Publisher's summary

Popular speaker and consultant Joey Coleman talks to companies all over the country about how to turn a one-time purchase into a lifelong customer.

Coleman's theory of customer loyalty is that it's not about getting the sale: It's about the 100 days after the sale. During that brief window, as quickly as the customer experiences joy, euphoria, and excitement, buyer's remorse sets in. Twenty to 70 percent of newly acquired customers won't make another purchase because a company neglected them at the exact moment they needed affirmation.

Coleman offers a system designed to dramatically increase customer retention and as a result, the bottom line. He identifies eight distinct emotional needs customers undergo during the 100 days following a purchase, whether it's as small as a new drink at Starbucks or as big as a house. If you can understand and anticipate these phases, you can use a myriad of techniques - in-person, email, mail, and video - to cement a long and valuable partnership. For instance:

  • In the "Acclimate" stage, customers need language or totems that make them feel like part of a tribe. Take the software group that had to teach nontechnical users a fairly complex installation process. They turned the installation manual into beautiful puzzle that could be displayed when completed.
  • In the "Adopt" stage, customers should be welcomed to the highest tier of tribal membership with both public and private recognition. For instance, Sephora's VIB Rogue member welcome gift is a metallic card (private recognition) and a members-only shade of lipstick (for public display).
  • By the final stage, "Advocate", customers have embraced tribal membership and are primed to offer powerful referrals. That's why Dropbox waits until a free trial has expired before offering hefty bonuses for referrals.

Drawing on nearly two decades of consulting and keynoting, Coleman provides strategies to increase customer loyalty that listeners can customize based on industry and company size. His methodology has been incorporated by Hyatt Hotels, Zappos, and NASA to huge success. It requires minimal financial investment and will be fun for teams to implement. This audiobook is required listening for managers as well as for sales and marketing teams looking for nuts-and-bolts direction.

Message tainted by using shady biz as examples

I was happy enough to read this book until I got to the chapter highlighting Tony Robbins and his $15k photo ops. I was put off, as those self-styled business coaches (charlatans and con-artists) are a waste of money at best, and dangerous at worst for vulnerable individuals, especially those for whom a licensed therapist would be the more responsible (and affordable) option.

Then, I got to the chapter mentioning Tucker Max, a man once described by a U.S. District Judge as a "poster child for vulgarity." I don't care that his book, "Assholes Finish First" is a NY Times Best Seller. Tucker Max gleefully describes in his books and former blog the delight with which he filmed sexual encounters with women without their consent, among other disturbing behavior that would end the average person in jail. Were he a POC and not the son of a wealthy restauranteur, that would undoubtedly have been his outcome as well.

Then the chapter on doTERRA oils... There's not enough time to lay out all of the horrible issues with MLM business structures. They are manipulative and predatory, and their primary success is in separating vulnerable people with money they can't afford to lose.

I'm returning my book. Don't waste your money.

Needs to have a downloadable PDF for the exercises

Skip the audio book. The lack of a pdf to do the exercises means that you have to listen to the audio book in such a mannner that you have the sufficient time and location to do the exercises as you read the book. Just buy the book so you can do the exercises.

Packed with great tools.

Joey Coleman, not surprisingly, exceeds my expectations for a book on customer retention. From start to finish there is a wealth of information and tools provided. It’s the uncommon common sense and Joey distills it so clearly. I am excited to go through the book again, engage my team and use the tools that Joey has shared.

Only good for direct sales in a service business

Gave this two stars because he oversells what he is offering. Virtually 100% of his examples are direct sales, mostly in service business situations. I found little value for our business, which sells products through distribution. Sorry author, not all sales are the same.

Customer Experience Scales Startups

I bought the audio and 3 hardcover editions off Amazon to give to Startups I advise and invest in.

Finally, a definitive guide that s User-Centric, with no BS, and tons of wicked case studies and remarkable examples.

The author nailed it.

I could’ve listened for 5 more years!

Mr. Coleman’s book is my new favorite go-to (and recommendation) for customer interaction and service. Well done! Highly recommend.
