    Wendy Lea and Brian SOlis love customer relationships

    Wendy and Brian dive deep on building trust-based customer relationships.

    Brian Solis’s Revolution provides viewers with access to the people, trends, and ideas that are defining the future of business, marketing, and media. He sat down with our CEO, Wendy Lea, to discuss the way social technologies are transforming the way companies build relationships with their customers, and the conversation was predictably informative and inspiring.


    Some highlights from the interview:

    • Conversations are the building blocks of relationships
    • Truth and trust are critical for meaningful conversations
    • Customer relationships are dynamic and on-going. It’s a mistake to only focus on pre and post purchase interactions
    • Map conversations to their stage in the customer journey for truly actionable insight
    • Insight should not be siloed in one department, but shared throughout the company

    1. Fantastic discussions. I agree that customer service is the new marketing, we are definitely in the age of the customer, where being genuine and building trust is essential. Great customer relations, good reputation and excellent service standards are the main key for a sustainable business. Making a customer relationship central to your company is a hard work, you have to listen and involve customers to your work, ignoring customers is the peril of your business.

        Hi Rebecca,

        You’re so right! Customers have more options than ever before. Companies need to earn and keep their trust by engaging them in conversations, listening to what they have to say, acting on it (when appropriate), and *always* closing the loop. Thanks for your comment! It’s great to hear from someone who gets it :).
