    [Marketing] Making a LIST For Your Customers
    Does marketing need to adjust their terminology? When we’re working with new clients at Bonsai , one of the first things we ask is how their customer service stands up. It’s crucial to know of any pluses and/or minuses before starting a new campaign. For instance, if a company’s customer service is poor, there could be a very big uphill struggle ahead in terms of brand acceptance. But, if customers have a positive view of you, it’s an extra piece of firepower that can be used in getting the news out about a new product or service. Simple – you use a LIST. Listen. Involve.
