Corporate Ambassadors – Redefining the Way we Engage Customers
30 November, 2011 | (01 hr)
For the past decade, marketers have been adjusting to a new era of deep customer engagement. To engage customers whenever and wherever they interact with an organization – in store, on the phone, by e-mail, blogs, Twitter and other social media –must be the task of the entire enterprise, not just the Marketing department. Companies including Starbucks and Zappos, for which superior engagement has been a critical source of their competitive advantage from the start, have integrated this with a measurable bottom-line impact. Designing great customer experiences depends on understanding how publics interact with the organization throughout their decision journey. That interaction could be with the product itself, the supporting services, key internal departments – Marketing, Sales, Public Relations -- or other parts of the business and its employees. How and why do employees act as Corporate Ambassadors? What does the organization as a whole need to do to ensure consistency of message in ways that are culturally relevant? What are realistic expectations for the role of specific functions and individuals? These and other questions will be examined during this webcast. Please join us.
