*Who we are*
GasPedal is the company that manages WordofMouth.org and SocialMedia.org.
Businesses everywhere are beginning to realize that honest, ethical
customer love is the most powerful kind of marketing. They are learning to
listen, to obsess over customer experience, to treat people like people, to
value values, to respect the environment, to be part of the community -- to
We teach them how to do it.
We believe that this is good for society -- and that it's a profitable
business strategy. Companies that get their customers for free through the
power of word of mouth have a fundamental competitive advantage over those
that use expensive marketing to chase fleeing customers. Smart companies
reinvest those savings in service, support, and innovation -- putting them
even further ahead.
This is a dream job if you're interested in social media, amazing customer
service, or the future of marketing. You won't just be reading about the
visionaries. You'll be working with them to make the future more ethical
and effective. Stop talking about this stuff -- do something about it.
