Purple Goldfish 2.0

Are you looking to stand out from your competition?

Uhh, is that even a question? Of course, you are! Unfortunately, nearly every other marketer is, too... So, how can your brand stand out in a sea of sameness?

Purple Goldfish 2.0 is not your ordinary business book. It fundamentally aims to change the paradigm of what we do in business and how we do it. It offers 10 ways to attract raving customers. Purple represents "a little extra" whereas the goldfish stands for "differentiation." A Purple Goldfish is defined as any time a business purposely goes above and beyond to provide a little something extra to differentiate the experience and honor the relationship. It's a marketing investment back into your customer base. It's that unexpected surprise that's thrown in for good measure to achieve product differentiation, drive retention, and promote word of mouth.

Why this book is needed?

We've lost focus in marketing. We've been so laser-focused on automating our marketing to prospects that we've forgotten to deliver an exceptional experience once they've become customers. Advertising is no longer the answer. Traditional media is expensive, fragmented, and for the most part ineffective. Customer support is non-existent. We're too busy outsourcing it. We've developed complex loyalty programs that confuse customers and only promise future benefits. What we really need is a concept that differentiates our brand, promotes retention, and generates word of mouth at the time of purchase. We call that concept a Purple Goldfish.

Call to Action

Your brand today is no longer just what you tell people it is. It's what your customer experiences, how they feel, and, most importantly-what they tell others about that experience." The entire premise of Purple Goldfish 2.0 is that the customer must come first. Customer experience should be the biggest priority. Stop focusing on "the two in the bush" (prospects) and take care of "the one in your hand" (your customer). Take care of the customers you have. When you provide them with a memorable experience, they'll bring you the customers you want.

The book is broken up into three main parts: Part 1 - (The Why) The case for focusing on customer experience.

Part 2 - (The What) 10 types of Purple Goldfish in the categories of value and maintenance.

Part 3 - (The How) The four-step I. D. E. A. process for creating a Purple Goldfish.
