Friends help each otherNick Bradbury’s Nashville-based company, Bradbury Software, has only one employee – himself. He doesn’t have time to help all of his clients and answer their questions. He solved this problem reasonably easy – he got his customers to help each other – for free! In “Need Help? Don’t Call Us” (Inc, August 2005), Etelka Lehoczky explains that Nick’s customers seem only too pleased to help.

There must be ways in which other companies could harness these characteristics amongst their own clients.
