It offered tips on building a digital experience: the key to digital marketing success begins with a clearly defined strategy that sets the scope of workflow, design of communication channels and visual design to keep customers coming back, and the creation of digital channels that are effective in gaining consumer insights in the digital age, together with system management and evaluation for continuous system improvement.

Mr. Hironari Tomioka, President and Chief Executive Officer at NTT DATA (Thailand) Co., Ltd., stated that organizations and brands across the globe, including in Thailand, are battling three digital marketing challenges, which include:
1) Competition to create experience and values for customers - Organizations need to gain better insights into individual expectations to strengthen customer relationships and remain competitive in the market.
2) Faster customer decision-making – Organizations and brands need access to and an in-depth understanding of their customer’s data, and fastness and real-time are of the essence. To achieve this, they need appropriate tools to enable data collection across marketing channels and data precision.
3) Maintaining customer loyalty – To keep customers returning to their products or services, organizations and brands need to transform data into knowledge as fast as possible and translate it into practice.
According to NTT DATA’s recent research report Innovation Index report, 66% of executives treat customer satisfaction as a top priority, and 60% of organizations that have developed mobile applications say they see value in improving customer experiences.
Improving Digital Experiences is a key factor for digital marketing success and is essential for business these days. It helps organizations make sense of customer behavior through every digital channel, from building a brand, product and service awareness, decision-making, purchases, and customer retention to customer loyalty. To develop a variety of digital channels to enhance one’s ability to improve customer experiences, one needs to evaluate the performance of each marketing channel to analyze operating performance. The data collected should also be used to analyze consumer behavior to develop marketing strategies. Organizations and brands must clearly set out their plans, objectives and goals for online marketing to measure the impacts of digital channels on their business. This will enable them to make an informed decision on which digital channels to invest in that will be most effective and give the highest returns. However, based on our experience working with leading companies globally, we found that the key to providing customer service and improving digital experiences lies in “put your customers first, and technology second” added Mr. Hironari.
