Whoever works in Marketing knows the basic principle: the customer is king. That does not only apply before and during the process of customer communication, but also after you sold your product or service to the customer. After the start of the pandemic two years ago, companies had to deal with financial difficulties and the related drop of customers. For those reasons, businesses started to recognize the importance of the customer experience throughout all channels.

Engaging with customers post-sale is just as important as establishing new customers relations. Furthermore, it is just as challenging if not even more challenging because at this point you need to prove what you promised to the customer. This makes the difference between a one-time buyer or a long-term customer. Additionally, developing a good content marketing strategy will establish brand loyalty which makes it more likely for customers to “spread the word” about what you offer.
