your revenue.

On this professional certificate, you’ll identify how to improve your customer experience design skills to help boost engagement and improve value creation.

You’ll learn how to move away from current stagnated industry strategies so you stand out to your customers with a personalised service that delivers high customer satisfaction.
