I was honored to follow Spanx Founder Sara Blakely’s husband, and inspirational fireball, Jesse Itzler, the keynote at IPPA - Independent Payroll Providers Association’s Spring Summit in Vegas. Loved talking about modern marketing, digital transformation strategy, and how we help folks with our people platform along with my amazing colleague, Payroll Network Sales VP Brian McVicker, Ahola’s Marketing Director Sonya Ahola and guHRoo CEO Matt Vaadi. Our topic was the “Riches are in the Niches” and the importance of segmentation, differentiation and automation, was prevalent throughout our panel discussion and the conference. I was so grateful that one of the questions that Matt asked me was: What is something special you have done for your customers lately? I shared that we recently gave our clients a Valentine’s Day present - Giving & Volunteering software that enables employees to give to the charity of their choice. Here’s how it works. Using myself as an example, I can login to our People Platform, click on Giving & Volunteering, and search for Ukrainian charities. Within seconds, I can choose UNHCR, earmark Ukrainian refugees, and make an automatic bi-weekly donation from my payroll. Creating customer loyalty is all about relationship building and human emotion. Emotion is the way we are wired to make decisions and choices. Storytelling with emotion and detail was the number one key to success for serial entrepreneur Jesse Itzler. Here are some other key takeaways from his keynote:
