Why This Book Hits the Mark
Much has been written and discussed about building stronger customer relationships, especially in relation to trust and loyalty. But a huge component has been missing...until now.
Addicted Customers provides you with information you have seen nowhere else. Based on solid research in psychology, combined with real world methodologies, you will learn:
Do you feel you need to compete on price, convenience and incentives at the expense of customer relationships? The psychological principles in Addicted Customers will help keep your business strategies from working at cross-purposes that erode profits and loyalty.
Customer 2.0
This is new era. Customers will take low prices and convenience when offered, but they won't reward them with loyalty. Customers DO want trusting and close relationships because these types of bonds reduce stress and help them adapt to a rapidly changing world. BUT, these relationships don't happen by chance.
More than Customer Experience Management (CEM)

It's worth saying again. You won't see this information anywhere else. CEM practitioners place a heavy emphasis on making the selling environment more appealing. This is an essential first step. Addicted Customers goes to the next level. Its psycho-economic framework enables you to win customer mindshare.

It is not just theory. The book provides practical ways to put the principles into action. It also provides rich and diverse examples of companies that are doing so today, companies who are reaping the benefits.
