Why Your Traditional Paper-First Processes Won’t Cut It at JCK

Strategies for Delivering an Exceptional Customer Experience at JCK

The JCK show is a goldmine of networking opportunities and connections. It is important for you to capture the information of the various connections you forge at the show, or else, what’s the point, right? It is equally important for you to deliver delightful customer experiences so that your prospective buyers are happy and excited to build a relationship with you. But how do you do it in the most efficient way possible? Is your current method of capturing information the way to go about it? Let us save you some time; it’s not! Let’s look at the areas where your manual system is failing you:

1. Capturing Information

JCK attracts more than 23,000 individual retailers, representing over 9,400 retail stores. That’s a huge number! Amidst countless interactions, spanning over 4 days, manually recording and organizing leads and visitor information can be a massive ordeal, not to mention a cumbersome process, highly prone to errors. When trying to take down all this information on pen and paper or via collecting business cards from visitors, you will inevitably find yourself bogged down by the sheer volume of data that needs to be transcribed, leading to delays and inaccuracies. You have your handwritten notes and paper-based systems, all of which increase the risk of human errors, and data loss is significant. Issues like illegible handwriting, misplaced documents, or accidental damage can result in crucial information being lost. This ends up impacting your ability to follow up on leads, resulting in lost opportunities.

2. Adding Buyer Notes

While jotting down basic contact information is feasible with pen and paper, capturing detailed contextual notes is far more difficult. Conversations at JCK are fast-paced and multifaceted, making it challenging to accurately record key details, such as product interests, pain points, or specific requirements. Without comprehensive notes, you risk losing valuable insights that could shape personalized follow-up strategies and strengthen relationships with leads. The result? You end up sending standardized follow-up emails that don’t add any value for the prospect, diminishing their experience and interest.

3. Qualifying Leads

Not all leads are created equal, and distinguishing between hot prospects and casual inquiries is crucial for prioritizing follow-up efforts effectively. With pen and paper, it’s challenging to implement a systematic process for qualifying leads based on predefined criteria. It is not possible to remember the specific details of each interaction or accurately assess a lead’s level of interest and purchasing intent. Because of a lack of standardized qualification, you will not be able to personalize your messages, or prioritize your hot leads, and you might even end up wasting resources on unqualified leads.

4. Lead Follow-Ups

Promptly following up with leads after a show is crucial for nurturing relationships and closing deals. However, the manual nature of this process can result in delays or missed opportunities, diminishing the impact of initial interactions. All of your exhibiting and networking efforts will be for nothing if you can’t forge a connection and nurture it to create sales opportunities. With manual processes, you miss out on the opportunity to follow up quickly enough to be top-of-mind and after that window closes, we don’t have to tell you, it’s a jungle. By the time you get around to following up, your prospect has lost interest and context and isn’t happy to engage with you.

Some buyers cancel their orders or discontinue their payment sources after the trade show if they aren’t nurtured well.

5. Catalog Management

Still carrying and distributing physical catalogs to your JCK exhibit? Come on! Do we really have to tell you about this one? Physical product catalogs are cumbersome and not environment-friendly. But most importantly, you can’t update and customize physical catalogs to meet varying client needs, resulting in an underwhelming customer experience. Moreover, for an industry like jewelry, where visual appeal is non-negotiable, paper catalogs just don’t do it anymore.

6. Prompt Order Confirmations

Imagine you are sending your customers invoices and order forms post-show and your customers don’t remember the interaction they had with you, never mind the products they liked and selected at the JCK show.

How can you fix this? Include product images in your invoices and order forms! This immediately jogs the memory of your buyer and they are not hesitant to go forward with your transaction. Your manual paper-first processes can’t enable this, affecting your customer’s experience. By sending product presentations and order forms instantly, you can get an on-the-spot confirmation for your orders as opposed to following up on orders days/weeks later by which time your customer has already forgotten ever placing an order with you.

A good strategy while following up is to send product presentations with price lists and relevant product variants as per your conversation with a prospect. This way, you showcase what the visitor already expressed interest in at the show. Noting down all this information with the interests and preferences of the customer is essentially impossible manually.
