Coveted Customer Experience: How to Grow Your Business by Focusing on 3 Things Your Customers Truly Care About

You've heard it before. Over and over, in fact. "Improve your customer service." "Optimize the customer experience." But what does that even mean? Today, when your intersection points with your customers may number in the dozens (or even hundreds) tackling customer service or customer experience holistically is impossible. You can't magically get better at every customer touch point. But you CAN get better at the touch points that matter.

Talk Triggers: Turn Your Customers Into Your Ultimate Sales and Marketing Advantage

The best way to grow ANY business is for your customers to grow it for you. But that only occurs if you deliver a customer experience that creates conversations.
Word of mouth influences 50% of all purchases, but we too often take this for granted. We just assume that our customers will talk about us. But they won’t, unless you give them a story to tell. Jay teaches you how.

Hug Your Haters: Embrace Complaints and Keep Your Customers

Haters aren’t your problem … ignoring them is. If it feels like there are more complaints than ever, and that you’re spending more time and money dealing with negativity and backlash, you’re right. But the rise of customer complaints is actually an enormous opportunity. Jay teaches the critical steps necessary to retain and delight now that customer service is a spectator sport.

THREE DRAWBRIDGES How to Cross Your Customer's Moat of Attention

Today’s consumers are a wary bunch. After all, they’ve been through a lot. And approximately zero percent of customers are sitting quietly, secretly hoping for more brand-created content to be thrust upon them.

To win with content in today’s world, you have to fundamentally realign your thinking and your expectations. Instead of assuming your content will succeed, and trying to avoid mistakes that would cause failure, you now must assume your content will fail, and make CERTAIN you pass the three tests required for content lift-off. These tests are called the “Three Drawbridges of Content Success.” Your customers constantly have their hands on the levers, deciding when and whether to drop the bridges and let you in to their hearts, minds, and wallets.

This fast-paced and funny presentation will entertain you, inspire you, and scare you. Before this session ends, you’ll be scheduling a team meeting to rework your content marketing strategic plan!

Virtual Emcee and Event Host

Hall of Fame keynote speaker Jay Baer is also an in-demand emcee for complex, multi-day events, and has hosted events for IBM, Oracle and many other major brands for audiences as large as 15,000 attendees.
