Don’t Talk to Me That Way

Lynndell Epp - Wednesday, October 30, 2013


Marketers and business owners who communicate the same marketing message and image to every type of prospect are making a critical mistake. If you're doing lead generation this way, you're likely turning off many would-be clients.

The marketing message that appeals to a small business owner may be much different from what works for a twenty-something consumer. Yet, many companies have clients in both categories among many others. To address this broad range of people, clients often tell me that they develop a one-size-fits-all message that won’t exclude anyone.

But, this actually excludes many prospects who don’t feel their specific needs are being addressed. The solution is to make your marketing speak to each segment in a unique way.

To do this, first list out and build a detailed portrait of each prospect type. To make sure you’re including everyone, look at your existing client types (and add any that you want to start prospecting).

For each group, ask such questions as: What are their biggest frustrations, concerns, needs and interests? Where can you reach these people on blogs, social media, at home, in their car, at their desk, etc.? Include items like Age, Job Title, Industry, Personal Information, Gender and anything else that helps you identify prospects’ situations and buying preferences.

With this information, you can develop an "ideal client profile." for each prospect type.

The Ideal Client Profile

Just for fun, let's make up a profile. Let's say you have an insurance agency. When looking through your customer list, you find your best customers are fathers with a corporate job, three cars and kids about ready to go to college. You also find single males in their twenties who have a few speeding tickets and rent an apartment.

Apply a name and a face to these people so you can start crafting a meaningful message to them. You might name them "Dan the Dad" and "Twenty-Something Jared."

Let me ask you some questions here:

  1. Would you send out the same marketing piece to these individuals and expect it to be equally effective for both?
  2. Would you water down your marketing to come across as relevant to both prospects?
  3. Do you think that different messages, images and offers would be more effective in gaining more leads from each group?

Hopefully, you see that these are rhetorical questions. Of course you would want to craft a message that speaks as directly as possible to each prospect!

Start developing your marketing message, offers, calls to action and tactical approaches to reach and convert your profiles. When you focus on your prospects and clients' needs, wants and concerns, your message will resonate with greater force.

Learn 20 Steps to Your Marketing Success in 2013

Lynndell Epp - Wednesday, December 12, 2012

 

20 Steps to Marketing Success 

 

It's time for you to take your marketing to the next level. It's time to stop doing "ad hoc" marketing activities that miss more than hit. If you're like most business people who struggle to get effective marketing in place and working consistently month after month, then this article is for you.

Just recently we have put a system outline in place that can help you visualize what your marketing needs to include in order to be successful. I'm going to go through a bunch of them here. If you want the rest, just send me an email to Lynndell@mailmasters.net and I'll send the entire packet out to you.

  

The 20-Step Sales Funnel

Step 1: Create a powerful, unique marketing message (a compelling story) that separates you from your competition. This statement/offer needs to be a clear and concise reason to call you versus anyone else.

Step 2: Create your list of prospects. Starting with your existing database of past/current clients & S.O.I. - then branching out to three target audiences. We want to hit a total of 4 different sources with your offer/message/story.

Step 3: Create a 6-part video series that explains your story, marketing message, system, approach, methodology to solving the prospects main problems / challenges / misconceptions / mistakes when purchasing your product/service. Each video should be outlined/scripted, 1-2 minutes in length and cover 1 topic.

Step 4: Create a Recorded Interview CD with the same content as the 6-part video series. This audio should be 20-30 minutes in length.

Step 5: Create a "Free Report" by getting the CD transcribed. The length of this document should be 4-6 pages and can be used as a download / handout.

Step 6: Create a "Landing-Page" website that can offer the 6-part video series, CD & "Free Report" to interested prospects.

Step 7: Create a 1-page sales letter for the free information offer.

Step 8: Create a full-color brochure for the free information offer.

Step 9: Create 2 multi-use postcards for the free information offer.

Step 10: Create 4 emails for the free information offer.

If you want the rest of the list, just send me an email & I'll get it right out to you.

The most important words in Marketing are "Thank You"

Lynndell Epp - Thursday, November 15, 2012

Everyone gets busy and distracted during the holiday rush. Don't be one of those small businesses who forgets to be grateful for their most important asset: their customers. The opposite of thanking your customers is being rude and ignoring your most valuable business customers.

When done correctly, good marketing and business relationships create that holy grail of business, the "multiplier effect". Remember that old shampoo commercial on tv, probably the predecessor to social media, that boasted their happy customers "tell 2 friends, who tell 2 friends" and so on?


Make your holiday cards stand out and take them to the next level by rewarding your best customers. Include a free gift or service give away that you can afford that will incent your customers to reward you with their loyalty and also, "they'll tell 2 friends...". 

Mail Masters' affordable card packages allow you to the flexibility to have a custom design with enough left over to include something extra. 

Call us today at 303-607-9424 to get started, orders are due by December 6!
