Integrating UX design into marketing and brand strategies generate a viable and impactful connection between a brand and consumer. Shifting the focus to the user when developing a conceptual framework for marketing and branding collaboratively connect a brand, user, and customer experience together.
A consumer has a multitude of options that influence purchasing decisions. Gone are the days of just a few resources and outlets to buy a product, but now an overwhelming number of providers for multiple different products. Take a task like grocery shopping. Today, a consumer is presented with so many options from traditional grocery store trips, online pick-up, meal prepped subscriptions and meal delivery services. By creating a brand that speaks directly to a consumer is what builds relationships that continuously brings them back for that product or service to create brand loyalty in the midst of all these options.
“To succeed in today’s hyper-competitive environment, consumer products companies need to employ greater speed and agility to out-maneuver the competition. Because, in a world where consumers are increasingly blurring the lines between online and offline shopping, go-to-market models are evolving fast.” – The future of Customer Engagement and Commerce

Identifying the user journey and purchasing patterns work together with marketing and branding. Creating meaningful content, impactful messaging and personalized experiences are what create successful user experience.
