Format: Hardcover
If like me you have built a business from scratch and if like me you are not good at seeking out other peoples advice or opinions then this book may be for you. I wanted to know if my ideas for expanding my already multi million pound business were on the right lines or not. Now, I am not good at joining business clubs, going along to local enterprise initiatives or any of that stuff which is all very well but sometimes it leaves you in a lonely position when it comes to checking out your ideas.

This book is clever, it doesn't "teach" you, it doesn't speak at you, what it does is to explain how to get more out of your customers and sustain it. By involving you in the method it ensures that you will finish it, albeit at times that I found it a little repetitive but if you are looking for a fresh idea and the way to implement it or if you want verification of your own thoughts I thoroughly recommend it. BTW if you really are going to read it on holiday as I did, then I suggest a book cover from a novel may be a good alternative to divorce!

HASH(0x8b405ec4) out of 5 stars Practical and proven ways for winning with customers 14 May 2011
By Lisa S. Thompson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
As an expert in commercial strategy, I have been helping clients with similar issues for 16 years. Keith and Jerry have managed to boil down into one book, the pure essence of what it takes to win. Many of these concepts have been in the marketplace for years. So now, with this insightful and practical how-to book, managers have no excuse for not doing what we know to be essential for winning. Bravo to Jerry and Keith.

HASH(0x8bd29318) out of 5 stars New Thinking on Creating Customer Value 5 Mar. 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As a pricing consultant I was intrigued with the crisp and relevant answers to the question on how your products create more value for your customers vs. your competitors. The book provides a systematic process in determining the value, monetizing it and a complete program for profitably growing your business. It is the most focused business book that I have read to date.

HASH(0x8bd29300) out of 5 stars Want to grow revenue and profit? Read this book first. 16 Aug. 2010
By Hanno Lorenzl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
With this book (and the companion website & software solution) Keith and Jerry have achieved quite a feat: They link a quantitative, logical and rigorous methodology with a simple and effective way to execute. "Winning with Customers" provides step-by-step instructions to answer the two key question to commercial success:
-Why do my customers buy from me?
-How do I get them to spend more with me?
If you want to finally go beyond the stock answers ("We have the best products"; "We have the lowest prices"; "We have the highest customer satisfaction")to understand customer value and put it to everyday use, then this book needs to be on your reading list.

HASH(0x8bd297c8) out of 5 stars This book will change the playing field creating new winners! 13 Aug. 2010
By Alan B Hart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
As a strategy consultant to large and small companies, I have seen first hand the need for new thinking on how to quantify the value proposition. Keith and Jerry in this book give us the argument and the tools to bring the idea to life. They teach us to win!

This book is likely to change the playing field for B2B companies for years to come -- you do not want to be a follower (loser).
