Workflow highlight: Turn user interviews into user insights in seconds

User interviews delve into the user's personal experiences and challenges with a product or service. Engaging in one-on-one conversations helps uncover specific pain points and needs.

If you’re not interviewing customers or users you should consider doing so. Here’s why:

  • Better targeted marketing messaging: Learning more about your users helps you craft messaging that converts. Adapt go-to-market and growth strategies with user feedback and to target new users more effectively. 
  • Guide product development: The insights gained from user interviews can inform the design and development process. Build features users want, not those you think they want.

Turning your user interviews into actionable insights can be done in seconds with Bash. Check out our dedicated topic that walks you through the complete process.
