Who comes first, the employee or the customer? ...By Phil Davitt - NewVoiceMedia

Who comes first, the employee or the customer?

I was visiting a client last week and we started talking about the recent trend in customer experience which suggests that customers should come first over everything else. Over profits and stakeholders, over processes and policies and over employees. Although this sort of thinking has the right intentions, I think it’s a little misguided and could do more harm than good in the long run. 

While giving your customers a great experience is a fundamental requirement of any business, if you neglect your employees how long will they continue to give this great experience? A great experience for the customers starts with a great experience for the employees.

Olympic “sharing-fest” to be a goldmine for marketers

Samsung, Omega and Panasonic the most reliant Olympic partners on Dark Social sharing
 Six-in-10 Britons interested in the Olympics will share content online about it – according to research from marketing technology experts RadiumOne, which reveals the what, how and how much of sharing content around the 2016 games in Rio.


Over four-in-10 (43%) of these sharers will share Olympic content on a daily basis during the games. One-third of sharers say the Olympics means they’ll share more content then they’d normally do over a two-week period.

Smartphones (42% of sharers) will be the most popular device for sharing Olympic content, followed by laptops (35%) and tablets (25%).

“The sharing-fest that is the Olympics is a goldmine for marketers to tap into consumer interest, particularly as the games are on a non-commercial TV channel,” says Craig Tuck, RadiumOne’s UK managing director. “Sharing content online indicates a strong degree of interest among those sharing plus the additional layer of people they identify as also being interested in that content.”
