Overview

Over the past decade, the concept, and effective execution, of off-line and online social (and business-related) informal peer-to-peer communication has become extremely important to marketers as, increasingly, business-to-consumer (B2C) and business-to-business (B2B) customers have shown distrust, disinterest, and disdain for most supplier messages conveyed through traditional media.

The Customer Advocate and the Customer Saboteur offers a comprehensive overview and sets of actionable insights into this new world of customer-led communication and behavioral influence:

- How we got here

- How contemporary and actionable measures can be applied to assess strategic and tactical customer experience and relationship effectiveness
- Why advocacy is the ultimate customer loyalty behavior goal
- How to identify drivers of, and minimize, customer sabotage
- How employee behavior links to customer advocacy behavior
- How social word-of-mouth is addressed differently around the world
- How the core concept of advocacy can be expected to morph going forward through more proactive marketing and leveraging of customer behavior
