2 Is Your CMS Ready for CXM? 7 Recommendations 2 Is your CMS ready for CXM? 7 Recommendations Customer Experience Management (CXM) is a hot topic in today s boardrooms. Organizations now realize the digital disruption of today s empowered connected consumer is not a threat, but an opportunity for them to understand and to engage their customers like never before. Your opportunity to engage is no longer limited to your company website. Contemporary marketing requires a mastery of social, rich media, local and global microsites. By using the insight gained from all the data at their fingertips, today s marketers can orchestrate this multi-channel engagement, crafting highly targeted campaigns and relevant, personalized digital experiences. Your customers experiences are driven by content. To make the experience personal, you need to create multiple versions of your message to speak to specific audience segments, on the device of their choice and in their own language. Within many organizations, fulfilling this need for relevant, localized, targeted content has created a content explosion. The primary enterprise systems that can bring order to this chaos are the web content management systems that now sleepily publish web pages, often to static brochureware websites. What if we can get more from these systems? What should we ask from a contemporary content management system (CMS) in order to support CXM? Your content whether it s a white paper, a video, an infographic, a blog or even a tweet should make a great first and lasting impression. It should give your prospects and customers what they need, not what you think sounds good. Stefanie Stahl, Head of Content Marketing, UBM Tech Every two days now we create as much information as we did from the dawn of civilization up until Eric Schmidt, Google CEO This paper explores seven critical content management and delivery capabilities that can both provide a contemporary customer experience and meet strategic business requirements.

3 Is Your CMS Ready for CXM? 7 Recommendations 3 Customer Experience: What is it anyway? Your brand is defined by the sum of all experiences your customers have with you at every touch point from awareness, discovery, attraction, interaction and purchase, through to use, cultivation and advocacy. Customer Experience Management (CXM) means truly engaging with customers and providing them with a relevant, consistent and immersive experience.. CXM is your differentiator.

4 Is Your CMS Ready for CXM? 7 Recommendations 4 1 Your CMS should drive rich media engagement According to Internet Retailer, 52 percent of consumers say that watching product videos makes them more confident in online purchase decisions. Video is now a critical part of a consumer s digital experience, providing a compelling experience that gets their attention and which now is an essential part of buying decisions. YouTube is full of unboxing videos where people share their first experience of a product, typically consumer electronics, but the value of video is not limited to B2C brands. Whether you sell robots to car manufacturers and want to show them at work, or are a software vendor sharing customer testimonials, video is an essential weapon in the battle for your messagesaturated, time-poor customer. Marketers want to maximize their visitors engagement, enabling them to interact with the video itself through overlays and interactivity elements. Managing video places special demands on the organization s content operations, with large files requiring re-sizing and optimization for varying consumer device capabilities. In addition, it is often difficult to localize video without considerable post editing expense. A CMS ready for CXM needs to efficiently manage video, creating and managing the variants needed to support consistent cross-device experiences. It needs to provide interactivity and it needs to support the localization of layovers, voiceovers and subtitles.

5 Is Your CMS Ready for CXM? 7 Recommendations 5 2 Your CMS should engage your visitor across multiple web channels In a broad range of organizations, managing multiple websites is a fact of life not just those titans of consumer packaged goods with multiple brands and products being marketed in multiple geographies in hundreds of languages. Today s B2B and B2C organizations equally share the challenge of geographically diverse, experience hungry, convenience driven customers. The disruption to traditional marketing means that a contemporary multi-site web strategy is far more than brochureware sites in another language. Instead, it includes self-service extranets, social sites, audience-specific sites, partner/distributor sites and blogs. Many of these channels share some basic content, like terms and conditions, legal statements and branding, and are also a part of a network of common shared content. While this seems like an obvious need that content management systems already solve, the ability to manage content across many websites varies drastically between content management systems, since each site is often managed as a content silo, sharing little to no content directly. Today, consumers and the social media expect organizations to provide a uniform experience. Marketers no longer have time to change multiple sites and channels one by one. Instead, they need to update them across the board with a single click. A CMS ready for CXM needs to be able to manage content forward and not page backwards, meaning that content can be created once and easily deployed and reused in many places. A web page is just one of many potential destination outlets.

6 Is Your CMS Ready for CXM? 7 Recommendations 6 3 Your CMS should take your brand global and stay local The need to be global, but act local, is a paradox that exists in many global organizations. On the one hand, there are brand components that through significant promotional investment in branding define an organization and must be strictly and consistently maintained to restate that brand identify, qualities and positioning. Logos, brand colors and user experience consistency are great examples of the things that are controlled centrally, but must be shared across a global matrix of local websites, product microsites and business unit portals. A central marketer needs to control these things, rebrand when necessary and reflect any changes throughout the company s web properties. On the other hand, relevant engagement starts with being local. In addition to addressing audiences in the right language, real engagement entails localization that takes into account local context and culture. This may include local regulatory and legislative environments, nuance, cultural norms, local product variants, and local market and competitive conditions. Organizations therefore need to balance giving their marketers enough local autonomy to be relevant, while ensuring global consistency and commitment to the brand. A CMS ready for CXM needs to be able to simply manage the complexity of these different layers of content inheritance, sharing and governance. It must also enable central brand teams to disseminate mandatory brand elements, content and its translation, while allowing local teams to create and manage their own local variants.

7 Is Your CMS Ready for CXM? 7 Recommendations 7 4 Your CMS should engage your visitor with relevant content Call it personalization, relevant content or contextual content, a compelling customer experience hinges on the right content, delivered to the right visitor, adapted to their delivery channel of choice - whether a desktop web application, smartphone, Facebook or even . Content Management Systems often face two primary problems with this scenario. The first is managing content in a way that allows you to easily repurpose it. Too many systems have a web page centric view of content management. Content stored in a big page container for a desktop web world. In fact, real content repurposing requires content broken down into components and assembled to create an experience appropriate for a specific visitor on a specific device and channel. The next problem is that once you have broken the content down and created context-appropriate variants, how do you manage these versions? For example, how do you manage a localized version for the visitor s region, a version of navigation for a smartphone, or a special promotional homepage for existing customers. How do you ensure that when the English version changes, someone changes the French Canadian version of the same content? Aside from a content management problem or two, this scenario also presents an issue for content delivery. Many content management systems are left floundering when it comes to simply recognizing the visitor context and delivering the right content to them. A CMS ready for CXM needs to be able to efficiently manage multiple variants of content components, not pages, and then assemble them as a relevant experience, based on the visitor s context.

8 Is Your CMS Ready for CXM? 7 Recommendations 8 5 Your CMS should easily connect to the enterprise A small team of marketers can no longer satisfy the extreme needs for relevant, targeted content for customers that expect a richer conversation with an organization. Today s customer wants real engagement, not just sales pitches and marketing messages. Customers buying decisions are now based on product details that are not in the brochure, the connection they have with an engineer that posts technical details in a forum, or a look through the online owner s manual. Often organizations have these nuggets of content that are priceless to the this consumer locked away in various departments, in Document Management Systems, SharePoint, Digital Asset Management systems and shared cloud drives, like DropBox. Enterprises seeking solutions should keep in mind that a 21st-century view of integration doesn t focus on the technology, but rather on the business design needs. Digital customer experience decision-makers should ask themselves how their current solution portfolio compares with a potential digital experience platform when it comes to delivering digital business design capabilities David Aponovich and Mark Grannan in Market Overview: Digital Customer Experience Delivery Platforms, Forrester Research, November 2013 A CMS ready for CXM needs to be connected with the enterprise, it needs to be able to access these repositories, to provide connectors that seamlessly expose the silos of content to web operations and ultimately to the visitor.

9 Is Your CMS Ready for CXM? 7 Recommendations 9 6 Your CMS should intelligently deliver to mobile Responsive design has solved the mobile problem. Websites can now consistently display correctly on every single device, one size fits all, with some simple code and this is all a marketer needs. Or is there more to it? The fact the visitor is on a mobile device might be a critical piece of information that informs the experience you want to present them. For example, if your visitor is on the move when they access your mobile site, and typically look for the nearest service center, it makes sense to adapt the web experience for not only screen size, but also to provide a top navigation link, using the phone s GPS, to point the visitor to the closest location. This simple act can significantly improve the experience. Knowledge about how, when and where your customers engage with you on a mobile device means that this experience requires intelligence that extends beyond a website on a small screen. A mobile device provides context and opportunity that a desktop web experience can never provide. Native functionality combined with action-oriented mobile use means the opportunity is actionable. How about if a retailer knew that a consumer was accessing the web from within their store? This kind of intelligent delivery doesn t come from responsive design. It comes from fine-tuning the mobile experience to customer context. A CMS ready for CXM needs to be the brains behind intelligent responsive design, powering experiences that are based around the entire context of the visitor and not just assuming they want to engage with your website on a smaller screen.

10 Is Your CMS Ready for CXM? 7 Recommendations 10 7 Your CMS should help you orchestrate collaboration across teams In this e-book, we ve established that CXM makes significant demand on content production and delivery to engage with the digital-savvy customer in their channel and location of choice for a relevant experience. Now, digital marketers and their faithful webmasters can create the critical path that places this content in the hands of the customer; a consumer who no longer just wants to speak to sales and marketing through the website, but now wants to interact with the engineers behind a product, subject matter experts and peers through a plethora of digital channels. Content management needs to democratize the content creation and publication process to now allow the right people across the organization to contribute to satisfying these new customer expectations. What does this require from a CMS? Three things: 1. Tools that are intuitive, easy-to-use and familiar 2. A governance, permission and workflow framework so authors are free to create, preview and experiment 3. Appropriate approval processes to provide quality checks prior to publication Beyond the simple workflow process you associate with a press release, this requires a workflow that groups campaign assets, manages translations and coordinates approval and publishing. A CMS ready for CXM needs to be able to democratize the content creation and publication process, for a bigger pipeline of relevant content from a broader range of authors, within an appropriate governance and permission model that provides a framework for this creativity.

11 Is Your CMS Ready for CXM? 7 Recommendations 11 A CMS ready for CXM: Drives rich media. Efficiently manage video, creating and managing the variants needed to support consistent cross-device experiences. It needs to provide interactivity and it needs to support the localization of layovers, voiceovers and subtitles. Engages your visitor across multiple web channels. Manage content forward and not page backwards, meaning that content can be created once and easily deployed and reused in many places. A web page is just one of many potential destination outlets. Takes your brand global while supporting local. Manage the complexity of different layers of content inheritance, sharing and governance simply. Engages visitors with relevant content. Efficiently manage multiple variants of content components, rather than pages, and assemble them as a relevant experience, based on visitor context. Easily connects to the enterprise. Connected with the enterprise, the CMS accesses the many content repositories, providing connectors that seamlessly expose, and thereby remove, the content silos to web operations, and ultimately to the visitor. Intelligently delivers to mobile. Power experiences based on the visitor s context beyond just your website on a smaller screen. Orchestrates collaboration across teams. Democratize content creation and publication for a bigger, more relevant content pipeline from a broader range of authors, while providing an appropriate governance and permission model.
