Adapt or fail: The shifting nature and evolution of customer identity

In the past, the customer journey was thought to be, or at least accepted as, primarily linear — meaning customers followed a predictable path to purchase over and over.  For example, an individual might see a commercial, research the product online and head into the store to purchase it. It was the same templated process for decades, though the awareness and research stages might have occurred through alternative channels. Brands advertised to prospects and customers in a similar fashion. After all, why would you deviate from the touch points where the customers were most likely to interact with you? And for decades this process (mostly) worked.
