“You know, we’ve been taking pictures for 2 years and they’re all sitting on his damn computer!! This digital camera is ruining my life”
“Moments of Truth” is an Ogilvy Brand Stewardship tool that identifies “make it or break it” interaction points between a brand and its consumers
“Why is he asking me about an operating system? I don’t even know what that is. I need my husband to come in and talk to the salesperson.” Maria
“A person who does not want to deal with the computer should not buy a digital camera... There is no reason not to learn [how to use] the computer.’” Specialty Camera Salesman with Maria
“When I got my digital camera, I thought ‘Yeah … I finally got it!’. Then I left in in the box for two months. I just didn’t feel like learning to use something new and read the whole manual.
“I feel like I need to get smart enough about memory, resolution and all that so I can have an on-par discussion with my husband.”
12) Final purchase: It all comes together! Select the camera and kit, buy it.
6) Enter store: Like the store, still excited, look around for cameras and sales associate.
1) Trigger: Desire for DSC triggered. Customer starts looking into DSCs.
7) At the shelf: Range is overwhelming. Shelf is hard to read. Peripherals not nearby. Look for help.
Potential Customer Bonding
13) Anticlimax: Relief sets in. Leave camera in box – can hardly bear to look at it.
2) Pre-research: Feeling confident about research process. Gather inserts, speak to friends.
11) Return to store: Go with back-up.
5) Preparing for store visit: Expectations shoot up. Compile list of questions.
8) Talk to sales associate: talks foreign language, does not answer questions, is ill-informed or patronizing. Consumer feels stupid and patronized.
3) Start research: Discover research is a much bigger, more complex process than anticipated.
10) Taking back control.
Potential Customer Check-out
9) Exit store: Feel demotivated, angry, frustrated, or alienated. Either Drop out, Go Back to Step 4,or ‘Refocus’ and go on.
4) In research: ‘Go round in circles’ with research as they gain a little ground, then encounter a setback. May last extended period of time.
