About this Episode

In this MarTech Interview, we speak to Jay Baer. A New York Times best-selling author of six books, Jay is an inductee in the Professional Speaking and Word-of-Mouth Marketing Halls of Fame. Jay's newest book Talk Triggers, with co-author Daniel Lemin, is the complete guide to creating customers with word of mouth.

Word of mouth is directly responsible for 19% of all purchases, and influences as much as 90%. Every human on earth relies on word of mouth to make buying decisions.

  • More than 30 detailed case studies of extraordinary results from Doubletree Hotels by Hilton, The Cheesecake Factory, Penn & Teller and dozens of delightful small and medium-sized businesses
