I mentioned to an acquaintance that I was heading out for vacation next week, including taking a week away from writing. He responded by going on and on about respect for readers of this blog, for customers, for those I tweet, etc. “Disrespectful!” As in “How dare you take time away and show these people such little respect?”

Um, what?

So, to sate the few appetites of those who read this blog regularly and the other passersby who discovered it today, I decided to provide a reading list of sorts of the greatest hits. Ok, not really, but here are a few items from the archives I thought you might enjoy about customer experience.

Happy reading.

What Is Customer Experience and Why Do I Care?

This is one of my personal favorites, because it involves me flashing a badge: Customer Experience Investigator

If you ever talk with me in person, I’m sure I’ll use the phrase “holistic customer experience” at some point. I’m sure it’s annoying, but it sums up a big part of my philosophy. Holistic Customer Experience

User Experience Issues

Reviewing the archives, I realized I complain a lot about user experience. I’ll try to get better at writing about good ones. But, for now, here are some posts about the bad and ugly side of online experience.

Usability v. User Experience


Communications as Customer Strategy

Apparently, I’m Andy Rooney. I complain a lot. What is it about communications? Why are they handled so poorly?

Communications is Customer Experience

Communication is important internally, too. No, really, it is.
