“It’s about working out how to balance and prioritise investment right across our communications, advertising, digital and the physical experience… Simple to say, much harder to do.”

Global Head of Brand Marketing Communications, E.ON

In 2018 we identified the Experience Gap – a growing disconnect between what brands promise their customers and what they actually deliver.

We demonstrated that failure to close the gap is costing brands $millions each year. And we highlighted that it’s not enough to be ‘good enough’ – consumers demand that brands deliver outstanding experiences regardless of sector.

We’ve unpicked the ways these gaps differ and designed solutions to help brands tackle the factors that contribute to their own, unique Experience Gaps. And we’ve interviewed more than 35 CMOs, CCOs, CEOs and CX specialists from a variety of brands around the world, to expand our knowledge of the ways in which brands are Closing the Experience Gap.
