From the Inside Flap
Imagine a world where red carpets were rolled out for you wherever you went and you were always greeted by name and with a smile. Imagine being admired and complimented by strangers on a daily basis. Imagine if those who did business with you always bent over backwards to cater to your personal desires and needs. If that sounds like a fantasyland, it is. And it's called Hollywood.

Every day, Hollywood's biggest superstars live out that fantasy, receiving red-carpet treatment virtually everywhere they go. But they aren't the only ones. More and more, companies are realizing that when they treat their customers like VIPs, those customers keep coming back and help spread the word.

For business owners, entrepreneurs, or anyone who works in a service industry, The Celebrity Experience shows how to turn customers into lifelong, adoring clients by delivering consistent red-carpet customer service. Based on hundreds of interviews with professionals who exclusively serve celebrity clients, author Donna Cutting shows you how to make every customer feel like a superstar.

Combining the best practices of the Hollywood celebrity scene with those of the business world, The Celebrity Experience presents simple, effective ways to:

  • Make red-carpet first impressions on new customers
  • Give them what they want and earn customers for life
  • Generate buzz and positive word-of-mouth by delivering what you promise
  • Improve your customer service performance by putting employees first
  • Develop the creativity and flexibility to deliver on every customer request
  • Succeed by putting your customers' interests ahead of your own
In addition to celebrity ideas you can implement in your business immediately, The Celebrity Experience also includes stories from celebrities themselves and real-world examples of successful companies that go above and beyond to deliver impeccable service for their customers. Today, it's often customer service that separates good companies from great ones. The Celebrity Experience shows you how to put your business on the customer service A-list.
