Developing Actionable Customer Insights for Effective Brand Management (Half Day)

(Half Day Workshop)

The most effective marketing is built on a firm foundation of customer insight. True insight into our customers’ mindset means going beyond raw data and rational information to find the underlying emotional needs that drive behavior. Today as brands compete to establish their unique space in the market, having a deep understanding of customers is a competitive edge that can help you drive a truly customer centric brand experience. 

This workshop is designed to help marketers develop actionable insights that will drive successful marketing programs. During the session you will learn about how to get the most from the research and data available inside your company, to create insights that matter. We will cover the principles of insight led marketing; how to gather data; finding the essential human truth about your customers; effective segmentation; and how to implement an insight led approach within your organization. We will use the Customer Insight Tool throughout the program which will give you a framework for developing your insights and something to take back to your day job.

This is an interactive program with ample exercises that will allow you to build your skills and practice insight led marketing. You will work with others on case studies and group exercises and each module is packed with insightful examples.
