    I am all about equity, not just income — and the only real equity in most businesses, and the best equity to be had in any and every business is a very, very, very “sticky” bond by relationship with customers. Sadly, most businesspeople invest far more in pursuit of the next new buyer than in, as Jim puts it, strengthening an everlasting bond with already acquired customers. His book sets everybody straight on this and lays out a sensible plan for getting it right, incorporating the very best glue I know of and have used personally to make and sustain multiple businesses and a fortune: the customer newsletter. Read this book. Build equity.

    Yes! Finally! An easy-to-read, easier-to-apply handbook on keeping your clients around for the long haul! Jim’s done it! You can throw money at list-building, website traffic, lead generation and mass-marketing all day long, but unless you can make that client relationship ‘Sticky’ – you are burning money! The visual of ‘retention’ as the plug in your leaky bucket is priceless and valid for any business model

    As the world of marketing and business continues to accelerate at a dizzying rate with more technology, more ‘must have’ gadgets, and more new-fangled things you ‘must be doing,’ Jim Palmer takes an appropriate pause and gives the reader a look at what truly helps build a sustainable business – strong customer retention strategies. Kudos to Jim for focusing on the importance of creating a strong marketing foundation by making your customers stick like glue.

    Jim’s advice on customer retention over the past six years has been instrumental in growing my company from a three-person start-up to a multi-million-dollar operation with over 300 corporate clients in less than three years – even in a challenging marketplace. Keeping profitable customers happy has done more for my own peace of mind than any other business practice. Protect your most valuable asset – your best customers – and teach your employees to do the same: live by the words in Stick Like Glue!

    Once again Jim Palmer over delivers – and why wouldn’t he, that’s what his new book is all about. Stick Like Glue is a business plan just waiting to be implemented. I’ve built my business on many of these same principals over the years and Jim now presents them in one easy to use resource – I urge you to get your high-lighter out and start implementing these principles today. Your business will be both more fruitful and more fun if you take action.

    I’d recommend anything Jim Palmer puts his name to. Jim knows what it takes to attract and keep clients coming back over and over again. As Dan Kennedy says, ‘Retention is the new acquisition’ and Jim Palmer is the ‘retention expert.

    Jim Palmer is a master of growing businesses and keeping his clients and customers happy and loyal. His most recent book: Stick Like Glue is a goldmine of techniques for growing a loyal customer base and how to make it continually more and more profitable. His first chapter alone on acquisition and retention can make you more money than many week long seminars and courses costing thousands of dollars. Want to be richer in every way? Get this book and do one new thing each month. It’s that easy with Jim’s help.

    Jim Palmer has done it again. In his first book, The Magic of Newsletter Marketing, Jim explained how to use newsletters to create a strong relationship with your customers. Now, in the same no-fluff conversational style, Jim gives dozens of ideas for keeping the customers you’ve worked so hard to get. You can trust Jim’s advice because it comes from 30 years of working directly with customers. He knows what he’s talking about, and the stories he shares that his strategies work. The Sticky Notes sprinkled throughout the chapters and summary Sticking Points at the end of each chapter make it easy to find and remember the key points. This is a book you’ll refer to often if one of your goals is to keep customers from doing business with your competitors.

    Too many business people think of getting a customer as a one time event. Instead Jim Palmer describes how to turn that one-time event into a series of transactions for many years to come. Jim book reveals the single-most important marketing tool any of my members use.

    Jim Palmer’s book Stick Like Glue is an amazing resource every business owner needs – whether you’re a seasoned veteran, a brand new business owner, or fall somewhere in between. Referrals are one of the best sources of new business and if you employ the strategies Jim has laid out for you here, you’re almost certain to increase your referrals, and your overall business in the process (and have a lot of fun doing it). This is a must-read, incredibly valuable resource for anybody looking to get real referrals that will turn into clients who also refer.

    Stick Like Glue is the ultimate resource for building and maintaining strong relationships with your customers. Through many examples, Jim displays the genuine approach he’s taken over the years to form everlasting bonds with his customers. These tips are sure stick with entrepreneurs and business owners alike.

    Jim, Your book, Stick Like Glue, hit the nail right on the head for my industry! As a both a real estate coach and Realtor I can tell you too many agents relaxed and left their past clients in the dark and took them for granted. Your book has so many strategies agent and brokers can implement immediately to see results in the next 45 days. I highly recommend this book for anyone in real estate, a small business owner, or an entrepreneur.

    It would be easy to skim through Jim Palmer’s book, Stick Like Glue, and think I already know this stuff. I already KNOW it’s important to build strong relationships with my clients. I already KNOW how to create raving fans. I already KNOW customer newsletters are a good idea. It might be easy to think that. But, it would be a huge mistake!
    Here’s why. You would miss out on all the great stories and lessons Jim shares that might spark an idea for you. This book is chock full of them. Personally, I went through this book with a highlighter and a pen, taking notes in the margins. And I loved the little sticky notes posted every other page or so with key concepts or quotes. I’m already improving my business with these gems.
    Stick Like Glue is super easy to read and Jim’s suggestions are easy to implement. Oh, but here’s the thing. You have to actually implement for them to work. So if you’re someone who actually puts good ideas to work, then I highly recommend you go to StickLikeGlueBook.com and order your copy right now. Go! Go!

    If you’re looking for how to create an everlasting bond with your customers so they spend more, stay longer, and refer more, then I recommend Jim’s book, Stick Like Glue. This is head and shoulders one of the most important business books I’ve read this year and recommend it for every entrepreneur, especially during a difficult economy.

    Jim has the knowledge, understanding and experience to guide you through what you should do, and importantly what you shouldn’t do to improve your business. Not only is he the “Newsletter Guru,” but after reading this book he should be the “Marketing Guru.” This book should be required reading for every small business owner in the country. It’s that good.

    Jim, I liked your book, Stick Like Glue – How to Create an Everlasting Bond with Your Customers So They Spend More, Stay Longer, and Refer More!, so much, that I just bought ten more copies for my staff and friends. It is now “highly suggested” reading for all my employees! And, I have some friends that I know will love reading it as well. Thanks for a great book!

    Jim Palmer’s book “Stick like Glue” is a must read for anyone in a business that has customers. (That is ALL of us!) I am on my third time through the book–there are so many nuggets! Jim’s style of writing is so easy to understand and to the point. Use this book to create an everlasting bond with your customers and they will stick to you like glue! Thanks, Jim!

    Jim, I just finished your book, Stick Like Glue, and it is without a doubt the best book on Customer Retention I’ve ever read! I loved your stories on over the top customer service, going the extra mile, and the real lifetime value of a customer…they really helped drive home your point for me.
    In addition, I love how you weaved in Referrals, Loyalty Programs, and JV’s (and much more!). They do go with customer retention, as you pointed out, but they were unexpected…yet really appreciated.
    Thanks for writing Stick Like Glue … this is a must-read for every entrepreneur!
