Oil Patch CRM


A recent story chilled me to the bone. The headline supplies all the reasons: “Saudi Arabia’s Grand Plan to Move Beyond Oil: Big Goals, Bigger Hurdles.” At first glance, this doesn’t ring any CRM bells, but maybe it should. Why would any business or business-state contemplate moving out of its sweet spot if it weren’t required to? What happens to the customers that have become dependent? That’s the point. Beyond oil means running out — as in we won’t be in that business in so many years because there will be nothing left to pump.

Harlequin Romances Customers


I recently read a user story about how Harlequin — a publisher of romance novels — keeps its customers loyal. It has embraced several ideas that work really well, including emphasizing a consciousness of customer loyalty, keeping things simple, and focusing on personalizing relationships and engagement. Consciousness is relatively easy, but someone high on the org chart has to be willing to say, “This is important.” In the customer realm, being conscious of working to maintain relationships is about as important as it gets.
