Delight The Weird
Here’s a fun post by Seth Godin, marketing master:
Everyone who stays at your hotel expects the same sort of service, and it’s difficult to wow them, because, of course, your competition is working to do the same thing.
But of course, it’s not everyone. Some people travel with their dogs, and they’re used to being disrespected. What if you gave those people a choice of a dozen dog toys, three dog beds and a special dog run out back?
When you delight the weird, the overlooked and the outliers, they are significantly more likely to talk about you and recommend you.
