EP 287: Talk Triggers – Creating Customers with Word of Mouth w/Jay Baer
Did you know that in a recent study, it was found that word of mouth resulted in 50-91% of a company’s sales – yet most companies don’t have a strategy for word of mouth marketing.
That’s the reason Jay Baer, founder of Convince & Convert, decided to focus his next book on how to develop a word of mouth marketing strategy.
The new book, “Talk Triggers,” was released in the last two weeks and based on early sales, it seems to be another best-selling book in the making.
