presentations that exceed expectations

Under promise, over deliver. This is a common theme companies use to win the hearts and minds of their customer. The problem is it doesn’t work.

We know from studies of human behaviour that if you give more than is expected, then more becomes expected. For business, this leads to a cycle of increased transaction costs and eventually customer disappointment. And disappointed customers don’t stick around.

The solution? Understand what your customers truly want, then give it to them, delivered with ease and convenience. That creates happy customers who come back again and again.

If this sounds easy, you’re right. Yet few organizations are doing it, which presents you with an exceptional opportunity.

be a branding champion how to use marketing to build interest, influence experiences and create loyalty

We are influenced by brands. From the phones we use to where we buy our coffee, brands subconsciously influence our buying decisions. More than just corporate icons, we see brands as reflections of who we are. We are loyal to the brands we have the greatest emotional connection with.

While companies use marketing to influence our opinions of brands, we use brands to influence other people’s opinions of us. We envelope ourselves in brand specific clothes, electronics, and cars in order to sway how others perceive and value us. Our choice of brands is influenced by our emotional needs.
