How well do you really know your customer? Do you know what they want and need? Perhaps, one of the best things you can do for your business right now is to get to know your customer better. Consider that today.

As you aim to get to know your customer better, there are some critical questions to consider and answer.

  • What are their core needs?
  • Have their preferences shifted?
  • Has their consumption or repurchase rate slowed down? Why?

Currently, the market is very dynamic with customer preferences and needs changing regularly. Business owners need to stay abreast of these changes.

Perhaps it is time for a “temperature check” in your business. This could help grow sales and deepen customer satisfaction—especially if you are considering a new campaign or change in a business model. Make sure you check in with your customers.

Keep in mind, every customer is different too. The 80 / 20 rule is good to consider here. This is when 20% accounts for the majority of your sales (or more). Do some research here in your own business in order to get to know your customers better and improve your business success.

Let’s explore some next steps you can take today to get to know that customer better to enhance your business in the future.

First, dig into their buyer journey, their behavior, and mindset. Consider how they learn about new products. Maybe it is product reviews or ratings published online, or customer reviews posted on ecommerce sites. Maybe they subscribe to interest groups or browse sites that capture their imagination and favorite things.

Second, get inside their heads. Are they open to new things or are they more cautious? In most cases, consumers have multiple needs when they make purchase decisions. Consider those needs and then also consider the price value compared to competitive offerings.

Third, consider the emotional benefits that may play an equally important part in getting and keeping your core consumer in your franchise. What does your customer connect with—and how can you provide more of that to them?

If you haven’t gone on this journey in a while, you will likely gain new insights and learn new things about your customer—which is the core objective of this exercise!

There are multiple ways to actually gather this information. You could talk to a focus group. You could talk to individual customers. You could hold an executive meeting and brainstorm what everyone has heard from customers in the past three months. No matter how you gather it—use it to your business benefit!

Knowing what your customer wants and needs is critical to moving your business forward. The better you know your consumer, the stronger your revenues.

If there is a lot at stake, a second round of research may be needed to confirm that you have it right. Do you know your customer’s needs today? If not, consider that today!
