1. Using data to inform micro-moments

Micro-moments occur when people reflexively turn to a device—increasingly a smartphone—to act on a need to learn something, do something, discover something, watch something, or buy something. They are intent-rich moments when decisions are made and preferences shaped.

Data plays a big role in informing these moments and brands have been using them to improve touch points with the customers. There is a lot of data around us, all over the place, the difficult task is to drive helpful insights out of the data.

Remember that behind every data point is a real customer. Micro-moments becomes an opportunity to communicate with the customer. Show them we are hearing them, paying attention to them and building curated experiences for them.

2. Designing micro-moments online will become a commodity

Designing moments will become easier in the future and physical stores will need to adopt.

3. The emergence of active micro-moments

Touch points will materialize in real time based on how the user has interacted with the brand. This concept is referred to as active micro-moments and organizations need to understand it in order to keep up with their customer’s needs.
