Mining the Customer Base

One of the biases inherent in CRM is its orientation toward new business. This might sound strange to most people, but really, I think of it as the startup echo chamber. It’s a bias in part because CRM was invented by new companies for new companies. However, the “C” part, customer, involves more than simply acquiring new ones, especially for established companies.

I Can't Hear You, the Washing Machine Is Too Loud

Why do my GE washer and dryer sound as loud as a hurricane? As I sit here at the beach, on the balcony, on a beautiful, sunny, warm and peaceful morning watching the sun rise over the sparkling Atlantic Ocean, something is terribly wrong. What? I can’t hear you. Could you speak louder? Sorry, the new washer and dryer we recently bought are roaring so loud I can’t hear myself think. We’ve had this place at the beach for a while, and it is a perfect place to unwind — that is, unless we have some laundry to do.

Ever built a house of cards? It’s critical to start with a sound foundation to support your later efforts. No matter how sturdy your start is, however, a wrong move anywhere along the way can bring down the house and cause all your work to be for naught.
