Welcome to the Monthly Mash, a mashup of tools, tales and tips on customer service and the customer experience from around the blogosphere.

Customer Experience Resource: The Customer Conversation

This month’s customer experience resource comes from none other than — well, us. The Customer Conversation is our newly-branded and formatted eNewsletter.

Our traffic here at Customers That Stick has shot up to new levels in the past few months — August traffic being almost triple that of June. And as the traffic has grown, so have the subscribers to our mailing list.

So, we have begun focusing more time and energy on creating quality content for our eNewsletter, and The Customer Conversation has been the outgrowth of that focus.

In addition to our new Monday Motivation series, we are also launching our full new eBook on September 24 entitled 7 Secret Customer Service Techniques Every Expert Knows! If you want a preview of the content, check out this post about secret customer service technique #6.

    Woo? Are you wooing me?

    See, if you would have charged a dollar a subscription you would be big time right now. That’s great this is gaining momentum, you are doing a great job with it. I tried to subscribe but it said I already had; who knows where I’m signed up, huh?

    Personalized recommendations are killer; the best you can have. Especially in my industry and they carry a lot of weight.

    Good material here my friend; I will definitely dig a little deeper when I get home tonight.

      I was thinking of charging 99 cents — I think that would shoot sales to a whole new level!

      Glad to see you were already on the list. My emails must be going in your spam box… 🙂 And, I’m with you — it’s hard to keep track of all the lists. Hopefully, Orange Man stands out!

      Thanks for the kind words. It’s been pretty cool the last few months.
