Show Notes

Is the customer always right?

It certainly is right that if you don’t have customers, you don’t have a business.

But maybe your customers are not the right customers for you.

Jill Raff grew up at a McDonalds.

Her grandparents opened McDonald’s location #150 in 1959, and Jill learned everything about business and customer experience growing up answering the phones, filling boxes of fries, doing inventory and traveling to conferences to hear McDonald’s founder Ray Kroc talk about his philosophy that the customer is “always right”.

Jill Raff is a customer experience strategist and author of Transforming Transactions Into Interactions™, and she shares her strategies for engaging your customers in a way that creates lifelong fans and referrals and why it is all about the “real-ationship”:

  • Why you must truly understand your customers and show them you care
  • How to turn your customers into your viral referral-based salesforce
  • How to avoid the worst customer service mistakes
  • Why its wrong to always make your customers wrong
  • Why Zappos was sold to Amazon for $1bn: It was about their customer-first culture
  • Greet your customers eye-to-eye or find a way to really show you understand them, their context, and needs. Make them feel special!
  • How to create a company culture that is customer-first
  • When you’re in alignment with your ‘soul’ purpose the money follows
  • How to value yourself so you deliver top value to your customers
  • How to price yourself in alignment with your true value and not over-deliver
  • Lessons from the best brands online and retail
  • Trust your intuition
