    As a business person who makes a living marketing and selling your products and services, you wind up making a lot of requests of others, don’t you? Read this… Click here… Share this… Buy this… Sometimes they cheerfully do what you ask, sometimes they reluctantly do what you ask, sometimes they ignore you, and other times they tell you to insert your request into certain uncomfortable places where “the sun don’t shine.” And that’s all fine and dandy, right? It’s part of the game and a normal part of daily life for an entrepreneurial spirit such as…
  • Three Ways Cheap SEO Can Ruin Your Google Ranking

    24 Sep 2014 | 6:50 am
    A few days ago we decided to do some research to judge the potential take-up on a course we’re offering to small business. Now we know that small business owners don’t have much time, but we also know they don’t have much money so we think have an answer. However, our research pointed to some SEO companies offering VERY cheap SEO. Given everything that’s gone on with Google lately, can they actually still be doing this? I was sent a link… The link I had been sent advertised quarterly SEO work for less than forty quid, including VAT. Wow. Their website said that…

Several models exist for content marketing maturity models that essentially define four phases: chaos, tactical, strategic and monetization. Most, however, offer little insight into the core competencies required at each phase.

    You know what frustrates me? When I hear otherwise smart entrepreneurs say things like, “I would never pay for Facebook ads, they don’t work.” And “Why aren’t I getting more leads on Facebook? No one sees my offers!” Think about it. You know Facebook has become a “pay to play” network for businesses. You own and run and business. You’ve put a lot of time and energy into building your Facebook page. You know only a small percent of the people who’ve liked your page ever see your content. So what do you do? Give up?

  • Don’t Confuse Content Marketing and Thought Leadership

    Kevin Lynch
    13 Oct 2014 | 9:36 am
    The tsunami of social platforms and networks for sharing content has greatly expanded the opportunity for “thought leaders” to spread their gospel. But has this proliferation of information provided clarity or is it simply more noise than substance? I believe the jury is still out. Confusion over the difference between thought leadership and content marketing is part of the problem. Too often the terms are used synonymously. Although similar, they have distinct roles in the content ecosystem. True thought leadership needs to take the long view on topics and issues.  It’s typically not…

Managing an organization’s content can make you feel like you are standing in the midst of a vortex: a swirl of demands, authors and topics that draws everything into its path, assuming all of its energy.

Luckily, there is a solution: content strategy. Content strategy organizes the…

    Why Employee Advocacy and Evangelism Works – A Real Story With coffee in hand one morning, I started the painful daily task of cleaning out my inbox. In the mix of stuff was an email from the airline I have flown almost exclusively for the last eight years and it changed the course of my entire day. The news regarding my loyalty program wasn’t good. It was the last straw in a growing pile of frustrating changes that I refused to be trapped under anymore. I went from “I love you”, to “OK I’ll hang in there”, to “We are breaking up!” in the last two years. After verifying…

    Beyond the PDF: The Case for Content Innovation B2B content strategy has evolved significantly in the past few years with leading brands considering the information needs of the multiple decision-makers in the buying center. They create faceted content roadmaps that consider the different context, format preferences, level of detail and influences for each topic for each person in the buying center. Gone are the days when the company selling to another enterprise can cram all the information into a single white paper and offer a gated PDF for download. Instead, brands need to consider new…

    If you’ve worked in the world of the internet at any point in the past few years, there is a good chance you’ve heard of the hot new technology that is HTML5, and there is a similarly good chance that what you’ve heard is largely hype and buzzwords. While HTML5 does offer a great deal of flashy new technologies to the web toolbelt, there are subtle and more significant aspects which often go unnoticed. Before we get into that, though, let’s brush up on some HTML history. In the beginning, there was text Up until the early 1990s, the web was largely text based. There…

  • Google to Localize Call Extensions. Hurrah?

    Timothy Johnson
    21 Oct 2014 | 8:30 am
    Starting in early November, Google will allow advertisers to use local area codes in their call extensions that utilize Google forwarding numbers.  Previously, you had two options: use your own number and lose the ability to track calls in AdWords, or use an (866) forwarding number randomly assigned to your ads. With this new feature, local advertisers will get the added benefit of call tracking while keeping the friendly feel of a local area code number in the search results. How do I set it up? Easy! Google will automatically transition all eligible local phone numbers where available.

    Link profile maintenance is an unavoidable, recurring task important to the health of your website. Even if you haven’t done anything shady in the past, it is well worth it to pop open the links pointing to your site in Google Webmaster Tools to find out what Google is looking at in regards to your site’s links. Now, if you received a penalty message, the time is nigh to detect and squash the bad links. Either way, reviewing links for preventive measures or a penalty is much the same: look for patterns or negative aspects of external linking domains. The first step is to pull link data…

Growing up as a camper, then a camp counselor, and now a trainer of counselors has taught me many lessons.  The parallels of working with sixth grade campers to working with marketing…

  • Slashing journalism won’t bring new readers, more revenue to newspapers

    Greg Collier
    14 Oct 2014 | 6:25 am
    Nearly 20 years after the Internet became a thorn in the side of newspapers, the old-school print industry continues to take steps to soften the blow that the Web has had on its business model. The problem is that newspapers, as part of their effort to become one with the digital side of news, keep making the same mistake. They keep chopping the journalism side of the business, the side that creates the original content that keeps visitors – and the eyeballs for their ads – clicking on their sites. This time around, it’s the mighty New York Times that’s slashing newsroom jobs…
  • NFL Under Fire: What Happens after the Buck Stops?

    Greg Collier
    23 Sep 2014 | 4:24 am
    For sake of full disclosure, I’m a big fan of NFL football – the rivalries, the loyalty of the fans, the final-second plays that lead to victories and upsets. What I’m not a fan of is the off-the-field behavior that has dominated headlines early in this season. In a league as large as the NFL, there’s bound to be a few bad seeds in the bunch. But the gravity of these allegations – domestic abuse, child abuse, sexual assault and more – have put a spotlight on the NFL’s inability to control bad behavior. Sure, the league issued fines and suspensions – but for the…

    Any business owner needs to stay ahead of the trends, and unfortunately, that applies to trends in crime. I’ve said before in blog posts and TV interviews that we don’t carry personals because they can be used as a front for prostitution and human trafficking. We don’t carry pet sale ads, as they often trade in animals that have been bred through puppy mills—breeders who literally breed animals to death, leaving them undernourished and caged without proper exercise or loving contact. We simply won’t even take a chance at supporting criminal industries, so we don’t run the ads that…
  • The Boss Always Answers to Someone – Even in Professional Sports

    Greg Collier
    6 May 2014 | 6:37 am
    I sometimes hear people say, with a tone of envy in their voices, about how great it must be to own a company, to be the boss, to call all the shots and not have to answer to anyone. Those perceptions of what life as the boss is like – especially that last one about not having to answer to anyone – are kind of funny to me, largely because, at some point, we all answer to someone. As the owner of a small business, I’m the one who makes the business decisions for Geebo. But in reality, I’m far from being the one who calls the shots. The customers – whether they’re the…
  • Risky Business: Watch for Business Models that Boost the Bottom Line but Tarnish the Reputation

    Greg Collier
    14 Apr 2014 | 12:30 pm
    There’s an interesting debate going on in San Francisco with Airbnb, where a crackdown on short-term rentals – especially those being advertised on online sites like Airbnb – are leading to lease violations and eviction notices. The site, Airbnb, connects people looking to make a few bucks by renting out space in their own homes with visitors who are looking to save a few bucks by using alternative accommodations when they pop into a city for a short visit. It’s kind of like they’re hotel rooms, except that they’re not. They’re residential homes and apartments. And in…

    The most important part of your website is your value proposition. Find out how to communicate it in words and images. Too often, we confuse our tag line with our value proposition.

Famous value propositions include Zappos’ “365 day return policy and we pay shipping both ways.” Warby Parker offers “Order up to 5 of our vintage-style sunglasses.

    So you want a WordPress website? Now it’s time to buy a domain and hosting. Your domain is like the address on your house, and hosting is the lot that contains the house. It’s the physical space where your website files sit on a physical server that’s connected to the internet 24/7. By purchasing hosting service, you’re essentially renting space on these machines along with a staff of people to monitor the machines, make repairs, support customers, and assure the servers are running and connected to the internet as much as possible.

Your domain is your address, or the house numbers on the front of your house. Hosting is the location where your house sits. You need to have a domain to tell the world where your website lives. You need to have hosting to house the actual website.

    22 Oct 2014 | 7:49 am
    I was first introduced to solar energy in the movie, Race the Sun with James Belushi and Halley Berry in the lead. It was a story about low- income and under achieving Hawaiian students encouraged by their teacher to join the Solar Car race. In the movie, a car shaped like a cockroach and covered with solar panels used the sun’s rays as an alternative energy source to run the car. Solar energy is the light and the heat from the sun.

  • Why Lists Are Facebook’s Secret Weapon

    John Danenbarger
    20 Oct 2014 | 9:41 am
    Traffic isn’t what matters to me. It’s engagement by people who will be in a place to possibly buy (or influence) cloud computing usage in the future. So CEOs, CTOs, developers, press, are huge in my world. They are almost wholly on Facebook…. This is why I regularly get business deals through Facebook, but not through Google+. The people who matter to me and the business I work for just aren’t there, for the most part. That’s Robert Scoble weighing in on Facebook’s superiority over Google+ in a fascinating discussion on social media expert Joel Comm’s Facebook page.

    Do you remember Google Wave? It was supposed to be the search giant’s real time messaging platform, a way for people to stay in touch easily and all the time. Or something like that. No one was ever quite sure what it was for or what it was supposed to do. It launched in May 2009 and in August 2010, Google announced that Wave was no longer being developed. It might have been the privacy snafus that killed it, but it might also have been the lack of clarity, the complex features and the general lack of demand. Even big companies make mistakes. Even firms with as clear an understanding of…

    One neat little trick on Facebook’s pages is the “Pages to Watch” feature. You can see how well other pages are doing in comparison to your own. You’ll see the total number of page likes, the number of new page likes since the previous week, the number of posts they’ve made recently and the amount of engagement those posts have generated. It can be a pretty galling experience. You might think that your battles against Edgerank are the same as everyone else’s, which your low reach and minimal engagement are a result of Facebook pushing harder for page owners to pay for boosts.

But there’s one method being used on Facebook that’s highly effective, is helping businesses, is making money for the owners of Facebook pages — and Facebook, so far at least, is choosing to ignore it. The strategy is a little trick that makes use of video content, by far the most effective form of content on Facebook.

Apparently, “people won’t search for their technical products on a mobile device”. I could have left it there, but I hate assumptions. Especially when it comes to marketing. So we checked his analytics and found out that almost a third of the current visitors to his site viewed it on a mobile or tablet. “Oh, that’s interesting..” Yeah, it is interesting.

However, our research pointed to some SEO companies offering VERY cheap SEO. Given everything that’s gone on with Google lately, can they actually still be doing this?

It’s a daunting task, but these five essentials can help turn it from impossible to possible. 1. Data Any real-time initiative is steeped in data. Data, such as the figures obtained with social monitoring tools, show you what’s happening in the here and now. You can assess what’s popular. You can tell when audience perception shifts for good or ill and respond accordingly. In addition, you can…
  • 9 Traits of an Uber-Effective PR Pro in 2015

    23 Oct 2014 | 8:45 am
    Sometimes it feels like the world is in free fall. The public relations industry is evolving and things we’ve been trained to do as traditional PR professionals appear to be less important than they once were. Do you ever find yourself wondering which traits and skill sets are really important? Of course you do. We all do. Whether you’re planning to graduate next year, fresh out of school or someone who has worked in public relations for (what feels like) centuries, almost everyone is feeling a little anxious about what they need to know to be truly successful in 2015. Take heart. We have…
  • 3 Reasons You Shouldn’t Be an Early Adopter

    Erin Feldman
    23 Oct 2014 | 4:45 am
    Ello, the much talked-about social network of late, has left many of us wondering if we should invest time in the site and, if we should, how to get into it. The site is invitation-only, so unless we know someone who knows someone, we’re pretty much stuck on the sidelines. That may not be such a bad thing. Let’s be early adopters! Early adopters always are lauded – after the fact. Their success rate isn’t exactly known, but it’s safe to assume they miss more than they hit. While being an early adopter may have its advantages, the truth is that we can’t all be one. We don’t have…
  • Twitter Chats: Manage the Overwhelm and Make Strong Connections!

    Allen Mireles
    22 Oct 2014 | 8:45 am
    Does Twitter feel really noisy to you? Kind of like a firehose of information turned up full and blasting you in the face? You may be struggling with a case of Twitter Overwhelm. Twitter overwhelm is very real. For many, especially new users, Twitter’s speed, volume and required brevity make participation daunting, which can be problematic for PR’s. Although, as of January 2014, only 19 percent of online adults use Twitter, according to Pew Research Center, Twitter is an invaluable resource for public relations professionals. “Twitter is one of the best resources to stay on top of…

    Marketing and public relations go together like peanut butter and jelly. With the right strategy, they can both make the other more effective (and tasty!). If you’re currently using content marketing, consider tying in your PR efforts (and vice versa) for maximum results. Consult Your Calendar Likely you know several months in advance some of the major PR events you have for the year, like your annual donation to charity around Christmas or participation in a community event. Paying attention to what news is coming down the line can provide you with ample fodder for your content. Let’s…

    Derek Denholm
    8 Oct 2014 | 3:31 pm
    OK, technically, we can’t connect a particular tweet or blog post with someone who got out of hospital with a clean bill of health. Still, our marketing efforts have helped Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation raise hundreds of thousands of dollars over the course of many big community events. That money helps purchase hospital equipment used to treat thousands of patients in the community hospital serving the Tri-Cities area in Vancouver’s Lower Mainland. We started volunteering with the ERHF a while back because we believe in giving back. Soon after we started working with them, it became…
  • Digital PR. Killing the Old Media Gatekeepers Softly

    Derek Denholm
    1 Oct 2014 | 11:02 am
    If the dawn of the Internet age gave newspaper editors a headache, the ubiquity of smartphones and mobile devices is giving them a guillotine-worthy sore neck. The cull continues this week, with major newsprint entity Transcontinental throwing 20 more newspaper operations onto the funeral pyre. For marketers, this is the end of an era for traditional PR, where pitching the editors, or old media gatekeepers, was all that mattered. These days, it’s much harder to justify a media spend on print (and to a lesser extent, radio and television); you’re promised exposure to 100,000 or 200,000 or…

    Even after so many success stories for companies using social media to build brand and get more customers, some companies are still skeptical. Sure, Coca Cola and Old Spice can create amazing campaigns garnering millions of “Likes” and impressive boosts in sales. But what about the small to medium-sized business that doesn’t have a million dollar creative budget with a dozen well-paid brand ambassadors to get the word out? Small companies and even startups can still compete, but they do have to get creative with their engagement. In just a few months, Karma Collective built its business…

    SEO (search engine optimization) as a tactic is becoming ever more important to the lead generation efforts of national franchises, regional franchise ad coops, and multi-unit businesses. However, it’s important that if you’re seeking franchise SEO services from an agency that you understand the two general areas those services can fall under and the differences between them: Traditional SEO, and Local SEO.And as you are most likely aware, or are quickly becoming aware of, SEO is a vital component of any franchise marketing strategy.

First, the site vows never to sell information about its members to advertisers or to allow ads to appear in its network. Second, this idea of an ad-free social media experience has resonated strongly with the public, resulting in a record number of people requesting to join the new site.

Most often these ‘others’ are customers who review your company’s products and services on sites such as Yelp, Home Advisor, Judy’s Book, Trip Advisor and Google+ Local. Some sites — Open Table, Zagat and Urban Spoon, for instance — review only a single type of business, in this case, restaurants.

They access their accounts and stay connected through every device imaginable, ranging from desktops and laptops to tablets and mobile phones. Social media platforms are used by people in every walk of life. Middle-aged adults use them to stay in touch with old high school and college buddies. Businesses use them to advertise their products and…

  • Are You Outsourcing The Social Aspects of Your New Business Efforts?

    25 Oct 2014 | 4:00 am
    One of the more common sentiments shared at Social Shake-Up in Atlanta – and a personal cause of mine – was the advice not to outsource your social media and customer relations communications to a third party. In other words, don’t ask your agency to do the talking for you. As skilled as social organization may be, we really shouldn’t be doing it for you. Why? Because the relationships you have with your prospects are important. In fact, those relationships are what will keep your business in business for years to come. Having a finger on the pulse of your most important buyers, and…

    Sometimes, you come across a marketing concept so simple and effective you wonder why everyone didn’t think of it ages and ages ago. I know I’m certainly not the only person who’s gotten that impression from Bryan Kramer, who spoke at Social Shake-Up in Atlanta. Bryan argues that traditional marketing categories (like business-to-business and business-to-consumer) are not only misleading, but actually problematic. They get it all wrong because communication – and especially communicating via social media – isn’t about the traditional B2B channels or B2C synergy… it’s about…

    The Collaborative Economy – a keynote at Social Shake-Up with Jeremiah Owyang – left an unexpected impression on me that’s had me thinking for weeks. Jeremiah’s idea isn’t complicated: that people and businesses are getting together to fund, share, and promote new ways of doing things, and that’s changing the way businesses and industries work. The longer-term implications are less straightforward, though... For example, how many of us could have predicted the rise of crowd-funding, where long lists of small donors fund and launch projects that might not…

While reading level is always a consideration, I’ll be the first to admit it’s something I don’t focus on too heavily, in favour of fluidity and authentic thought flow. That may be changing, though, thanks to a presentation I watched at Social Shake-Up by Ira Haberman of Atomic Reach.

    If you’ve been to a major conference recently, chances are you’ve been scanned. Most conference badges now come equipped with QR codes that allow attendees with smartphones to scan your badge and capture your contact information. This often happens when you have a discussion with someone at a booth or in exchange for a giveaway. Other people may ask to scan you if you just look their way as they try to fill their ‘scan quota.’ Technology has changed marketing dramatically over the last twenty years and now it’s even changing the way we interact in person.

Given the size of the affiliate channel (it currently accounts for 10-20% of online sales), there is shockingly little content out there for marketers looking to maximize their affiliate marketing efforts.

The article focused on the important issue of making sure your affiliate program is properly aligned with your brand. Many members of the affiliate industry have rightfully been focused on attribution – separating out incremental affiliate revenue from that cannibalized from other sources. Their goal is to cut out the commissions they are wasting on affiliates that steal existing customers out of the shopping cart. But there can be other hidden costs…

    My writing journal for Wednesday, October 22, 2014. You can find all the writing journal entries here. More meetings today; with luck, they’ll be the final ones for this week. Everyone’s just realized that the holiday sales season is upon us. No complaints… I love being busy, so this is an exciting time of the year for me, and for you too, I hope. Things won’t settle down on the marketing front until after Valentine’s Day. As usual, my writing day starts with work on the mystery novel. I didn’t get much written this morning; just 600 words. I was planning out several scenes.

Happy days; 2,300 words. Then nonfiction, working on the two business books: 1,800. Next, Honey’s breakfast. Over the past few days, the weather’s been cooler, so her arthritis is bothering her.

But are you using this weapon effectively? If your plan is not well executed, you’ll be giving something away with nothing to show for it.

    Onboarding customers into a new product is an important part of the customer acquisition process and extending lifetime value. There are always vital pieces of information that customers need to know to successfully use your product.

As valuable as onboarding is to revenue and growth, off-boarding is equally important to product iteration.

But for that Marketing strategy to be successful, it’s important that our message remains not only consistent throughout every single interaction that each customer has with our brand, but that is also that is highly personalized based on different aspects of data that we have collected for each customer.

We've come to think of homepage video as long, boring, and repetitive. When time is in short supply, we want to find the information we came for and move on. Product and educational videos are still powerful selling tools, but when it comes to your homepage, you would do better to invest in some creative parallax designs and animations.

    When it comes to choosing colors for your website, there's no one-size-fits-all formula for success. However, tossing up a site that matches your CEO's favorite colors is probably not the best option. A lot of time has gone in to studying color theory, and we've learned that numerous factors can dramatically impact the number of conversions you get (and conversions = cash). A good graphic designer, educated in color theory, knows how the use of color can attract - or deter - your audience. They know how certain colors make people feel, and more importantly, they know how to implement the…

    Jeff Brewer
    24 Oct 2014 | 7:00 am
    Software as a Service (SaaS) is a model for licensing and delivering software. The software is centrally (cloud) hosted and licensed on either on a monthly or annual subscription basis. Also known as “on-demand software,” SaaS is generally accessed through the user’s web browser. One of the biggest advantages of the SaaS model is reduced IT support costs, made possible by shifting responsibility for maintenance and support to the SaaS provider. Some of the most commonly used business applications for the SaaS platform include accounting, customer relationship management, office and…

The quicksilver nature of SEO is probably one of the biggest challenges you face in convincing your company’s senior management to invest in an organic SEO campaign; it’s hard for a casual observer to warm up to a concept that refuses to sit still long enough to be understood.

Panda was a change in Google’s search results algorithms that was rolled out in February, 2011, with follow-ups after that. The purpose was to reduce the rank of “spammy,” low quality websites so that people who searched for content would be more likely to get useful content. The results was that many article directories such as ezinearticles.com no longer appeared in searches. This is also my personal experience. Before Panda, when I did searches, I…

Most estimates say that the average web site visitor will give you only 10 seconds (or less) to make a great impression before they click away. If you don’t make a dramatic impression… *poof!* They’re gone forever. The painful truth is that if you can’t wow new visitors in the first few seconds, everything else means nothing.

    Social proof is the latest marketing tactic on the block that every business (big or small) should incorporate into their marketing strategy. If you’re looking for a way to improve the overall perception of your brand, building up social proof is the answer. Why is social proof so important?

Ever since Facebook began tweaking their video format and providing “YouTube-like features,” their video viewership increased significantly (even beating YouTube). Facebook revealed that users watch an average of more than 1 billion videos per day on Facebook. Why? Because users “like” and “share” these videos and they pop up in their friends’ news feeds.

In fact, it’s said that 95% of consumers use email, and 91% of users check their inbox at least once a day.

  • Forum Personality: Don’t be someone who you are not in real life!

    Shawn Gossman
    24 Oct 2014 | 10:02 am
    Forum personality is an important aspect in your forum career. It is important that you act on your forum the way you would act away from your forum. If you create a new character for yourself and use that character on your forum, then you are just being fake and that is dishonesty. Never be dishonest to your forum members because if you ever get caught, you will have that reputation of being a liar. Avoid all this by being yourself and keeping an honest forum personality.     An Honest Forum Personality As I said above, it is crucial for you to always be honest when running a…
  • Active Forum Owner: How to Make Your Forum Really Active!

    Shawn Gossman
    22 Oct 2014 | 9:49 am
    Being an active forum owner is very important for being a successful forum owner. If you fail to be an active forum owner, you will fail at having an active message forum. Active forums will have at least one active forum owner – that, I promise you. When it comes to running message forum, the forum owner cannot just sit back and watch the forum become active. You have to be an active forum owner and you have to make sure your forum gets active. There is no other way around this unless you want to hire someone to help you do this which is something many forum owners do at the beginning.

Your forum needs forum members in order for it to survive, right? So it just makes sense to meet the forum member demands and make you community happier each time you improve your message forum.

  • Forum Blog Promotion: Marketing Your Blog in 4 Unique Ways

    Shawn Gossman
    15 Oct 2014 | 10:02 am
    Forum blog promotion is where you have a blog and a message forum that share the same niche and you want to promote your blog on your message forum. Forum blog promotion is better when the content on your forum seamlessly integrate into your forum rather than just looking like an advertisement to your blog. If your members see an advertisement to your blog, they might click it and check it out but if you use great forum blog promotion skills and publish interesting content that links to your blog, they will probably click on those links quicker than clicking on a flat out advertisement link.

With any campaign, it is also important to measure your results to know how your efforts have fared. Was your campaign successful – did it achieve the…

    The big advantage that Twitter has to offer social media marketing companies is the ability to gain followers quickly.

Twitter creates brand ambassadors out of every follower of your updates. They in turn reach out to their audiences and extend your brand message. Besides the obvious merits of creating a strong social presence, there are some other ways to use this free service. If you’re a small to mid-sized…

It starts with an idea, from a founder or group of founders, and they set off to bring their vision to life. If their vision involves products, the mission might involve innovation or value. If they’re branding a service, their mission could involve user experience or dependability. Even if it takes time to put it into words, there is a natural attitude that forms around a business that goes into their mission and values and with a little focused effort you can start…

The noise lead to a false start, but more importantly, it lead to some intense shaming of the scoreboard operator: “I have no problem with our fans. Our fans are great.

    Social Media is reeling over the unexpected absence of Steve Nash for the 2014-2015 basketball season. On Thursday, it was announced that the Lakers player, who happens to also be Canadian, will be sidelined due to back and nerve problems.

    A recent study by Bain & Company revealed that 80% of companies say that they’re customer centric. The only problem with this statement is that only 8% of customers agree with this statement.   How can businesses be so off in their predictions when it comes to how their customers perceive them?  Reflecting on my own experience as a consumer, both in-store and online, I believe that it is due to the missed opportunities where they could have asked for customer feedback and didn’t.   eCommerce sites are the most common victims of this disparity.
