Winning customers’ hearts with value-unique experiences

We all want customers talking about their experience with our brand, but providing great service isn’t enough. And though we hear a lot about the power of adding value, it’s easy to weigh the experience down or simply waste money on freebies.

To stand out, you need to add emotional value through unique experiences.

So what can you do? Fortunately, we had the privilege of interviewing one of the most prolific customer-focused authors to date! And he’s here to explain how your brand can be the next one people are talking about.

Chip Bell coined the term “value-unique,” which describes service experiences that provide more emotional value. Through amazing examples and heart-warming stories, he explains how the best companies create experiences that leave lasting impressions customers want to talk about.

And it all comes back to culture! It takes a creative culture to deliver value-unique experiences. Moreover, delivering value-unique experiences also creates a more valuable connection among employees.

So how can you create a culture around adding emotional value to the service experience? And how can you begin innovating your service to create these value-unique experiences? Chip has some great tips and examples we can all relate to and learn from.

It was a great pleasure and privilege having Chip on the show, so listen in!
