Pleasant Hill, CA (PRWEB) June 10, 2006
The Whetstone Edge, LLC, a customer-centric strategy consulting firm announces that on June 15, 2006, managing partner John I. Todor, Ph.D. will be presenting a teleseminar on “The Psychology of the Customer Experience.” The teleseminar is sponsored by the Association for the Advancement of Relationship Marketing as part of its Customer Equity Initiative.
AARM’s president, Robert T. Stacey says “This initiative is designed to help companies in any field, including B-to-C and B-to-B, learn how to optimize their business practices to deliver what today’s customers’ value and accrue customer equity.” This seminar focuses on many of the concepts presented in John I. Todor’s forthcoming book “Addicted Customers: How to Get Them Hooked on Your Company.”
According to John Todor, “Customers exhibit a split personality when making purchase decisions. When they purchase commodities they take an indifferent stance and focus on price and convenience. Indifferent customers are inherently not loyal. In contrast, when the customer experience enabled by an offering is emotionally and psychologically engaging, the experience has meaning to the customer. Engaged customers are highly loyal and value the relationship.”
