How can you connect better with buyers?

So many B2B professionals think using words like “digitalization”, “seamless” and “customer experience” will do the trick, but what you end up getting is the opposite effect.

Show Notes

Christine Calvert has worked with writing and communication for 30 years as a copywriter, a global web editor, lecturer and college professor.

As Norway’s only Text Doctor, she was voted as 2019 best keynote speaker by Confex, holds tons of communication courses, written two books about writing and is working on her third book, as we speak.

In this episode, we talk about:
  • Our mutual love of books
  • How brands can make themselves more human
  • Why corporate B.S. can make your brand boring and what to do about it
  • The story behind her signature golden shoes
  • How anything can be interesting if you find the right angle
  • Why writing to yourself is a mistake and why you should write to a persona instead
  • How to find your own voice and make it heard
  • Why the customer journey is a misnomer - there's no such thing as a linear buying process
