The Outside Perception is how the current and perspective customers perceive the company based on their interactions with the company, their competitors, and their industry. (typically includes marketing communications, voicemail messages, receptionists phone greetings, advertisements, etc).

Businesses that are chosen by their Outside Perception must follow up with a good Inside Reality or else the customer will become disappointed and may go elsewhere for their next purchase. Likewise, a potential customer will pass over a business if the Outside Perception is less than adequate. Aligning the Inside Reality with the Outside Perception is critical for market domination.

Summary Learning Goals:
