There was a time when owning a business with a physical location gave you an edge. The consumer had more confidence buying from a store in a brick and mortar building because they knew they could walk in to view items before purchase, to walk right back with returns, and never had to worry about where to find you for someone to talk with face to face.
Well, those days are long-gone.

In ‘interested’, we’ve got the attention of a potential customer, and they've signed up to our email list, but they haven't made a purchase yet. Our job is to reel them in so we capture that first sale.
In ‘enagaged’, our customers have already made a purchase, and the mission is to keep them engaged with our brand, so they continue buying over and over.
We don’t always have the time or money to spend analyzing those critical pieces of data that lets us know the ideal ways to improve our customer experience.
