Is it possible to love a company MORE than your dog?

What's it take to get your customers to fall in love with you?  You've got to join me with +Jeanne Bliss today where she will share how BELOVED companies got folks to love them MORE than their dog -- 

HUH?  You'll have to tune in to see this.

This book is an oldie but goodie, Jeanne goes over 5 simple decisions that companies make that endears them to their customers.  Some of these may appear to be risky -- but she'll show you how it works.

We start at 2pm Eastern -- so BE THER?
 
Sometimes I wonder if every business owner’s wish is to have a long line of happy customers outside their door, checks in the mail every day, happy, inspired and loyal employees – sounds like an absolute dream.  After this description, I can’t kick the visual of an absolute Nirvana at work – nothing but fun and good stress as we strive to please customers we love that love us back.
Today’s author seems to have uncovered not just one – but dozens of companies who appear to be living this Nirvana of customers, fun and profits.  Jeanne Bliss is the author of “I Love You More Than My Dog” and she’s here to help us get closer to becoming beloved by our customers and employees.  I can’t wait!

Get some great Marketing Tips on a Friday with Marketing Guru - +David Bryant Mitchell 
 
For years, David Mitchell has been coaching businesses and business leaders to success by helping them build the tools and processes they need to make a business successful.

He knows the secrets for why businesses succeed, why customers stay loyal or leave, and how to be an effective business leader.

Unfortunately, it would be impossible for him to coach every business, so now he has written Building Your Booming Business to share the main strategies businesses need if they want to get ahead and stay there in a competitive marketplace. And surprisingly, it’s not all about profit or even having a better product.

I had heard from a friend that these guys not only had SNOW tires, but would store your all season tires (or snow tires) when not in use!!! I'm not sure that it gets any better than that. I called ahead because I wasn't sure if they would be able to take me today -- and Pat told me to come right over. When I got there, the place seemed packed to me -- but I was told that it was actually pretty slow and they would get right to me. And get this -- waiting was no problem because they had FREE WIFI and an office space where you could plug your computer in and get some work done. That was amazing! With it being "Small Business Shopping Week" -- this is the place to go to get your tires (and probably other car care) taken care of. Come on over - you won't regret it.

I never thought I'd look forward to going to the dentist.... I hate going to the dentist and will avoid it at all costs. But it had to be done. People thought I was nuts when I schedule the entire month of May for extensive dental work. But it was about as pleasant an experience as anyone could hope for. The first thing you'll notice is how bright and clean the place is. Really nice. The front desk staff not only has a smile on their face, but a sense of humor as well. And that certainly made me feel more at ease. Then -- the technology will blow your mind. Aspen has state of the art X-ray machines and stuff I've never seen anywhere else. Not only that, but they actually use these digital x-rays while they are working on your mouth. They even give you a tour of your mouth via the x-ray. Dr. Lloyd is really great. He has a soft and pleasant demeanor that will make you feel comfortable and at ease. I also can't say enough about the staff - Kayla, Jasmine and so many others who worked with me over the course of cleanings, fillings, crowns and wisdom teeth extractions (I know - what was I thinking?!) Another thing I LOVE about this place is that they hate pain as much as I do. There's even this gel that they put on your gums as they clean your teeth -- that totally rocks! Kayla is a little OCD about getting every little bit of plaque off your teeth and out of your gums - I don't think I've ever met a hygienist quite so committed to freeing the world of gum disease - but there she is. Scheduling is easy, payments are even easier (they take just about every insurance!) and you can't beat the location! I'm really happy that I found this place.

I first heard about Medina Muffler from a neighbor when I first moved to Medina and needed a car mechanic. Medina Muffler has never- ever let me down. When I've had an emergency and needed a leaky gas tank replaced so that I can go on a long trip the next day -- they made it happen. The staff at Medina Muffer is excellent. You never have to worry that someone who is clueless is working on your car. They have master mechanics and specialists for just about anything that your vehicle can dish out. Thanks to Medina Muffer, I've been able to drive all my cars for well over 100,000 miles a piece.
