In the early nineties, B2C marketing was all about the big bang. You had a big ad campaign, a big billboard, a big TV spot, a big event. In the nineties, everybody was doing it and everybody was expecting it to work.
We have gotten into this whole B2B marketing thing and now everybody is doing this with this big bang. They are expecting it to work. And most of the time, it doesn’t.
Marketing is a lot more subtle now. It is not all about big bang marketing. It is about a lot of small little things that build and nurture relationships and brand awareness and trust.
I actually think it is one of the most underrated marketing channels.
It is just about building relationships. It is not about pushing something. It is about building relationships.
It is about building awareness and trust and familiarity. I think it has just really changed over the last 10 years in how marketers do their marketing.
What are some of the biggest mistakes that companies make when it comes to marketing?
Too much marketing.
Too much marketing is not the right answer.
A good marketing plan is not just about putting out a million advertising messages. It is about building relationships, building familiarity, building trust, building awareness. That is where the true value is.
I think it is really important to get that balance right. I think that you can have 100 pieces of marketing messages. But you have to make sure that they are all building toward the same thing.
I think that when a business makes a marketing decision, it is really about the customer and the relationship.
If you make a marketing decision based on the product, it is going to cause problems later.
When you make a marketing decision based on the product, it is going to cause problems later. It is not about the product. It is about the relationship.
What are some examples of things that companies can do to improve their marketing?
A lot of companies can improve their marketing by putting more focus on their customer.
I think that the customer is the most important part of it.
The customer is the most important part of it and you have to put a lot of time and effort into understanding who your customers are.
The first thing that you need to do is go back to the basics. Back to the core. You have to understand who your customers are and where they are coming from.
We are talking about making sure that you are really focusing on the customer first.
Then start to build a relationship with them.
The customer is like the product. The product is that thing. The customer is the product. When you are building a relationship with customers, you are building a relationship with the customer.
We are talking about building relationships with customers.
You need to really understand how they are using your product. You need to understand what they are using it for.
And you need to really understand their pain point.
Maybe you don’t know that. But you know the problems that they are having. You know what they want.
I think that is really important. You need to understand what they want. And you need to make sure that you are building a relationship with them.
The next part is really getting to know your customers. There is no one way that you should do this with your customers. It is a lot of different ways that you can get to know them.
And then understanding what their needs really are.
I think we are talking about a lot of different things. But I think it is really important to build a relationship with our customers and understand who they are.
What are some of the biggest mistakes that companies make when it comes to customer service?
Not having a good customer experience.
I think one of the biggest mistakes that companies make is not having a good customer experience.
I think it is one of the most overlooked things that they do.
We are talking about customer experience.
I think it is just about building that relationship. It is not a product.
It is a relationship.
It is not about the product. It is about the customer. I think it has a lot more to do with building that relationship.
If you do service, I think you probably have to build a relationship.
It is like the relationship between a doctor and patient.
It is not just a product. It is a relationship.
If you build a good brand, you are going to have a good customer experience.
But if you have good brand and you don’t have good customer experience, it is going to be a disaster.
I think you have to have both.
You have to have a good customer support experience. When you are dealing with customers, it is really important to understand what the customer is going through.
And then you have to make sure that you are providing support when they need it.
You can have a lot of different types of support. You can have customer service, you can have product support, you can have other different types.
I think when you are building a brand, you need to have all of those different types of support.
What is a good customer experience?
I think the best customer experience is when they are happy. You don’t need to have a lot of stuff.
But you need to make sure that your customer is happy and that they are going to come back to you and work with you again.
When I was at Intercom, we had a lot of success.
We started to build brand and we built a great brand. And we became very successful.
But we had a really bad experience with customers. We built a product that was really great. We had a great product.
It was a really great platform. And so you want to make sure that the customer is happy.
And you want to make sure that they are going to come back.
When you are a brand, you really just want to make sure that you have great customer experience.
If you do that, you are going to have a great brand.
What are some examples of things that companies can do to improve their customer experience?
A lot of companies can improve their customer experience by making sure that they have a good customer service model.
They are not just talking to a customer. They are talking to a customer service manager.
You have to understand the customer well enough to be able to provide the most customer experience.
The other thing is about the customer, you need to understand the customer.
You have to understand the customer. And you have to be able to provide that experience.
I think there is a lot of things that we can do.
I think there is a lot of different ways that you can build a brand. And that is really important.
If you build a brand, you have to build a brand. It is not about the product. It is about the customer. And it is about the relationship.
I think the most important thing is having a great customer experience.
And then understanding your customer. We can talk all about the different things that you can do.
But just building a brand is really important. You have to really understand the customer. You have to understand the problem.
You have to understand what the customer wants and needs.
