Why ‘Customer First’ Fails – And What to do About it.

Most marketing talk, or business strategy meetings, emphasizes the importance of ‘customer first’. Yet if we take a look at companies, and how they operate, the HIPPO or C-Level exec are still calling the shots, without paying heed to the needs and wants of the customer. You can see this online where a website uses terminology that the average person simply can’t understand. Or when a design is simply the result of a bunch of executives deciding what they ‘think’ their customer wants.

Even when companies embrace a customer first methodology in their organizations and on their websites, sometimes, the way they tap into customer voice, doesn’t give them the right result. So what to do?

In this session you will learn:

  1. How to conduct proper qualitative research to tap into the customer voice more effectively
  2. How to pair quantitative and qualitative research for a more global understanding of the customer journey
  3. How to use what you’ve collected to design a website and voice that addresses the real motivations, needs, and wants of your customers.
