Customers for Life: How to Turn That One-Time Buyer Into a Lifetime Customer
Carl Sewell and Paul B. BrownIn this completely revised and updated edition of the customer service classic (more than 600,000 copies sold), Carl Sewell enhances his time-tested advice with fresh ideas and new examples and explains how the groundbreaking “Ten Commandments of Customer Service” apply to today’s world.Drawing on his incredible success in transforming his Dallas Cadillac dealership into the second largest in America, Carl Sewell revealed the secret of getting customers to return again and again in the original Customers for Life. A lively, down-to-earth narrative, it set the standard for customer service excellence and became a perennial bestseller. Building on that solid foundation, this expanded edition features five completely new chapters, as well as significant additions to the original material, based on the lessons Sewell has learned over the last ten years. Sewell focuses on the expectations and demands of contemporary consumers and employees, showing that businesses can remain committed to quality service in the fast-paced new millennium by sticking to his time-proven approach: Figure out what customers want and make sure they get it. His “Ten Commandants” provide the essential guidelines, including:• Underpromise, overdeliver: Never disappoint your customers by charging them more than they planned. Always beat your estimate or throw in an extra service free of charge• No complaints? Something’s wrong: If you never ask your customers what else they want, how are you going to give it to them?• Measure everything: Telling your employees to do their best won’t work if you don’t know how they can improve • Borrow, borrow, borrow: Sewell, for example, learned about hospitality from Japanese culture, cleanliness from Disney, and politeness from his mother.
Equity: Why Employee Ownership Is Good For Business
Corey Rosen, John Case and Martin StaubusHow employee ownership can pay bottom-line benefits? Today, more than 25 percent of American workers own stock in their employers. You can shop at employee-owned supermarkets such as Publix, buy Gore-Tex fabric from employee-owned W.L. Gore & Associates, and sip coffee served by employee owners at Starbucks. Now Corey Rosen, John Case, and Martin Staubus present convincing evidence that employee ownership can be much more than just a good benefit program. Done right, it can be the foundation for a new - and more effective - model of management. Drawing on first-hand studies of dozens of companies from large corporations to local retailers, the authors show that the "equity model" enables firms to grow faster and more profitably than conventionally run competitors. Vivid examples of both winning and failed attempts at employee ownership reveal the key concepts that make the model successful, and suggest how managers can adapt these strategies for use in their own companies. This lively and practical guide delivers a sound business case for making employees true partners in a firm's success.
Profit by Investing in Real Estate Tax Liens: Earn Safe, Secured, and Fixed Returns Every Time
Larry B. LoftisProfit by Investing in Real Estate Tax Liens, the only tax lien book written by a tax lien investor, has been the top-selling tax lien book since its first release in November, 2004.  In this second edition, attorney and tax lien investor Larry Loftis not only teaches how to invest invest in tax liens and tax deeds, he provides insightful, first-hand experience from his purchases around the United States.  Having purchased millions of dollars of liens (and deeds) in 12 states and attended auctions in 5 additional states, Mr. Loftis provides stories from different locations around the country, giving tips on how to avoid risks, and how to beat the competition.  He provides technical knowledge that only an attorney can provide, as well as "tricks-of-the-trade" that only a seasoned investor can provide.  Profit by Investing in Real Estate Tax Liens also debunks the common myth that tax liens are found only on run-down properties, and shows that liens exist on every type of property. Author Loftis, who has purchased liens on properties owned by famous athletes like NBA stars and world champion boxers, national banks (like Chase Manhattan Bank and LaSalle National Bank), and even a building whose major tenant was the local sheriff's department, reveals that he has seen liens on properties owned by a 9-time Wimbledon champion, a 3-time Masters champion, a Cy Young and World Series winner, a movie icon, an international celebrity athlete/model, and even properties owned by cities, the U.S. Post Office, and even the U.S. government!In this authoritative guide, Loftis helps investors avoid the pitfalls while answering all the key questions they need to consider: * What states are lien states and what states are deed states, and how do they work?* What about the "hybrid" (as Loftis calls them) states like Texas and Georgia?* How does an investor go about bidding at tax sales? And what is the due diligence required?* What are the different requirements in each state? * Where are the risks in this type of investing, and how do I avoid them? * How long do I have to wait to get paid off, and what rate of return can I expect?* How are counties selling liens and deeds using internet auctions, and how do I start?
