Garden Connect’s Edwin Meijer asks: Do you know how your customers are making purchase decisions?

Oct 27, 2016

The answer to this might seem simple. Consumers are buying plants from you because you’re giving them good, upfront advice, you have an outstanding garden furniture showroom or your Christmas displays are the best in your area. I don’t want to argue about this but it’s a bit too simplistic. GFK did a survey among consumers and how they made their purchase decisions, what resources they used and why they bought products. This survey is a very valuable source and can help you to make better decisions in regards to your marketing. So, first of all, how does the customer journey…
