Brandtender Marketing by Dan Day
The Book That Turns Marketing Inside-Out

“This concept validates my belief that front-line employees are the most important people we have to build relationships that help customers enjoy their experience. The book outlines employee-customer encounters that go from great (‘Unforgettable’) to disastrous (‘Unforgivable’), a powerful reminder to me how day in and day out, employees are important to the success of any business. We have an employee recognition program tied into the customer experience, and we’re using what we learned from the book to take that initiative a step further. Day explains that no two companies have the same employee dynamic, which provides an ‘unduplicatable differentiation’ from anyone we compete against—if we learn how to leverage it.

“I recommend this book to anyone looking for new ways to grow and retain customers, particularly in this economy, because it helps us maximize the existing investment in employees, who can cost-effectively become our ‘marketing army.’

- Randy Sampson, President and CEO, CanterburyPark
