Another One Bites The Dust: JetBlue’s Broken Promises

I’m not angry, JetBlue. I’m just disappointed. Ok, I’m actually pretty miffed, as are many, many others. Last November, when JetBlue announced upcoming changes to its baggage policy and its plans to chop legroom, I wasn’t worried that my flying experience would worsen. Though I’m a frequent JetBlue flier, I’ve checked a bag only twice (Read More...)

What Does Your Brand Stand For? No, Really.

Have you heard of CrossFit? It’s a style of workouts “comprised of constantly varied functional movements (like pushing, pulling, squatting, lifting, running) executed at high intensity.” People that do CrossFit don’t just go to the gym.

Q&A About Brand, Marketing, & Customer Experience

Last week I did a webinar with the fine folks at the Society of Digital Agencies about the disconnect among brand, marketing, and customer experience (CX) that exists in many organizations. My advice to the attendees, who were (unsurprisingly) mostly from digital agencies, was to strive to connect the marketing promises that they create with (Read More...)
