That way you can react to what they want quicker’.<br />‘Part of our marketing strategy is to work out the value of our different customers and market to them accordingly’.<br />‘Of course building a brand is important, but we like to try to do that at the individual customer level – just by providing a good service’<br /><ul><li>‘We let customers pick and choose what they want for their money, even within one product – we have to or we’d be left behind’
