Ali McGill on how a focus on customer experience could transform your business - MPAF99

In this episode I talk to customer experience expert Ali McGill.

How a focus on customer experience could transform your business

Welcome to episode 99 of the Marketing Protection and Finance Podcast.

Who Ali McGill?

Ali is founder of Ashton McGill . He's passionate about people, and frustrated by the way many organisations behave today. He says don't care about their staff or customers. Profit has become their only measure of success. They have no soul.

He's on a mission to help companies create better customer experiences. To help them understand compassion,empathy, and treating people well.

What you'll hear about in this episode:

  • How constructive discontent points the way to a better customer experience
  • The folly that sees $500bn on marketing in the US but only $9bn on customer experience
  • The importance of asking how your customers feel about your service
  • How to use "Rip and Mix" to take learning from other sectors

What is the Marketing Finance and Protection (MPAF) Podcast?

It’s the Podcast for Financial Services Professionals looking to share business ideas and inspiration in the world of Marketing, Protection and Finance.

The MPAF Podcast is a 30 minute audio show you download from http://rogeredwards.co.uk/MPAF, iTunes or Stitcher Radio. Each week I’ll be interviewing financial services providers, advisers, experts and journalists.

Interviews to listen to in the car, on the train or on the treadmill.

The main focus of the podcast is on what we can do to make finance more accessible to the consumer and how financial services professionals can develop and promote their businesses.

We’ll look at financial services products, interesting business models and campaigns with an emphasis on the following:

Marketing – talking about how financial services professionals can develop and promote their businesses using traditional marketing tools but focussing on modern content marketing and social media techniques.

Protection – talking about life insurance, critical illness, income protection and other protection products

Finance – talking about pensions, platforms, savings and investments

My aim is to make sure that you will get one or two big business ideas that you can apply to our own business.  Whether it is a sales idea, advice idea, product tweak or simply an app that is worth looking at.

I’m your host, Roger Edwards.

A marketing guy from Edinburgh I help people like you with your marketing strategy, content and social media. Until I set up my own business I was in and out of senior marketing roles in UK Financial Services Companies for two decades. Some of you might remember me as the Marketing Director and Managing Director of Bright Grey and Scottish Provident.
