    How to make ‘customer experience’ more than a buzzword

    It seems almost everyone today is talking about “customer experience.” It has become the retail buzzword du jour, ranking with such classics as “taking it to the next level,” “thinking outside the box,” or my personal favorite, “right-sizing,” (does anyone ever feel “right” after they’ve been “sized” to the unemployment line? And as with so many other buzzwords, the meaning becomes cloudier with increased usage. Ask five people to describe what it means to deliver a great customer experience, and you’ll get several different answers, although most will likely describe something akin to what used to be called ...

    Who’s the J.K. Rowling of furniture? Learn how to tell your story

    As a reporter, my job is to listen to stories and retell them. So it should come as no surprise that one of the most common statements I hear is: We have a great story, and we just need to tell it. Actually, it’s not quite that simple. A story is only as good as the storyteller. Most people are not blessed with the gift of great storytelling, and there’s a good reason why they call it an art. Since we’re all toiling away in the furniture business short of the wealth and fame of J.K ...
