Customer Insights: Blueprint for Generating actionable insights

We regularly ask our new clients what it was that made them seek us out. And although it's never the exact same answer, it is centred around a common theme of "how do we give ourselves the confidence that we are focused on the right business drivers to achieve growth".

It also comes in the form of other questions like:

A recent research study across 800 internal research buyers provided similar insights.

43% of people tasked with improving the customer experience in their organisation, voted that their favourite thing about research "was to make decisions with better evidence".

32% or almost 1/3 of respondents voted that it brought the voice of the customer to their they could all make better decisions.

Or in even simpler terms, 75% of all respondents believed Customer Research when done well, helped them make better business decisions.

This raised some questions that we should all being asking ourselves:

Things like:

This is where lots of times, we hear leaders say " But we know what our customers want".

At a surface level that's largely right. But so do your competitors. Everyone knows at a high level the big rocks for customers. "On time, in full, good price, no surprises...etc...

Tell me who isn't working on those obvious "needs"?

And that's what the best companies do well, that win in the arena of customer experience. They don't leave winning to chance and they inform all their key decisions with data from their most valuable advisers - their customers.

They understand at a much deeper level why their customers use their product or service and what role it fills in their life.

They use this insight to understand their customers' needs, validate early-stage solutions and bring the voice of the customer into the business so...everyone can make better more informed business decisions.

And from that follows stronger growth, increased retention and less confusion and much more clarity and confidence in our work ....and a better experience for your customers.
