I was also contemplating writing a bad review of that hotel but then decided they were not worth my time. The ot...

Shel Silverstein “The Voice” and Financial Freedom

How to create a buyer persona

No matter what you do for a living, you have customers.  And odds are you want more of them.  But every customer is not equally valuable to your business.  And every potential customer out there does not want to buy what you sell or buy it from you.

voice of the customer

A couple months ago, I cartooned about customer survey fatigue and the barrage of satisfaction surveys for every minor brand interaction. Marketers sometimes forget that the survey experience is as much a part of customer experience as the customer experience they’re designed to measure. Boring, long, or pestering surveys leave a brand impression too. "If marketing kept a diary, this would be it." - A...

Better enough

It’s entirely possible that you’re better. Better by some axis you’ve invented, fallen in love with and decided is the most important thing to be better at. But if people aren’t choosing you, talking about you, asking you for more… it’s either because you picked the wrong axis, or because you’re not better enough. Not better enough to be worth the fear and hassle and stress of switching for. Better’s not up to us. It’s up to those we seek to serve.

Voice messaging – conversational gain or pain?

The warmth of a call with the ease of a text – or just a time-wasting nuisance? Either way, they are the new chatTrawl through social media or simply have the misfortune to be friends with an early adopter of tech trends and you’ll see that the next big form of communication is upon us. It isn’t a brand new app or some strange semaphore. In some ways, it’s a throwback to the 1980s era of answering machines. “Voice messaging” – sending recorded voice messages to recipients using apps such as What...
