4. What does your brand mean to them?

5. What is their experience of your offer?

Customer Experience is the total sum of all the interactions a customer has with the product/brand across all channels over time – it’s a dynamic experience with a defined end result.

6. How do they segment into types?

Your customers are not all the same; individually they buy for different reasons and not always the ones that you expect. Your customer is not defined by what they buy, they are defined by who they are – so understand the person, understand the customer.
