Buyers no longer care who they buy from. And customer loyalty is dead. So true. So confronting!

In this book, Bob Bloom reminds us that marketing has changed forever and takes us on the journey of understanding how today's buyers make their decisions. The solution? Turn off your Seller Mind and turn on your Buyer Mind. It's simple but surprisingly difficult.

The 4 Decisive Moments you must address are:
1. Now-or Never Moment (your first fleeting contact, usually via the web)
2. Make-or Break Moment (does your customer buy, or not?)
3. Keep-or Lose Moment (does your customer buy again and again?)
4. Multiplier Moment (does you customer endorse and refer you?)

As marketing manager of a web strategy firm, I was most enamoured with the NOW OR NEVER MOMENT:
These 3 quotes by Bob Bloom really resonated with me:

"There is no better business investment than a well designed, well functioning, customer centric website - it can make your business 1st choice at the first point of contact." (page 77)

"Most home pages do not clearly define the single most important benefit the seller is offering, so the buyers finger instantly clicks the seller into oblivion." (page 74)

"You and your entire organisation must learn how to win today's Internet-informed buyer, who routinely gets smart online before buying from from a supplier or a store offline." (page 82)

Like in his previous book Inside Advantage, it feels like Bob is consulting directly to you as the reader and sharing his four decades of experience in an independent, unbiased way.

A must read for marketers, advertisers, entrepreneurs and sales professionals!

A small book , but it punches above its weight class. The author , who is a good writer, lays out where and how you need to meet and exceed buyer needs and expectations in order to make, keep and continue a sale. He makes a very good case on why and how you need to think like a buyer at all times. His examples are drawn from b2b and b2c experience making this a very good general use book.

The book The New Experts by Robert Bloom is a solid book providing valuable information in understanding consumer buying behavior. Those 4 decisive moments are very important to understand, and even if it is common sense to some, I am willing to bet most organizations overlook those moments. I very much enjoyed the writing style, the book is easy to read, has great practical examples, and all the key points are highlighted.

I think the thought that came back to me the most while reading this book, is that there are very few organizations that are truly engaged with the buyers, they still have that sellers mentality and as technology and our world contiunes to evolve, that sellers mentality will not be successful.

Thank you Mr. Bloom for sharing your insight in this book.

Robert Bloom states truths that we are not always willing to hear but that we need to (have to) know in order to build sustainable businesses. Consumer behavior has shifted and this book offers pragmatic observations that your business can use. I absolutely would recommend this book to anyone who is looking to think forward about their marketing strategies.

Format: Hardcover
Today's customers hold vast power, and they know it. They can choose from an endless array of products and services. The Internet keeps them informed about companies and their offerings and enables them to purchase items from virtually anywhere across the globe. How do firms survive in this challenging buyer-centric market? Business growth maven Robert H. Bloom offers some expert ideas. Through numerous valuable, informative case histories of successful and unsuccessful businesses, he shows how to win even the toughest customers. Though his book is easy to read, some of its points - for example, offer great service after the sale, be likable, think like the customer - are fairly pedestrian precepts any responsible company tries to meet. Still, Bloom offers useful sales guidance and interesting vignettes of companies that work hard to exceed customer expectations. getAbstract recommends his book to corporate leaders, as well as to marketing, sales, and operations and customer-service managers.
