Several of the above companies are executing strong "inside-out" customer advocacy programs. For example, the profitable growth of Harley-Davidson has been largely based on the company's lifestyle appeal through Harley Owners Group (H.O.G.) clubs. New owners get their first year of membership for free, and half of the members attend Harley-Davidson events and rallies at least once per year. Another company on the list, Commerce Bank, has worked hard to build a customer-centric culture, and has developed programs (i.e. the WOW Zone) aimed at building family-based relationships.
