Create a comfortable environment

Make an initial impression when conducting the perfect interview. You can start this by getting acquainted first, and then you can make small talk with your customers for a while and then continue with a question and answer session. When you can successfully create a comfortable atmosphere, they will automatically open, and indeed, you can obtain a lot of insight.

Try to get answers to the following questions when conducting customer interviews:

  • Who are your customers?
  • What are their habits?
  • When do they need your product?
  • Where do they need it?
  • Why do they need your product?
