When customers are truly thrilled about their experience with your product or service, they become outspoken "evangelists" for your company. Savvy marketing professionals are discovering that this group of satisfied believers can be converted into a potent marketing tool to grow their customer universe.

From their research into the best practices of some of the most forward-thinking companies, McConnell and Huba outline and explain the six basic tenets of creating customer evangelists:
· Customer plus-delta: Continuously gather customer feedback.
· Napsterize knowledge: Make it a point to share knowledge freely.
· Build the buzz: Expertly build word-of-mouth networks.
· Create community: Encourage communities of customers to meet and share.
· Make bite-size chunks: Devise specialized, smaller offerings to get customers to bite.
· Create a cause: Focus on making the world, or your industry, better.

These in-depth company profiles provide real-life examples of evangelism marketing at work, including the opportunities and pitfalls of specific campaigns.
