For many it was the overwhelming feeling of GDPR panic. For others, it was a growing hunger for leads. And there were those who encountered mounting pressure from their management teams to evidence ROI amidst economic uncertainty.
2018 was a tough year for marketers, with more plates to spin than ever before. But could these challenges be the reason that some took their eyes off the ball when it came to the customer experience (CX)?

So, if the people behind these sites think they’ve got all bases covered when it comes to understanding and interacting with their visitors, they’ll soon be terribly disappointed as engagement will be low.
