I had the pleasure of presenting at Chris Brogan and Justin Levy's Inbound Marketing Summit San Francisco and Dallas. The focus of the presentation is on how marketing got broken, how marketers can fix marketing and a few key results from some of our clients like Sony and Atkins.

  8. 8. Five Ways to Talk “With” Your Customers 1. Listen – what are your customers saying? Where are they saying it (think: Google Alerts, Radian6, Techrigy, BuzzGain) 2. Join – are your customers on Facebook? Twitter? Get Satisfaction? Sign up (but learn the etiquette first). 3. Ask – are your customers unhappy with you? Find out why? Ask what you could be doing better. 4. Engage – Thank your customers for taking the time to tell you what’s on their mind. Tell them what you’re thinking (in ENGLISH please). Ask more questions. 5. Build – If you’ve gotten good at numbers 1-4, consider creating your own community to augment the conversations. REPEAT 8 © 2008 Powered, Inc.
