CX Tip – Offer ‘Behind-the-Scenes’ Insights

Recently, I visited a five-star restaurant where we were given the opportunity to sit by the kitchen. This area featured a window that allowed us to observe the meal preparation process. The experience was as good as the food itself, providing my wife and me with an amazing behind-the-scenes insight into the culinary process. Transparency and authenticity have become more than just buzzwords in CX.  They are now key differentiators. Offering customers ‘behind-the-scenes’ insights into a company’s operations, culture and values fosters trust and transparency and it also strengthens the emotional connection customers have with a brand.  Behind-the-scenes insights should be an important part of your CX Toolbox.

The Power of Behind-the-Scenes Content

Opening up the inner workings of your company to the public can be a game-changer in how customers perceive and interact with your brand. This transparency can be achieved through various mediums:

Social Media Channels: Platforms like Instagram, Facebook, and LinkedIn offer an excellent way to showcase your company culture and day-to-day operations. Regular posts featuring employee stories, office events, or production processes humanize your brand and build a community around shared values.

Blog Posts: In-depth articles about your business processes, success stories, challenges, and the people behind your products or services can provide valuable insights to customers, enhancing their understanding and appreciation of your brand.

Virtual Tours: Offering virtual tours of your offices, factories, or any other aspect of your operations can provide an immersive experience, making customers feel like a part of your journey.

Benefits of Offering Behind-the-Scenes Insights

Increased Customer Engagement: Customers feel more connected and engaged with brands that are open and transparent about their processes and values.

Building Trust and Credibility: Transparency in operations and values helps in building trust, a crucial element in customer loyalty and retention.

Differentiation in the Market: Giving customers a unique view of your company can differentiate your brand in a competitive market.

Employee Advocacy: When employees are featured in behind-the-scenes content, it not only boosts their morale but also turns them into brand advocates.

Implementing a Behind-the-Scenes Strategy

  • Identify Key Aspects to Showcase: Determine what aspects of your company would be most interesting or valuable to your customers.
  • Be Authentic: Authenticity is key. Ensure that the content reflects the true nature of your business.
  • Consistent Communication: Regularly update your behind-the-scenes content to keep customers engaged and informed.
  • Involve Your Team: Encourage employees to participate and share their stories, making the content more relatable and diverse.

Offering behind-the-scenes insights is a powerful tool in your CX Toolbox. It not only enhances customer engagement and trust but also humanizes your brand, creating a deeper, more meaningful connection with your customers. The brands that open their doors and let customers peek inside are the ones that can build lasting relationships with their customers and gain their loyalty.
