what we learned from ROBIN

The need for marketers to experience the end-to-end process.

Understanding what customer experience is about — focusing on their experience, not our experience.

Being an easy partner to work with is also an important part of customer experience.

The best marketing engine you can create is word of mouth.

Your communication skills will either make you succeed or fail in business.
