Guru Session: ...Turning Audiences into Brand Ambassadors

Join us for "Spreading the Word: Leveraging Word of Mouth to Drive Sales and Turn Audiences into Brand Ambassadors" at The Life Stage Marketing Summit 2010, this May 10-12 in Chicago.

Join Kathie Thomas and Jeff Davis of Fleishman-Hillard as they discuss how word of mouth is considered the most valuable and persuasive form of marketing these days. In fact, surveys show that nine of out every 10 consumers seek advice before making a purchase, and eight in 10 prefer advice from a peer rather than a so-called expert. These peer recommendations can increase the likelihood of purchase by 60 percent. Every company or organization has fans who would recommend their products to their peers. How can you transform them into and organized and mobilized team of brand ambassadors who authentically communicate the benefits of your brand in everyday conversations? Drawing upon the firm's 10 years of Word of Mouth experience, Fleishman-Hillard Senior Partner Jeff Davis and Director of Innovation Kathie Thomas will discuss the power of various World of Mouth channels, from Facebook and blogs to cell phones and chats across the backyard fence -- and how the Word of Mouth mix varies by age group.

Customer Service Woes for US Big Banks

Daily Finance reports that the American Customer Satisfaction Index survey was released today at the two biggest banks in the United States, Bank of America and JPMorgan Chase have "consumers giving both institutions the thumbs down."

Dan Burrows says, "The reasons for the drops in satisfaction are pretty obvious, according to ACSI. Bank of America customers are suffering from the cost-cutting undertaken to offset higher-than-expected debt resulting from the Merrill Lynch acquisition. Meanwhile, JPMorgan Chase is having difficulties swallowing Washington Mutual -- and it's the customers who are getting indigestion."
