With talks of a second wave of COVID-19 hitting South African shores, there’s another second wave that businesses should be taking note of… digital transformation. Whilst many might seem fearful and almost resistant towards it, it poses several perks for those looking to stay ahead of the pack. If you haven’t already, here’s why you should factor digital transformation into your business’ strategy.
Almost everything has gone digital… which is where you’ll find many of your customers too
From books to music and even shopping, most things have migrated to the digital stage. Whilst they’ll never totally overtake their traditional counterparts, future generations could possibly remain reliant of digital services and products.
We can learn a great deal from digital interactions
The most incredible thing about digital is the information we gain from its use. Thanks to the availability of data, businesses can decipher key insights on their customers. This means using these analytics to drive better service delivery and more relevant product offerings.
They take brands and businesses into the future
To become and remain successful, businesses ought to embrace the platforms that offer them the most longevity. If current trends are anything to go by, a digital presence provides relevance and a place in the lives of their customers. It also ensures that they’ll be around for longer than those who fail to embrace digital technology and its power.
It enables us to communicate more freely
In the past, customers would need to call a customer care line or even visit a physical store in order for contact to occur. Today, brands get a front-row seat in the lives of consumers through social media and online services that drive meaningful engagements and keep them going too. This can be used for customer service queries, sales, market research and even brand awareness.
Keep track of competitors
Following the digital presence of your competitors is a great way to see what products they’re offering and what communication they’re putting out to their audience. This allows any business the chance to tweak their own strategy in a way that will place them ahead of the competition. It also keeps brands on their toes and constantly innovating, which is beneficial for industries and economies as a whole.
