Treat Customer Data Like You’d Want Yours to Be Treated

Last Christmas, I bought a friend of mine a subscription to a science and culture magazine. She had discovered the magazine during downtime at work, so she was delighted when they started showing up at her door. The gift was a hit, despite the fact that I’d misspelled her name. But then other magazines offers started to arrive in the mail. Then came requests for donations from charitable groups. Next, travel agency ads. And then came the political mailers. Once she activated her digital subscrip...

These ad execs have a venture fund they’d like to sell you

Mike Duda comes from the world of advertising. In fact, he spent 13 years at the renowned ad agency Deutsch, becoming the youngest partner in the company’s history until another creative, Brent Vartan, came along and stole the title. Little wonder that in 2010, when Duda struck out on his own to create Bullish (formerly known as Consigliere Brand Capital), he stole Vartan, later making him the firm’s second managing partner. It isn’t that the two wanted to outgun their former employer exactly. I...

UT Business students are fighting snakes with memes. Here’s why.

By: Sarah BloodworthSnakes infested UT-Austin’s McCombs School of Business last year, at least according to memes. The joke comparing businesspeople to greedy, competitive snakes seemed to slither into every post on the UT-Meme Facebook page and Twitter. The Black Sheep Online even posted guide to “The Different Types of Snakes in McCombs.”Perhaps the characterization of businesspeople as snakes generated from the McCombs holiday decoration controversy, but the millennial view of declining bus...

Peter Principle (in Startups)

Is it true? The Peter principle states that “every employee tends to rise to his level of incompetence”. If someone is good at her job, she’ll be promoted into a job that demands different skills. If she’s good at the new job too, she’ll be promoted again, requiring yet another set of skills. One day, she will arrive at a job for which she is wholly unsuited, and there she will stick. Since when did a manager ever get sacked for anything?The Peter Principle is satire: it mocks managemen...

These Two Important Elements Make Up Your Company Culture

By David Pierce We’ve all experienced it: walking into a place of business and, within a few seconds, having that “feeling.” It’s the feeling of uncomfortableness that resonates from the employees—the scowling, unfriendly, “why are you here?” feeling. You can see it in their eyes, in their body language, and hear it in their tone of voice. The place actually feels like there’s a storm cloud in the room. And then there are the times you walk into a business and feel so welcomed, that you have to ...

Sixty-two percent of companies viewed CX delivered by contact centers as a competitive differentiator, Deloitte found.
