    What You Need to Know About Customer Experience

    What You Need to Know About Customer Experience

    How much time do you spend thinking about or working on your customer’s experience? The guest on this episode of Digging Deeper would probably argue that if you’re not spending a good portion of your time there, you need to. Brad Cleveland is an expert on customer experience and the founding partner and former CEO of the International Customer Management Institute. He’s the author of the new book Leading the Customer Experience: How to Chart a Course and Deliver Outstanding Results.
    He and host Jason Falls talk about the state of customer experience in a world that seems to be overrun with volatile customers and bad experiences. What does your brand need to know and do to address customer experience today? Give the episode a watch or listen and find out.
    This episode of Digging Deeper is less sponsored by someone and more just presented by a new project Jason Falls has built he wants you to know about. Our friends at Get.Online, the domain name provider, along with Ryan Foland and Kim Garst have produced three online courses that combined, form the .Online Business Academy.
    It’s a series of easy to follow online courses built to help you start your own business, make a business plan, build a website for your business and start driving revenue for that thing you’ve always wanted to launch. Ryan starts off the academy’s curriculum with a course on how to come up with a business idea that doesn’t suck. The course from Kim is how to write an online business plan you will actually use. And then Jason's course is how to set up and launch your business website to attract customers.
    The .Online Business Academy is FREE! The lessons are broken up into short videos and activities, so you can do a little at a time. Or, of course you can dive in and complete the entire academy lessons all in one day.
    So if you’ve been thinking about starting your own business or you or someone you know needs help to take that idea to the next level, The dot-Online Business Academy is live and waiting for you. Visit jason.online/academy right now.

    Is Your Business Ready for the Digital Pivot?

    Shockingly, a good portion of both marketers and businesses are not hip to the digital world. These laggards are in danger of falling behind, then falling off the ability to succeed in today's marketplace.

His new book The Digital Pivot is a blueprint for any business, owner, marketer or entrepreneur to not just understand all the facets of digital marketing, but excel in implementing them.

    Find Your Red Thread

    Find Your Red Thread

    There's a huge difference in a brand strategy and a content strategy. There's also a huge difference in brand messaging and the everyday, tactical social content that delivers it.

    Tamsen Webster has studied this problem and has a solution in her new book Find Your Red Thread. She joined Jason Falls on Digging Deeper this week to explore how to execute on a messaging strategy in day-to-day social posts, how to connect your brand's voice and promise through the creative and strategic process to execute well and beyond.

    How Can Your Brand Bridge The Trust Gap?

    How Can Your Brand Bridge The Trust Gap?

    There's a trust gap between consumers and brands that has been growing for decades. For some, social media has helped close the gap, but only for those who truly understand the dynamics of social media. For others, the spray-and-pray, blast messages just push consumers farther away.
    Margot Bloomstein is a well-known content marketing strategist who has written a new book about closing that gap. It's called Trustworthy. She joined us on Digging Deeper to help brands understand the gap, how to close it and how to ultimately earn trust from your audiences.

    What happens when a Creative Director leads with social and digital?

    What happens when a Creative Director leads with social and digital?

    The typical advertising agency creative director is someone steeped in television, print, radio, outdoor and the like. They probably went to art school and have spent time building creative strategies. But the world of digital and social media has changed the requisite background for what we call creative directors today.
    Bridget Jewell is one of the fabulous creative directors at Periscope, an agency with offices around the world, but based in Minneapolis. She has developed award-winning social, PR and influencer programs for the likes of Hefty, Trolli and Black Forest candies, Great Clips, Target, the Minnesota Twins, Intuit and many more. She’s joined Digging Deeper to tell us about it and talk creativity with brands.
