Beckie Epke's curator insight, May 13, 2014 11:08 PM

This article discussed the importance of consumer insights. Developing reliable insights from your consumers allows your product to appeal to your consumer, resulting in higher equity for your brand. This article discussed how there are three ‘laws’ to consumer insight. The first law discussed was doing is knowing, an interesting was of talking about qualitative research which companies carry out. Basically every idea is a physical experience and to understand and gain insight from consumers you must first discover the physical experiences on which they are built. The second law is, seeing is doing, but only if you have done it before. It described how consumers can have experiences through just seeing or hearing something, they don’t necessarily have to physically experience it to be able to experience it e.g. seeing an advert with a picture of a cold beer will take you back to your experience of having a cold beer. So you can gain a deep insight into your consumers ideas by sharing experiences you see them having, but only if you have had those experiences yourself. If you haven’t experienced drinking beer, then looking at an advert with a picture of beer will not trigger a past experience. The third law is without authentic experience, there can be no insight. This law basically discussed how the methods used today to develop insights are rarely accurate. When using methods like surveys and one on one interviews it is hard to understand the reasoning behind peoples answers, without knowing what experiences they have had to shape their answers. It is then predicted that gaining insight should be moved more towards using language of physical experiences, metaphors, narratives, role-play and visualization, which will bridge the gap between you and your customers. This is really interesting, as we learn the positives and negatives of qualitative and quantitative research into consumer insights, it may also be interesting to see how carrying out research through experiences would compare.
