Do Your Customers "Feel" You?


It’s worth noting when an urban colloquialism slides into the mainstream. ‘Do you feel me’ has become the “word-stingy” way to find out if the listener can truly empathize with what you’re saying; the abbreviated form of “do you really understand where I’m at?”  It’s being asked more and more often when someone wants to connect on a deeper level. It’s what we all desire... proof that we’re being considered.  We forget the conversations that are surface but remember the ones that made us feel something.  It’s also a question that customers are asking today’s businesses... and likewise, a question we should be asking our customers.

Do You Know What Sweet Sounds Like?


Pay attention and you’ll realize how our senses work together.  It’s evident in conversations.   A candy bar, a car, a deal or a song might all be labeled as ‘sweet’.  An insult is ‘cold’, an unloving individual ‘frigid’.  Tell someone you’re feeling blue and they understand your mood.  When Olympic snowboarders defy the laws of physics with moves that make most of us cringe, we hear descriptions that include ‘tasty’ and ‘sick’.  These abnormal applications of adjectives and adverbs have been happening for a long time.  We know that what we see and what we hear are actually intimately connected...and we’re learning how even sound and smell come together.

Sensory Marketing and the Customer Experience

As the customer experience phenomena continues to redefine the way businesses deliver services, marketing professionals throughout every industry leave no stone unturned in their search for a more personal approach. They realize that customers no longer gauge service quality exclusively by comparing businesses that provide the same products and services. Today, companies are measured against any and every business that constructs and delivers an exceptional customer experience. Unless we’re listening to the innovators within the customer experience arena we’ll find ourselves wondering how we missed the mark. The Experience Marketing Association is taking careful aim and paying close attention.
