My Mark: 10/10
Another great book. Full of useful examples, studies, and also fun to read!
Talk Triggers is the definitive, practical guide on how to use bold operational differentiators to create customer conversations, written by best-selling authors and marketing experts Jay Baer and Daniel Lemin.
Word of mouth is directly responsible for 19 percent of all purchases, and influences as much as 90 percent. Every human on Earth relies on word of mouth to make buying decisions. Yet even today, fewer than one percent of companies have an actual strategy for generating these crucial customer conversations. Talk Triggers provides that strategy in a compelling, relevant, timely audiobook that can be put into practice immediately, by any business.
The key to activating customer chatter is the realization that same is lame. Nobody says "Let me tell you about this perfectly adequate experience I had last night." The strategic, operational differentiator is what gives customers something to tell a story about. Companies (including the 30+ profiled in Talk Triggers) must dare to be different and exceed expectations in one or more palpable ways. That's when word of mouth becomes involuntary: The customers of these businesses simply must tell someone else.
Talk Triggers contains:
Consumers are wired to discuss what is different and ignore what is average. Talk Triggers not only dares the listener to differentiate, it includes the precise formula for doing it.
Combining compelling stories, inspirational examples, and practical how-to, Talk Triggers is the first indispensable work about word of mouth. It's an audiobook that will create a conversation about the power of conversation.
