Are your customer interactions focused on you or them?

@Bob London joins @Jeff Breunsbach this week to talk about the importance of moving away from a product-centric conversation into one that not only increases impact and alignment, but keeps your customers coming back to the table.

Some practical tips that you can begin incorporating immediately are:

  • Make it a conversation rather than just another presentation
  • Bring information about how other similar companies are using your product to spur ideas
  • Be sure to include both strategic and tactical components in your interactions
  • Understand the needs of the industry so your role moves into a partnership rather than a reactive one

Have you ever had a negative reaction to the shift in focus?
