Industry after industry is becoming technology driven as software rapidly eats the world. As it spreads, so do complexity and opportunity. There are clear signs that the traditional B2B business model designed 125 years ago as a simple “make, sell, ship” approach for early manufacturing companies is no longer capable of delivering the full potential of high-tech and near-tech solutions. B4B seeks to frame what is possible in an age where suppliers are connected to their customers in real time. The traditional world of B2B was designed to sell things to customers, whereas the new B4B model will be about delivering outcomes for customers. It’s a whole new ballgame. Using powerful models and specific examples, B4B envisions a next-generation tech industry where suppliers play an active, ongoing role in helping business customers achieve unparalleled value from their technology investments.

For the first time, the tools are on the table to truly eliminate barriers of cost and complexity created by the last generation of tech. Consumption Economics is the owner’s manual for tech company executives who want to drive their company successfully into the next one.

Why does an entrepreneur struggling through 80 hours a week only make half as much as another working no more than 40? What actions determine whether you end up with a small business pulling in five figures a year or a billion-dollar behemoth blazing a path to market dominance? As an entrepreneur, you're told the secret to success is working hard and fighting your way to the top. But what if this advice came from all the wrong people and places? What if there was more to the success stories you read in magazines, watch on TV or hear on the radio? Uncovering the true secret to success is marketing expert Charles E. Gaudet II's obsession. Gaudet discovered nearly every great organization - whether Apple, Nordstrom, Zappos, FedEx or Disney - follows a stunningly similar formula. And surprisingly, this approach defies the principles followed by most entrepreneurs running businesses today. Gaudet finally reveals why some businesses find growth opportunities in any economic situation and others balance on the edge of failure. His research shows many small business owners seek out success strategies from other small business owners and, for this reason, most remain small. Fortunately, today's advances in technology and media level the playing field, allowing small businesses to compete using a "big-business playbook," even when they don't have a big-business marketing budget. Inside The Predictable Profits Playbook, you'll learn time-tested lessons from leading small business owners and discover how to: Succeed in a down economy Become the preferred provider sought by only the best customers Swipe market share from your competitors Increase margins while growing demand Multiply your prospect-to-sales ratio Boost customer loyalty and build a raving fan base Create predictable and rising profits from one month to the next Become known as a business of excellence The Predictable Profits methodology avoids gimmicks, schemes or stunts - and you won't need to outspend your competitors. Instead, you'll focus on optimizing your existing marketing dollars and delivering the greatest advantages to your customers. Some entrepreneurs want to experience growth and others just wish for it. This book is for the motivated entrepreneur committed to making growth happen."

In this pioneering guide, two business authorities introduce the new discipline of Service Design and reveal why trying new strategies for pleasing customers isn’t enough to differentiate your business—it needs to be designed for service from the ground up. Woo, Wow, and Win reveals the importance of designing your company around service, and offers clear, practical strategies based on the idea that the design of services is markedly different than manufacturing. Bestselling authors and business experts Thomas A. Stewart and Patricia O’Connell contend that most companies, both digital and brick-and-mortar, B2B or B2C; are not designed for service—to provide an experience that matches a customer’s expectations with every interaction and serves the company’s needs. When customers have more choices than ever before, study after study reveals that it’s the experience that makes the difference. To provide great experiences that keep customers coming back, businesses must design their services with as much care as their products. Service Design is proactive—it is about delivering on your promise to customers in accordance with your strategy, not about acceding to customer dictates. Woo, Wow, and Win teaches you how to create "Ahhh" moments when the customer makes a positive judgment, and to avoid Ow" moments—when you lose a sale or worse, customer trust. Whether you’re giving a haircut, selling life insurance, or managing an office building, your customer is as much a part of your business as your employees are. Together, you and customers create a bank of trust; fueled by knowledge of each other’s skills and preferences. This is Customer Capital, the authors explain, and it is jointly owned. But it’s up to you to manage it profitably. Innovative yet grounded in real world examples, Woo, Wow, and Win is the key strategy for winning customers—and keeping them.
