  5. 5. mo’ problem statements • slave to email, reactive vs. proactive – google hangouts, chat, groupme, yammer, kill recurring company emails, quality > quantity • slave to process, creativity suffers – be agile, bust down the door • teams too segmented, challenges in execution – smaller teams, better chemistry

  11. 11. keep them happy (coming back) • keeping customers (or team members) is less expensive than getting new ones • not good, great customer service • email cycles (+3 +7 +30 days) • genuine human storytelling (blogs) • zappos them • spend money on customers > marketing
  12. 12. happy customers = evangelists • if the product/experience rocks • (and) if the customer service rocks • (and) you stay competitive (pricing) • (then) your happy customers should use the interwebs to get new customers for you • (and) that rocks
  13. 13. revenue • what products make the most? • what products are in the long tail? • how are the approaches different? • which is the current focus? • (because) the targets are different
  14. 14. a few more tips • 80/20 rule • less is more – minimalism • too many chefs, assign decision makers • don’t use, “because instagram” • putting out fires sucks, be proactive • ideas can come from anyone • don’t deliver static products • complacency sucks • we’re not curing cancer, have fun
