Creating Customer Evangelists

It’s the holy grail of marketing: customers who evangelise your product or brand to friends, colleagues and family with authentic emotion and conviction. They are customers who put their own reputations on the line and have nothing to gain except, perhaps, happiness from helping someone discover the joy of your brand. Recognising and finding these elite customers who power your sales is a challenge for almost any organisation. The cultural meme of “customer evangelism” that authors Jackie Huba and Ben McConnell conceptualised in their book best-selling book Creating Customer Evangelists has spread to hundreds of organisations around the world that use it as a barometer of their marketing efforts. This entertaining and provocative presentation shares convincing evidence of why customer evangelists matter and how organisations can attract more of them using the right strategies and tactics.

Loyalty Lessons from Lady Gaga

It’s not just crazy outfits, over-the-top performances, and catchy tunes that have made Lady Gaga one of the most successful pop stars of all time. Marketers have also been awed by her unconventional customer loyalty strategy. With 41 million Twitter followers and 63 million Facebook fans, she blows away her peers on social media. She has methodically built a grassroots base of what she calls her “Little Monsters”—passionate fans who look to her not just for music but also for joy and inspiration.
Marketing expert Jackie Huba unpacks the method behind Lady Gaga’s success and isolates the strategies businesses can apply in an engaging and interactive presentation based on the research from her new book, Monster Loyalty: How Lady Gaga Turns Followers into Fanatics.

Word of Mouth: The Most Effective Marketing in an Advertising-Drenched World

How do companies compete in a marketplace where the typical American is exposed to 5,000 advertising messages per day? Jackie Huba presents a framework for building a brand or company that’s worth talking about, from having the right purpose and values to developing the kind of story that people will easily understand and spread. Word of mouth that builds brands isn’t based on stunts and gimmicks; it’s based on a company demonstrating its buzzworthy values through the product/service experience. With inspiring and relevant examples, this presentation is the motivation for companies to start doing more of the right things that get customers talking.

The One Percenters

Who are the One Percenters? They are a business’ most loyal, most engaged customers. This core group of customers, in general, makes up about one percent of a customer base. These are the fanatical customers who spread the word about your product, create online content and fan art, and organise other customers to collaborate online. Customer loyalty expert Jackie Huba will explain how this 1% is may be very small part of the customer base, yet they have enormous influence in helping the business grow and recruiting new customers, online and offline.
