Why customer retention is the new acquisitionIf there's anything the recession of 2009 taught us, it was the importance of investing in our customers, but when was this any different? So says Joseph Jaffe, bestselling author of "Life After the 30-Second Spot" and "Join the Conversation, " and a leading expert and thought leader on new media and social media. In most busine...more

Есть такая классическая формула маркетинга, называемая воронкой продаж: “внимание, интерес, желание, действие”. В этой классике, заезженной и преподаваемой во всех вузах, автор книги нашел простой "чит" - он попросту перевернул ворокну, предлагая сместить акценты маркетинга с привлечения новых клиентов на удержание уже имеющихся. Разворачивая историю в другую сторону, получаем: признательность, диалог, поощрение, объединение. Базируется же все на трех китах: контент, общение и получение рекоменд...more
Clever guide to retaining customers

Companies traditionally use the mass media to market their products and services, spending much of their budgets on hit-or-miss communications. They hope their messages will somehow penetrate the media din and reach a sufficient number of receptive prospects who will go out and buy their goods.

In "Flip the Funnel", marketing expert Joseph Jaffe insists that companies should make customer retention a primary focus by offering the highest quality customer experience, which essentially turns delighted customers into brand evangelists.

His message is one that every business needs to hear and recognize: It...more
Probably no one model for marketing, 4 Ps or otherwise, tells the whole story. This book offers several unique models for the engagement era which are surely very useful (and not just the usual old stuff, there was some unique information in the book), but not as revolutionary as sold- you still need the 4 Ps and a lot of old school stuff.

REVOLUTIONARY! This is a fresh perspective that turns marketing into a whole new adventure. It has become my new Marketer's bible.
Mark Polino
Better than many. Some of the lists in the middle were useful but I'm not sure it delivered the "How" as clearly as it could.
I think they stole my idea.
