In many ways, today’s web marketers are like blindfolded shopkeepers. They might have a general understanding of their customers’ needs, based on site analytics and other data sources, but they do not see what their actual customers are doing across channels.

the more complete your customer vision, the greater the value
you can provide to them and the greater value they will deliver
to your bottom line.
