Do you remember the last time you were in contact directly with a brand? How did you feel? Did you feel special? Unique? Entertained? Amused? Was this experience useful? Fantastic? Personalized?
There are many ways for companies to provide experiences that go beyond selling the products they make. Take Apple and iTunes. Apple was selling computers and they decided to create a platform where clients of Macs could store, buy and share music. This was such a huge move back then. And Apple became even closer to its consumers.
Another example is the Hilton Hotels. Through a platform, guests that have the loyalty membership access a full range of personalized services such as online check-in and a choice of preferred room. In fact, this is now a very common practice amongst service companies.
Clothing companies are also embracing the trend. Men and women can buy clothing directly online without having to go to stores. The main benefit is to be able to try the clothes at home, anytime, and easily return them if they do not like them.
These examples show that being in direct connection with a company provides great benefits to people. Thanks to technology, these services exist and make our lives easier, more fun – just richer.
