Bloody Hell! And Other Marketing Truths My British Mum Taught Me

Look at all the research you’re encountering around you. Whether it’s coming from your own sources of customer feedback or third-party research firms, there is one thing that customers care about and that is their experience. And too often than not, we are failing to meet our customers’ basic expectations. Perhaps even worse, we continue to look at new channels or platforms as bright shiny objects that we layer onto already terrible experiences. We often also forget that every time an organization delivers a superior experience, customers expect that experience or better.

Enter Georgina Jane Barber, aka my Mum.

There are three things you should know about my Mum: 1) She is a brash British woman, 2) she believes she is always right, and 3) if she isn’t happy about something, then the world knows about it. It’s for all of these reasons that over the last 35 years she has provided many of the greatest lessons us marketers, designers, and strategists can use each and every day within our organizations.
