  16. 16. 1) Start with observing and listening.There are simple tools to observe what consumers are doing. Viasearch.twitter.com or more advanced tools. But what about customer emails?
  17. 17. 2) What do you want your consumers to tell about you?Is it about how cool your advertising was? Do you want them to talk aboutdeals? Or is it about something else?
  18. 18. 3) Helping people helps.Exceeding customer expectations builds loyalty (81% repeats, 63% recommends)and falling below customer expectations erodes loyalty (5%/71%).

  28. 28. 2) For a brand to engage in this conversation network, you have to act remarkable, create stuff worth sharing. Don’t plan only for life time money value, but for life time conversation value.
