Nothing has changed the business environment more than the WWW, in the last 20 years. Now, with the Apple platform and its glittering array of devices supporting Facebook, Twitter and Google the customer is not only right … the customer rules!

Today, WOMBATs are customers who, in their own right, are global publishers, broadcasters, niche marketers, content-providers and network producers and all well aware of the fact.

To help businesses create new customers Michael Hewitt-Gleeson has written WOMBAT Selling: How to sell by Word of Mouth.

– A WOMBAT is a satisfied customer who replicates another satisfied customer.
– W.O.M.B.A.T. = Word Of Mouth Buy And Tell.
– A WOMBAT is a customer who is so satisfied about your offer (or your business communication) that s/he passes it on to those in her/his business or social network.
– WOMBATs pass it on. Pass it on. Pass it on.
-  WOMBATs replicate. Replicate. Replicate.

WOMBAT solves ‘the customer problem’

WOMBAT is the killer app for selling. The WOMBAT strategy is based on the selling switchuncheck2check. Use the switch to multiply your customers by ten for an immediate surge in an individual’s sales results, or, for a much better return on enterprise marketing. The selling switchuncheck2checkwas researched and designed by Dr Michael Hewitt-Gleeson as part of his PhD, the first in the world on lateral thinking. His external examiner was the legendary American pollster and market scientist, Dr George Gallup Sr of The Gallup Poll.

You have created the first new strategy for selling in 50 years. You have presented a new approach to a very old subject with proof that your ideas do work. There are parallels with your ideas and how I think advertising works. Your thesis also has the quality of being very well written.  – George Gallup.

The NewSell Switchuncheck2check–is written up in Hewitt-Gleeson’s books on the theory and practise of selling. They are: NewSell; The XIO Memeplex: Multiply Your Busines By Ten! and WOMBAT Selling: How to sell by Word of Mouth.

Measuring America’s Decline, in Three Charts

In recent years, a number of international surveys have raised alarms that the United States is falling behind other countries in terms of educational achievement. Now there is another one, and its findings represent a serious threat to the country’s future prosperity.

In basic literacy, numeracy, and problem-solving skills, the new study shows, younger Americans are at or near the bottom of the standings among advanced countries.

The Decline of Small Business Is a Five-Alarm Fire Leaders Are Ignoring …

by Jim Clifton, Chairman of Gallup, Author The Coming Jobs War

Please don’t tell me that the American economy is moving in the right direction, however slowly, which I hear from politicians and commentators all the time. It isn’t. Not even close.

Key economic metrics offer no encouragement at all — the two big ones, GDP and unemployment, are both woefully inadequate, regardless of what people say. Sure, unemployment as measured by the Department of Labor has gone down, but this is only because the denominator of how many are in the workforce has decreased and is really low as a percent of the population. Meanwhile, GDP will have grown only 1.9% in 2012, which is pathetic. After a serious recession, the economy historically gets one big bounce. It hasn’t happened yet.
