Synergized Quote of the Week
"The key is not to prioritize around your schedule, but schedule around your priorities." - Stephen R. Covey
Savvy Secret Tip of the Week
How are you helping customers become more engaged by feeling not only connected with your business, but with one another as well? How are you relating to them in a way that reinforces there are others like them seeking the same solutions and resources? How are you introducing them to one another in a way where they can be a resource to one another? How are you celebrating with them by bringing them together to know one another and potentially expand their network as a result? Four out of five growth companies in our CRISP Study research made connecting customers with resources or each other a regular practice within their businesses. To learn more about the power of "Connecting Customers," read Secret #15 in in my book, 50 Marketing Secrets. To order the book, CLICK HERE!
