A Marketing Moment: Inspiration for Today’s Marketers

We’ve heard it time and again, but do we really put ourselves in the place of our customers?

“The golden rule for every business man is this: ‘Put yourself in your customer’s place.'”

Orison Swett Marden

Questions to ask yourself

  1. Spend some time with your team discussing their view on the customer experience. What is working? What is broken?

  3. Do you invite customer input or feedback? How?
  4. How can you go undercover as a customer in your business?
    – Call Customer Service
    Send an email from a different account
    – Order a product as a different person
    – Ask a friend to go into your place of business and report back to you
    What was your experience?
  5. What 3 things need to be changed about your customer’s experience?
