This amazing book didn’t so much open my eyes to a fancy new marketing strategy, but rather seemed to describe what we already believed.
Essentially, the philosophy of the book is all about listening to your customers, being obsessed with what they say and think and answering those questions really well for the benefit of those customers as well as future prospects.
It means educating and teaching, resulting in trust in the business as an authority of the subject.
It makes complete sense – as consumers we expect answers. When we don’t get them, we become upset and leave. Our loyalty is to the honest and open teacher focused on our problems.
