At least 90% of marketing efforts by small business owners are completely wasted. The marketing pieces lack the hot buttons and attention grabbers to have any impact on the target market. And often the small business owner has not properly defined a target market and therefore does not know the hot buttons to begin with.
It is really quite simple … make your business unique, create an extraordinary offering and communicate effectively. And to communicate effectively the secret is to use the marketing conversion equation. Finding your core audience and getting their attention is simply following a proven set of principles. That formula is Interrupt, engage, educate and offer.
You MUST be able to enter the conversation taking place in the head of your prospects. Or another way to look at it is to be able address the number one question on your prospects mind at just the right time. The conversation taking place in EVERY prospect’s mind revolves around two major points … There’s a problem they have and they don’t want … There’s a result they want but don’t have.
Interrupt is your headline and is the problem they have and not want. Their hot button issues.
Engage is your sub headline and is the solution you provide that they are looking for.
Education is the information you provide either verbally or in writing that presents evidence to your prospect that you and your product or service are superior in every way to your competition.
The Offer MUST be so compelling and so irresistible your prospects can’t turn it down.
This messaging must be in every piece of marketing material you use and targeted at the niche part of your larger market opportunity. Utilized properly you will have more leads than you can possible address and can often get these leads while you sleep. It really is a simple equation that will turn advertising dollars into revenue.
