Don’t Neglect Your Brand: The Impact of Language on the Customer Journey

When people think about the various elements that make up a brand’s identity, they normally jump right to the more obvious, outward-facing elements. Naturally, a company’s logo matters a great deal for recognition – it should be on your website, your business cards, your physical building, etc. The color scheme you use in your marketing materials would fall under the same basic umbrella.

But there’s also so much more to a brand’s identity than people realize, with language being perhaps at the top of that list. The word choices that your employees make in every interaction they have with a customer absolutely affect how someone perceives the business they represent. That’s why, if you haven’t already started to pay close attention to language as you work to improve the customer journey, now would be an excellent time to start.

Building a Stronger Identity, One Interaction at a Time

Think about all the different ways that language comes into play when a customer has an interaction with your business.

If they have a question that they can’t find the answer to themselves, they’re likely to pick up the phone and give you a call. How someone answers the phone is an instant reflection of your organization.

The right cheerful, helpful greeting conveys a sense that your business cares about this customer’s needs. It helps to build loyalty. It creates a satisfying experience. It moves them further down the line towards a purchase.

The wrong language choice does the exact opposite – it pushes that person away instead of bringing them in. If a representative answers the phone and sounds annoyed or inconvenienced, that customer is probably going to hang up and try to find someone who actually wants to help them.

The same is true for how someone responds to emails, chats, and even text messages.

This is why, at Tyme Global, we always adapt our offerings to become true brand ambassadors for your business in every sense of the term.

Tyme Global: Taking Your Hospitality Staffing Solutions to the Next Level

At Tyme Global, we’ve dedicated ourselves to helping organizations like yours provide exceptional service for over a decade. But when you’re talking about remote staffing solutions, it’s imperative to understand that you need more than just someone to answer the phone when a person has a question or concern.

You need solutions – both human and technology-based – that are a true representation of your brand. Your customer service solutions should use the same language and rely on all the same techniques that your in-house employees do. In the end, absolutely every interaction that someone has with your business should feel like it’s born out of the same place. Whether your brand is relaxed, upscale, exclusive, etc. the all businesses have the same basic desire to help create an exceptional customer experience.

You can’t get to that point without paying careful attention to language and the ways in which it impacts your larger brand. If you don’t already have a brand voice guide, Tyme Global is happy to help build one!
