One Selling Point You Should NOT Use in Your Marketing

When you're describing your product and how it helps your clients, there's one "selling point" that you should seldom or never use: "Why you should/shouldn't X". Seriously, this is a sale-killer.

Why is "why you should/shouldn't" such a bad phrase? I'm going to be a hypocrite for a minute here, and... Read More

A Harsh Truth Every Business Owner Needs to Understand

When I teach people how to describe their services, or when I write their materials for them, I often end up having to tell them a certain harsh truth: Unless they know you personally, your potential clients probably don't care about the things you care about.

Here are three things your clients don't care about as much as you might think. 1. Your... Read More

Avoid Losing Leads by Using the Scavenger Hunt Principle of Marketing

Are you giving your leads the best possible chance of becoming customers, or are you needlessly losing them somewhere along the way? The answer to that question partly depends on how well you use the "Scavenger Hunt" principle when creating your sales funnel. What is the Scavenger Hunt principle? As kids - or as adults - you may have played a game where one person made and hid a series of clues, and the others had to find them. Each clue led to the location of the next clue.

Will Other Businesses Still Promote You, Even if Your Products are Similar to Theirs?

A couple weeks ago, I recommended to one of my clients that she should seek out other businesses that serve the same audience as she does, and ask them if they'd be willing to tell their audience about her program.

If we both serve the same audience, won't they be worried that they'll lose customers by offering my program?" Today, I'd like to give you the same answers I gave her, plus some additional information that will help you to find... Read More
