Book Recommendation: Hug Your Haters

Back in October, I had the privilege to meet Jay Baer, author of the recently released book, Hug Your Haters .  Jay is a hilarious orator and has a unique grasp and understanding on approaching marketing and customer service.  Jay explains how you can turn your haters into part of your best marketing tools.

My take away’s are:

  • 80% of Americans trust online reviews
  • Customer service is the new marketing
  • Haters are not your problem…Ignoring them is!
  • Obey the rule of reply no more than twice to anyone who engages you in a complaint
  • Not answering customer complaints decreases customer advocacy

Check out Jay’s presentation, while long, is worth the time to listen:

Jay Bear teaches the following (from his website):

1. The two types of Haters and what they want from you when they complain
