Providing a 360-Degree Customer Experience To a Massive Customer Base with C.H Robinson’s CCO, Chris O’Brien
Let's get into some marketing 101: Every marketer has some kind of base they market their products to. For example, if you’re in the market for a tire, Goodyear is probably on your radar. At Adobe, the marketing team attempts to appeal to customers who want to tap into their inner creative side. But what happens when you don’t have a defined customer base? What if your customer base is literally any business and every industry?
_“[We’re] dealing with every single industry out there. You're getting to see customers who are going through some of the biggest challenges from going global, and that drives activity and questions in the marketplace that we try to jump on and have better answers for. They're getting into new products and services, new markets, and they need to rely on us for our expertise about how to handle customs in any marketplace.”_
