Why your audience is key to Customer Experience
By Keynote Speaker Marc Gordon
While customer experiences are measured by interactions, they can be influenced by static content such as interior design, colours, or in this case, signage.
On a recent trip to San Diego, I came across this sign in a local mall:
While it may be normal to local residents, as a Canadian, I found it both amusing and somewhat sad.
Why do people need to be told not to be disruptive or carry weapons? Is this considered normal behaviour?
But for me, the bigger picture is that those visiting this mall may in fact find this sign comforting as it sets the standards for behaviour. Which I think we can agree makes for a better experience for everyone.
My point is that how something can influence the customer experience can be different from one audience to another. A sign like this at a mall in Canada would likely cause concern or fear, resulting in many to stay away altogether. But in California, it results in peace of mind and a sense of security.
The takeaway? Understand who’s reading your content – marketing, policies, etc. And what mindset they might be in. Content and context need to work together to create a positive influence while still getting key information across.
