Understanding your audience
Darren Bentham - Southern Water

Version 1.0
What are customers’ primary motivations?
How do customers feel ?
 “A lot of people will be ringing their
MPs complaining. I don’t like being
forced to do anything!”
 “My mum had four children. She
had to do all [the washing] in a bath
because she didn’t have a washing
machine. That poor woman used to
just struggle. And I think if we start
slamming meters on people, these
poor ladies [with large families] are
going to go back to the dark ages.”
 “It will make it fair which I totally
agree with. But I will suffer!”
 “There’s got to be profit in it. No
company will do anything unless
they’re going to come out smiling at
the end of it.”
Focus on:
• Perceived benefits of metering
• Concerns about how metering
might affect bills
• Distrust about the reasons for
universal metering
• Annoyance about lack of
choice.
