EP 109.  Turn your customers into lifelong advocates -- SUPERFANS! Brittany Hodak tells your how from her Creating Superfans book, including: the S.U.P.E.R. model, how to exceed expectations, and the important role every employee can play in brand storytelling. Plus, Brittany's giving you the first four chapters for free!



Superfans are key to long-term brand success, as they become lifelong advocates that drive business and engagement. But many companies miss the mark when it comes to creating them, even in a world where it’s easier than ever to reach your target customer.


For this episode, I’ve invited an impressive guest to help guide us in creating superfans. Brittany Hodak is an award-winning entrepreneur, customer experience speaker, and author of my recent read, Creating Superfans. The book details her 5-part framework for building a SUPER customer experience, and she’s sharing steps you can take to follow this model.


Brittany and I cover the reasons many brands are failing in fostering relationships with customers, the importance of personalization, and ways companies are ignoring one of their most prized assets in their storytelling plans.
