One of the biggest mistakes businesses make is thinking they know enough of their customers.
It’s like a website, businesses create it based on the features that want it to have but don’t think about what the actual users want. It’s not about what makes you happy, it’s what makes your customers happy. This is what’s called being customer focused and it’s at the core of Amazon’s business strategy.
Obsessing about your customer means you need to ‘get into your customer’s skin’, you must become them and make their frustrations your own. In the online world this means extracting insights from website analytics and tools that let you know what’s happening beyond your website.
In the offline world this means using the power of observation. Mix these two together and you have a great way to get deep insights into unarticulated needs.
Let’s say you have a restaurant and your goal is to improve the overall customer experience. You start by asking yourself:
How do I make a restaurant better? Where do we start?
