    Evolving from the premise that customers have always behaved more like cats than Pavlov’s dogs, Waiting for Your Cat to Bark examines how emerging media have undermined the effectiveness of prevailing mass marketing models and created an unprecedented opportunity for businesses to redefine how they communicate with customers by leveraging the power of increasingly interconnected media channels. The authors don’t simply explain the shift in paradigm; Waiting for Your Cat to Bark introduces Persuasion Architecture® as the synthetic model that provides business with a proven context for rethinking customers and retooling marketers in a rewired market.

    Readers will learn:

    • Why many marketers are unprepared for today’s increasingly fragmented, in-control, always-on audience who make pin-point relevance mandatory.
    • How interactivity has changed the nature of marketing by extending its reach into the world of sales, design, merchandizing, and customer relations.
    • How Persuasion Architecture® allows businesses to create powerful, multi-channel persuasive systems that anticipate customer needs.
    • How Persuasion Architecture® allows businesses to measure and optimize the return on investment for every discreet piece of that persuasive system

    I am completely impressed with the book “Call to Action” and it has markedly improved our business. After reading it I purchased six copies and made it mandatory reading for our marketing department in the US. We started making changes to the site based on the information provided in the book. In just *two* weeks we had increased our conversions by 33%. While that number is good we believe that we will far surpass it as we make more and more changes. The bottom line – we have about one million customers showing up at our site per month so the additional conversion is truly impactful even now – “Call to Action” X 7 copies = 33% increased conversion rate = the BEST roi we’re ever going to see.
