You may as well ask, why are perceptions important? The need to find out what music fans are thinking has never been greater than it is today. This applies not only to the world of guitars and music. It is just as true in other areas of business and research.
Knowing what the visitors to our site think helps us maintain a powerful competitive edge. It helps us strengthen our performance, implement necessary changes to the site, acquire new products, and protects our future.
If we know what our visitors are thinking, it will allow us to focus our products and services to meet their needs, assiting us as we grow the business and build customer loyalty - not to mention awakening the sales potential in all those fans of music (and the guitar in particular) that are not already our customers.
