The next CX shift has begun. Are you ready?

Customer experience, or CX, has begun to shift in a way that may well spell your company’s future success. While many small businesses continue to try to compete on price alone, it has become evident that CX is now a determining factor with regard to whether brands will remain competitive. As customer behavior continues to morph, it can be challenging to know what is working and what is not working. In some recently published research by Techjury, the CX shift is laid bare so that small businesses can begin to prepare for a stronger future. The following is taken directly from that published research:
