Jay Baer, Founder of Convince & Convert and co-author of Talk Triggers, joins the Social Pros Podcast to discuss his new book and word of mouth marketing.
Strategic Word of Mouth
Adspace, social, content creation—there are so many ways to get your business in front of people. The question becomes, which is the most effective?
Any successful business owner will tell you that word of mouth is the best way to spread the word about your brand and get people excited. In their new book, Jay Baer and Daniel Lemin lay out the framework for creating a “talk trigger,” which is specifically engineered to get your customers talking.
The four corners of this framework are what they call “The Four R’s.” Your talk trigger must be remarkable, relevant, reasonable, and repeatable. Using these as your guide, you can craft a talk trigger around your business to start generating real and effective word of mouth!
In This Episode
- How offline word of mouth differs from online word of mouth.
- Why you need to give your customers a story to tell.
- Why a talk trigger is not “surprise and delight.”
- The four “R’s” of a successful talk trigger:
