Hack The Network Effect: Customers to Contributors
Business is changing. Gone are the days of customers passively consuming your product, with little to no interaction beyond occasional support tickets.
Consumers want meaningful, connected relationships with the businesses and organizations they love. The future of business is enabling your customers to not just play an active role in their success, but that of their peers and your brand. Done well, this can builds remarkable brand loyalty, retention, and innovation and reduce costs. Salesforce, Star Citizen, Random House, HackerOne, Sephora, and others have done it. Now it is your turn.
Jono Bacon, author of 'People Powered' by HarperCollins Leadership, presents the combination of psychology, workflow, branding, and technology that delivers this, packed with pragmatic next steps.
