    5 Marketing Moves for Business Success - On a recent...


    (Page 10 of 11 )

    On a recent call to American Express, an executive was straightening out a billing problem. At the end of the call, the operator asked her, "Have I exceeded your expectations for this call?" and the exec flatly answered, "No." She had a billing problem, and the rep fixed it. That's the expectation.

    Now, if the rep had offered the executive a $50 American Express gift check to be used at any of American Express' online retail partners, THAT would have exceeded expectations, right? That story would be worth repeating to 10-20 people. Can you imagine the executive telling anyone, "Hey, I called AmEx to fix my billing error. Guess what? They did it!" That's not moving alone.

    Here's a good test to see if your marketing and sales strategies are in the category of "moving alone" - they are if you're doing something that:

    * is "simply not done" in your industry

    * customers will make a remark about (remarkable!)

    * goes against conventional wisdom (I call this "uncommon sense")

    * others (including your competition) think is "crazy"

    * others (including your competition) will actually be AFRAID to copy

    Get silly. Get crazy. Get an attitude. Get noticed.

    Author Seth Godin perhaps put this most succinctly when he said, "Safe is risky. And risky is safe."

    Let me conclude with a recap of the 5 Marketing Moves:

    1. Move Up = Get more valuable

    2. Move In = Get closer

    3. Move Ahead = Get smarter

    4. Move Aside = Get specialized

    5. Move Alone = Get noticed
