SIMPLE brand #96 - Jim Knight: Service That Rocks: Create Unforgettable Experiences and Turn Customers into Fans


In this week’s episode of the SIMPLE brand podcast, I talk with Jim Knight, author of Service That Rocks: Create Unforgettable Experiences and Turn Customers into Fans!


Jim’s the former head of global training for Hard Rock International - so you KNOW he’s great at teaching people how to deliver rock star experiences.


Today he’s an international keynote speaker and expert in leadership, training and development, and customer experience.



And Jim’s the author of three best-selling books including his latest - Service That Rocks!


If you heard my previous episode with Brittany Hodak then you know that you shouldn’t just settle for creating loyal customers. Your goal should be to deliver an experience to your customers that turns them into raving fans.


And that’s just what Jim teaches as well.


Some of the topics we discuss include:

  • How rock bands and brands are similar in how the biggest ones create fans
  • Why the customer experience is the most important piece of your brand
  • Employees’ behaviors are valuable in delivering the customer experience
  • You need to constantly communicate how your brand values translate into your employees’ roles
  • Your customers see your employees as the brand
  • How to create unique experiences that differentiate from the competition
  • The value of empowering your employees
  • The four-letter words you don’t want customers to use to describe your customer experience
  • A secret to turn customers into fans is treating them like rockstars
