Guy Kawasaki, who is one of my favorite regular blog reads and speakers, is the author of The Art of the Start, which is a quick and worthwhile read for anybody thinking about starting up their own company.
One of the 10 things you should do, according to his book, is “Make Mantra.” I absolutely loved this, because it accurately describes what all truly innovative companies are doing and, more tellingly, what a lot of big companies are not doing.
I think that Papa John’s has “Made Mantra” with their focus on making it easy for the customer to order. They’ve sold over $1 billion of pizza via their online ordering tools. According to the CNN article, it’s just the start of likely dozens of new ways a Papa John’s customer can order.
Now that’s a mantra–make it easy to order.
So what are you doing to make it easy for your customer to buy more of your products? Or more often? Or more efficiently?
