Do you know what happens when a customer connects with your contact center? Not just the way in which he or she is routed to an agent, or the information accessed during the interaction— but what really happens in the conversation that makes the encounter an exceptional one? Do you have any insight into how your agent responded to that individual user, or a way to proactively ensure that other prospects and customers on any channel can have a consistent and positive experience? Are you leveraging all employees in your organization who have a stake in the customer experience, either directly or because their job influences the process?

“It’s not what you know. It’s who you know.”
We’ve all heard the phrase. We all understand there’s truth to it. But ask yourself: would you recommend
or hire everyone you know? No way.
Having the right connections is important to advancing your career. But it’s only half the battle.
What really creates opportunity is defining your personal brand to your employer, to your network, to the
market. It’s taking that moment when you make a great impression and scaling it to the larger world.
This guide presents different approaches real professionals are using to build their brands. You’ll see tips
and strategies that you can use to become an in-demand finance leader, including a system we developed
called the ROLE Model of personal branding.
In the age of effortless connection, cultivating a personal brand is essential. It’s not just who you know.
It’s what they know you can do.
The Issue: The Content and Commerce Divide
Commerce and digital marketing teams tell a familiar story. The commerce team launches an online store on a commerce platform. Commerce and IT focus on the platform and evolve it as the online business grows—focusing on basics such as PCI compliance and product information and expand-ing to more complex integrations. Now they want to add content, such as reviews and engaging media, that will inform and guide shoppers.
Meanwhile, the digital marketing team regards the online store as a missed branding and engagement opportunity and tries to jump in and contribute only to find that the system can’t meet their needs. So marketing goes outside to a digital agency, pays for a separate microsite, and takes their creative production needs elsewhere. And thus a classic divide is formed.
