Paul is an expert in conversion optimization, and he walks us through how any business can achieve superior results without investing more in paid ads, SEO, content marketing, or other expensive traffic-boosting strategies.

I invited Jay to talk about his latest book, Hug Your Haters, that addresses the fear of engaging with potentially nasty or even mean customers. Jay shares how you can learn to embrace these "haters" and turn them into inspiration for even better customer care.

Jay makes the point that we spend vast amounts of money on marketing and sales in the quest for new customers, but only a tiny fraction of that on serving our current customers.

Tune in to this engaging conversation to discover how you can use customer service as your new marketing plan and bring your customers back time and time again.
