Cameron Mitchell said, “The answer is Yes. What is the question?” That’s a powerful testament to the importance of customer service. The focus of our luncheon this month is customer engagement and our panelists are two dynamic women who know that the customer is queen! Elizabeth Blount-McCormick is the President of UNIGLOBE Travel Designers. She manages clients and customers around the globe and has insight into customer service best practices you don’t want to miss. Kim Shoemaker is the President of Acloche, the largest locally owned staffing agency. She is no stranger to the importance of customer engagement and client care. Come ready to learn and connect with these two talented business women.

GREENCREST will co-host a “Google Partners Connect” event on Nov. 15 with Google to uncover how businesses can employ mobile strategies in their marketing to capture more customers using their smartphones for such searches.

The event will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Nov. 15 at GREENCREST, 120 Northwoods Blvd., Columbus, Ohio, 43235. The event is free, but space is limited. Lunch will be provided.

At the upcoming event, Google and GREENCREST, a Google Partner Agency, will share trends, research and insights that can help businesses reach customers in the right place and at the right time. About 77 percent of Americans now own a smartphone, according to Pew Research. That figure, coupled with these other statistics from Google, prove the value of having the right mobile strategy in place:

  • Mobile searches have grown by 80 percent in the past two years.
  • About 40 percent of online transactions are done on mobile devices.
  • Mobile searches for “where to buy” grew more than 85 percent in the past two years.

As a certified Google Partner Agency, GREENCREST has demonstrated AdWords skills and expertise and has helped clients grow their customer base and revenue.
