Review

 "Refreshing and practical. Managing the Customer Experience shows companies how to build the power of their brand. Wheeler and Smith inspire your organization to deliver a different and more valuable offering to your targeted customers."

Bradley T. Gale, author of Managing Customer Value and President, Customer Value, Inc.

"Delivering customers a consistently superior set of benefits is probably the most important driver of value creation. This book provides a number of practical insights which will guide the reader on the difficult but fascinating path leading to great customer value delivery."

Jean-Claude Larréché, The Alfred H. Heineken Professor of Marketing, INSEAD

"A fascinating and insightful book which is equally relevant for the leaders of professional services firms looking to build ‘trusted advisor’ relationships with their key clients."

Michael Bray, Chief Executive, Clifford Chance

"Managing the Customer Experience is an incredibly practical guide for building customer loyalty in the new century."

Marshall Goldsmith - Founding Director of the Financial Times Knowledge Dialogue and the Alliance for Strategic Leadership.

"Smith and Wheeler show us what the 21st Century Company has to look like if it is to be successful. They show that great brands are not primarily built through advertising but by the experience and value they offer customers."

Professor Peter Doyle, Warwick Business School, University of Warwick

"This book shows how to unlock the full value potential of the customer experience, supported by a wealth of examples from world leaders such as Tesco and Harley-Davidson. The connection made between the Marketing, Human Resources and Customer Service functions is very powerful. This, combined with the emphasis on the role of leadership, makes Managing the Customer Experience required reading for CEO's, Marketing, Human Resource, and Operations Directors, and their teams."

William Gordon, Strategy Partner, Accenture and co-author of Brand Manners.

"In their book, Managing the Customer Experience, the authors bring forward the concept of loyalty and advocacy in customer experience in a very targeted way … unearthing one of the most essential branding rules, which is to make your preferred customers your best ambassadors."

Marc Gobé, President and Executive Creative Director, Desgrippes Gobé Group, author of Emotional Branding: the New Paradigm for Connecting Brands to People.

"If you are interested in increasing customer loyalty, Managing the Customer Experience is the book for you. Most books on the subject focus on your company's image and tell why it's important. This book makes the business case for branding but then shows you how to do it. Full of practical "how to" advice, illustrative anecdotes, and application exercises, it is not only a good read, but a significant investment in your future success."

Richard Whiteley, author of The Customer Driven Company

"Managing the Customer Experience provides a comprehensive blueprint for any organization that wants to deliver a customer experience that supports and builds its brand. Smith and Wheeler bring this intriguing concept to life through a well-researched variety of examples, insights, methods, and tools. Don’t just read this book ― use it!"

Scott Timmins, Vice President, College Marketing, Millea Hall, Babson College

 

Synopsis

How much more profit could you make if you had customers who couldn't imagine doing business with anyone but you? In your dreams! Tell that to Virgin Atlantic or Harley Davidson. How great would life be if 40% of your new business simply knocked on your door without you having spent a cent advertising for it? Impossible! Tell that to First Direct. The companies in this book have managed to turn customers into advocates. Advocates who constantly refer their friends and colleagues to those businesses. Why? Because those companies have created a Branded Customer Experience(R). They have managed the relationship to the point where customers can't imagine wanting to do business with anyone else. How can you gain this unbeatable competitive advantage? Managing the Customer Experience shows you how. It takes you through the step-by-step process of creating Loyalty by Design. It shows you how to re-think your business from the customer's point of view and then design and deliver a customer experience that drives loyalty and profitability.
