Customer reference programs have been a topic of great interest during CMO CLUB dinners and discussions with CMOs. I’m pleased to provide this podcast series offering ‘CMO worthy’ best practices.
Denver, CO (PRWEB) June 02, 2011
Point of Reference®, the industry thought leader in customer reference management solutions, today announced a podcast series in partnership with The CMO CLUB offering insight into success factors for establishing and maintaining customer reference programs.
The podcast series features interviews with chief marketing officers (CMOs) in The CMO CLUB, from a range of successful business-to-business companies, each offering perspective on the following topics:
- What do executives need (financial return, strategic objective support, operational efficiency, etc.) in order to prioritize the establishment of a customer reference program?
- Once a program has been launched, what is needed (performance metrics, communication, leadership, etc.) to ensure ongoing investment and support?
A CMO interview will be published each week on the Point of Reference blog, Customer Reference Insights, as well as on The CMO CLUB site for members of the club.
“Customer reference programs are a necessity for any sales-driven, B2B organization,” said David Sroka, CEO at Point of Reference. “The podcast series will have broad appeal; CMOs will benefit from peer-to-peer knowledge sharing, while program champions within marketing will gain valuable perspective to help them align with CMO objectives. This podcast series is designed to offer insight that will simplify both the early developmental stages of a customer reference program, as well as the long-term health of a program.”
“Customer reference programs have been a topic of great interest during CMO CLUB dinners and discussions with CMOs,” said Pete Krainik, founder of The CMO CLUB. “I’m pleased to provide this podcast series offering ‘CMO worthy’ best practices for the benefit of the chief marketers who comprise our membership.”
