Customer Service Is More Than Having Bodies In Seats

My Dearest Chobani: We have a problem.

My Dearest @Chobani:

In that I ate ~365 containers of #Chobani during 2017, I can't imagine many #ChobaniLovers loving Chobani more than I do.

Creating A Multi-Channel Marketing Attack

In a time where content and information is expected to be available 24/7, prospects and customers want to interact with businesses in ways that works for them and their lifestyle, not yours. The fact is: using one, single channel is not enough.

The difference between the two views creates what we call a gap analysis.…
