Consumers Don’t Want Products And Services, They Want Experiences

    Following my presentation at Adobe Summit, I sat down with CMO.com‘s Giselle Abramovich (also my dear friend) back stage to discuss the importance of experience design and the future of brand in a digital economy. I also got to share the inspiration behind, X: The Experience When Business Meets Design. In this in-depth interview, we also explored my research, work and ideas about how every company should re-imagine brand for an era of digital Darwinism. The questions and answers cover…

Customers Don’t Care About Employee Experience When It Comes to CX

Customers don’t care about the realities of our business, its limitations, risk averse culture, regulations, politics, etc. The customer’s experience must begin with the experience customer have and ultimately the experience they should have.

Innovation Starts When You Step Outside Your Comfort Zone

The Much Overdue Rise of Experience and Service Innovation

The Much Overdue Rise of Experience and Service Innovation

The number of fantastic experiences we have with businesses in moments of truth, usually in time of need and help, are so isolated, that we tend to remember and talk about them over and over again. Most of the time, when we need support, the cumulative experience is nothing short of abysmal. In most cases, we have to schedule time and work up the nerve to contact the companies we give money to just to gain some level of already expected…

As an Author on Innovation and Digital Darwinism, I Realized that I Needed to Upgrade My Work

As an Author on Innovation and Digital Darwinism, I Realized that I Needed to Upgrade My Work

As someone who studies the impact of innovative technologies on markets and societies, I found it ironic to write books on the subject that were strongly rooted in traditional channel formats. I struggled with the paradox of urging people to challenge conventions when I clearly couldn’t follow suit. So, going back to the my first solo book, ENGAGE!, in 2010, and with every book following, I borrowed from iconic Hollywood trailers to promote each title. But the books themselves, were still…

It’s Time to Upgrade the RFP for Mobile Only Customer Journeys and Experiences

It’s Time to Upgrade the RFP for Mobile Only Customer Journeys and Experiences

An unpublished research interview with Erica D’Aloia, Manager of Ecommerce Traffic for Godiva Chocolatier. The topic explored the idea of upgrading RFPs for CMOs to consider the mobile customer journey uniquely. Special thanks to Mike Grehan of Acronym. How are micro-moments and shift in mobile behavior shaping the RFP process (or not)? How are micro-moments changing marketing strategies?  The word ‘Mobile Behavior’ initially threw me off – where I think of this more as use and importance of a device. I…
