Ever wonder how to reverse engineer the customer acquisition process to drive real value? After meeting Ben Roberts at Engage Prague, we connected immediately. Ben is just on a social media roll and I'm honored to be part of his growth trajectory. It's clear that today, there's a strong call for transparency and reinventing the process of bringing new business. People have been buying from people for years. Today's audiences expect more from a brand, from a service provider, from a company. Ben is fortunate to lead marketing for a company that 'gets it.' They've reverse engineered the entire process of consumer acquisition and it's inspiring. What's it like to work with a business that has lost only one customer in 2.5 years? After hearing from Lucy live from WebSummit about the transformation of tech leaders in their approach to brand transparency, this podcast with Ben Roberts couldn't be more logical.
