Why the Extremes?

by Kevin Wallenbeck February 24, 2010 22:14

I can't figure it out.  If you were to ask me what new vehicle I would purchase (if in fact I ever did purchase a brand new vehicle) ... I would have to give you two different vehicles.

And those vehicles are the EXTREME of one another.  The Dodge Ram 1500 Crew Cab Laramie and the Toyota Prius 3rd Generation V.  How are they extreme?

1. The Toyota nearly fits into the 'trunk' of the Dodge.

2. The Toyota gets 50 mpg and the Dodge 20 mpg.

3. One has Made in America stamped all over it and the other screams foreign.

4. One is considered green and the other a guzzler.

At the end of the day they both would get me from point A to point B.  I'm not sure why two favorites could be so opposite of one another.

How about you?  Do you have your own extremes?

Getting Older

by Kevin Wallenbeck February 19, 2010 09:13

Last year on my birthday I really thought I was a year older ... 37 insteaed of 36.  So, imagine how excited I was when my wife pointed out that I was only turning 36.

I got a whole year of my life back!

So, today I really do turn 37 or so I thought ... my wife tells me happy birthday this morning and says 'how does it feel to be 38'.  It took adding up the years to make sure that 37 it is:)

God is still in control and life is good.

Ways to Keep Your Customers

by Kevin Wallenbeck February 1, 2010 16:37

Back in 2005 I had this great idea to write a book or blog someday called Flip the Funnel.  Since then I've been collecting ideas/thoughts/suggestions based on the experiences at InterAct Websites, Inc..

Wouldn't you know it that someone beat me to the punch with the book, but I've still got the website and have republished the blog.  I'll get the older articles and some newer stuff as well there soon.

Flip the Funnel is an idea/concept based on taking the sales funnel and flipping it upside down to keep more customers in your funnel vs having them escape to a competitor.  Exciting stuff and I've learned alot through our own trials and errors over the past 5 years.

If you are looking for customer rentention best practices and ideas then flipthefunnel.com may be for you.  Check it out!
