H2H = facets of why & how communication today needs to be adjusted in order to keep up with our ever-evolving social and digital world. To your point, there is a lot of people putting out the wrong message, or the right message delivered in a way that is not clear and concise. I have to think that this message is resonating if it's going to drive the H2H book into the third consecutive week of being in the top 1% of sales on Amazon. I mean, I'm good, but not that good.
I think in both instances, it's a connection the customer has with a person or brand that leads them to purchasing a product. Sure, I love chocolate too, but I'll go for a snickers bar because "it satisifies me" before I purchase a Kit Kat. With the advent of Social Business, the relationship a customer feels when they have an extroidanary experience with any brand brings them that much closer to a brand the next time they have an "impulse buy." No matter what we sell, B2B or B2C, businesses do not have emotion. People do.
Absolutely! We need to relate to the customer which we've had to do for years. Now with Social Business, it's forcing us to simplify our message (become more clear) and build relationships.
Thank you Larry!
YES! "It's not really how, but what." I couldn't agree more.
I agree, but with the advent of Social Business, it's made it harder to discern the difference between B2B and B2C.
