- The Economy of the Next Fifty Years Will be Run by the Customer Experience - The days of begging for likes are over. The customer economy is all about doing likeable things.

So if your friends are looking for a restaurant in New York City, and you live there, it'll show them the places you hangout, automatically, because logic suggests that if you go there a lot, you like the place, and your friends usually like what you like. What does this mean for your business? It means that it's time to start focusing on the customer experience – Without that, no amount of advertising, marketing, or SEO will save you.
