Don’t Let Volatile Markets Scare You Away From Customer Experience Investments []
If you like horror shows, forget The Walking Dead and check out global markets: In 2016, US stocks got off to their worst start ever. Harley Manning tells us why panicking and cutting CX budgets is a terrible idea because CX is the greatest potential source of competitive advantage — especially in times of high market volatility. Saying that CX leaders grow revenue 3x faster than CX laggards and superior CX drives customer loyalty and purchase intent. This is good advice for the cautious spender.

Why Mobile First Is No Longer Enough; It’s Time To Think About Mobile Only Design []
We would not expect anything but the best insights and trend advice from Brian Solis and he doesn't disappoint in his latest blog post. As he says, for the last few years, “mobile first!” has become the mantra among savvy digital marketers. But a mobile first approach seems to be more of an ideology than it is a standard in digital design. Recent research shows that marketers still invest in mobile as an afterthought or as a bolt on to more mainstream digital programs. For some reason, executives still need more convincing to properly fund and support mobile initiatives that span the entire customer journey not just pieces of it. Now it is time to think about mobile only design, says Solis. What do you think?
