Customer Is King

This practical hands-on book is for anyone running a business, or for professional marketers who have found that their methods don’t work anymore.

With the fast, proven techniques in this book, you look at your business through your customer’s eyes, understanding what they really want and, ultimately get them to buy more from you – and to buy again and again.

The case studies, checklists, worksheets and ‘frequently asked questions’ in the book give you a clearer understanding of what you are trying to do, and why and how you are going to do it.

‘In Customer Is King, Robert Craven says that your ‘whole business hinges on what your customer gets from you’. I agree wholeheartedly…’ Sir Richard Branson
