Based on the best branding agencies' experience throughout history, these brands allure them with rapports, and we know the word rapport according to Oxford Dictionary: "Rapport is a close and harmonious relationship in which the people or groups concerned understand each other's feelings or ideas and communicate well," implies that the connection should be same way as human rapport works: Powerful, unforgettable, emotional connections that create the foundations for a sustainable brand loyalty.

Want to Build More TRUST - Build a Better JOURNEY

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 07:32:07 -0500

Being well entrenched in the Digital/Internet Revolution we are in today, one thing has become more important and paramount than ever before in history... TRUST. The other name for this period of time we are in is "The Customer Revolution"... and for the same reasons. If your customers don't trust you, you are at high risk of extinction in the not too distant future. TRUST has become the ultimate prize for businesses today. If your customer's trust you, they are choosing to work with you over anyone else in your industry... even if they have to pay a higher price. And one of the biggest reasons Trust is so critical to people is because of TIME. As I have talked about in several earlier posts, Time is the most valuable asset for people today (according to Forrester Research and others). People don't feel they have enough of it and they can't afford to waste it. Those that can help them keep more of their time are more trusted and become the winners in the new Revolution. This is a HUGE COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE for businesses today.

It's important to keep in touch regularly with your network to stay top of mind. And the best way to do this is with a warm letter.



Do Your Customers Scream TRUST or DISTRUST About Your Company?

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 13:24:35 -0500

Trust is possibly the most powerful word an organization can have today. Either you have it with your customers (and employees) or you don't. It isn't something that works on a "meter" where you have 60% trust and 40% distrust. And once you have it, you can make it stronger and deeper once you have established it with your customers. But organizations that aren't trusted also communicate this very clearly to their customers... and customers respond to it in many different ways. When a customer has their first interaction with your business (doesn't have to be a purchase) what is communicated during that "moment of truth" with them? Is it an interaction that causes them to feel like they can trust you or one that creates uncertainty and doubt about whether they can trust your organization? This is a critical question for every business to answer. Change the TRUST EQUATION and you will see some incredible rewards for your business. And the biggest area you can change to create this impact is your CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE. Once they see you truly care about them... even OBSESS OVER THEM you will see a marked difference in their level of trust.

"FREE" Is the Ultimate Brand Erosion Strategy - 5 Reasons and an Opportunity

Tue, 20 Sep 2016 08:00:22 -0500

When someone offers something for FREE, there are lots of things that happen... most of which end up destroying your brand. But for those that take a different approach, there is tremendous opportunity to capture a much bigger market and solidify your BRAND. Building "Brand Awareness" is about introducing new people (potential customers) to your brand... allowing them to see that you exist in the marketplace. It is an attraction strategy... one filled with education and excitement for a potential customer. It is about sharing with them something within your business that can help them improve their lives (or business) they didn't know about before. It's getting the word out to an audience you know you can help. It is NOT about FREE. To me, FREE is a "lazy marketing" way of building Brand Awareness. It's easy... offer anything of value for FREE and you will attract people like a magnet. This isn't rocket science or strategic marketing... it's just easy and doesn't take a lot of expertise. Do we really need a marketing department to do this for us? There are 5 key issues with offering FREE that can ultimately result in BRAND EROSION...

Your BRAND Is EVERYTHING - Protect It at ALL COSTS

CUSTOMER OBSESSION Isn't a "Buzzword"- It's a WAY OF LIFE

Mon, 29 Aug 2016 07:57:21 -0500

Being customer obsessed isn't something you do... It's who you are! I get asked all the time what a "Customer Obsessed Project" might look like for a particular company... this translates to, "I don't really get Customer Obsession." Projects have "start and end dates"... being Customer Obsessed never ends... it is you new WAY OF LIFE. CUSTOMER OBSESSION isn't like doing a customer satisfaction survey where you decide to collect some information and then you are finished. It also isn't like starting and stopping some "customer campaign" where you are going to do something nice for your customer. And it certainly isn't a "thank you" event to tell your customers how much you appreciate them... one time a year. And what would change if you created a CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE that was truly incredible and remarkable for your customers, designed completely with the in mind so your customers would say, "WOW, I always feel incredible and very special whenever I interact with anyone in your company, regardless of whether I am inquiring, buying, or complaining... you rock!!" This is all about CULTURE... the culture you want in your company.

Why Marketing, Agencies, and Other Models Don't Work Today

Thu, 25 Aug 2016 13:37:42 -0500

TRUST... let me be a bit more specific... LACK OF TRUST. "Trust" has always been a "golden word" but today it has been elevated even more due to the massive (and easy) means of communication. The biggest reason is not because we don't have Trust but because of all the... wait for it... MISTRUST that is being generated in the market. Social media has simply accelerated what has always been there... only now we are seeing it in massive amounts since it is so easy to communicate anything we want... a lot. Today we find ourselves in the "Trust Economy." Trust has become the "currency" by which people will spend or reward a business... if you have lots of trust you get lots of people's currency. Without trust you find yourself scrambling to be just another commodity and compete on price. Here's the bottom line... as a business leader/owner, ask yourself one hard question, "Are we creating and building TRUST with our audience(s) or are we destroying and eroding the TRUST of these audiences."

Stop ENVYING Your Competitors and Win Big

Mon, 01 Aug 2016 09:52:25 -0500

ENVY by definition means you are chasing something... wanting to be like something else. This has become a mainstay in businesses today... "We want to be like ABC Company only better." When you can stop this thinking and action, you can put yourself on a path to real success that others will envy! Copying someone else means you think they are either better or have something you don't have... and you want to be just like them in a particular area. But copying someone also means COMMODITIZATION... regardless of your products or services. Becoming a commodity says you do the same things as your competition... only you try to do it faster, cheaper, or somewhat better. In today's Internet Economy, more and more companies are being commoditized and trying to "one up" each other to move to the top of the heap. I believe this is a LOSERS GAME. There is an alternative... forget about ENVYING YOUR COMPETITION and DO SOMETHING ENTIRELY DIFFERENT from them.

There's NOTHING You Can't Get, EXCEPT ME

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 10:18:40 -0500

Information is FREE... it's available everywhere... there is a massive amount of it on every topic in the world available at your fingertips. So why do you need me... or why do I need you? But what we do need more of is YOU... your INSIGHTS... your PERSPECTIVE... your PERSONALITY... your EXPERIENCE with the products and services that will help us make better use of these and help all of us SAVE MORE TIME. This is what we need more of... but for some reason it is hard to get... it's just easier for marketing to "spin the information" in different ways and tell us it's different. This is something not everyone can get or has... only you! This is why we don't need more of the same information spun around 50 different ways... WE NEED YOU! You are the "secret sauce" that gives us value and helps change the way we do business or how we can improve our lives. YOU are the one that can bridge the gap between the mass of information. YOU are the one that can help us get on a straight path instead of wandering around trying to figure it out.

Wed, 13 Jul 2016 12:38:04 -0500

The era of marketing and selling FEATURES is dead. Since leaving the Industrial Revolution behind and welcoming in the Internet Revolution, "features" have become a COMMODITY. We don't need you to give me the features any longer... I can find them out on my own. If I can't see how purchasing and using your product will help me feel (pick one or more from the list), why would I buy it? Why would I purchase something based on your FEATURES if I can't see how it will "transform" me into something I want to become? The very best companies focus on how using their product or service will MAKE YOU FEEL. They spend the time to help transform me into a different place... seeing myself as being better than I was before I used their product or service. This transformation is what helps you achieve your dreams, realize greater potential, and move to higher levels because you used their product or service. And who doesn't want to feel this way.
