AICEX: In poche righe un concentrato di CX e Marketing incredibile. Il potere del passaparola, la personalizzazione, la caratterizzazione difficile da copiare. E il bello è che gran parte delle cose le hanno imparate da noi Italiani, che se andiamo in 5 al bar probabilmente ordiniamo 5 caffè fatti in modo diverso (vetro, macchiato, schiumato, caldo, freddo , etc etc … )

Why did Starbucks choose to forego traditional advertisement for so long? originally appeared on Quora: The best answer to any question.

Answer by Paul Williams, former branding and marketing manager at Starbucks, on Quora:

In today’s business environment, we all know customer experience is important, and we’ve all heard about social media’s impact as the new “word of mouth”. Stats often point to each person telling at least 7 (sometimes as high as 20) other people about their experience with a brand.

And if we have a bad experience, we want to tell EVERYONE. Your business customers will talk about their experiences in the break room, around the water cooler, even in company meetings.
