Get 5 Best Practices to Boost Your Customer Listening

While focus groups are useful for some types of market research, they are costly and you won’t hear from all participants equally. This is why we tend to prefer recorded customer interviews. 

With Interviews, each respondent has the chance to contribute equally and they can answer questions when it’s convenient for them. Plus, interviews are less expensive and you’ll hear from more customers. So, if you are thinking about doing a focus group, you owe it to yourself to find out what interviews can do for you.
