Episode #347 – Who is the Star of the Story?

“Good Marketing makes the Company look Smart. Great Marketing makes the Customer feel Smart” JChernov

I love this inspiration!  Have you ever thought about marketing in this light?  Your job is to make the customer feel smart.

Let’s do a little “shoe on the other foot” example.  Have you ever been a customer and felt dumb?  The sales person was so concerned about showing you the features and benefits, they forgot their job was to make sure YOU understood how it would add value to your life.

Your job, at all times, is to build trust using the Infinity Marketing Machine.

When you feel dumb you also feel insecure.  It’s not a great feeling.  But a terrific sales person will make you the star of the story!  They’ll go out of their way to make you feel comfortable.  This builds trust.

Now you might think… this is pretty easy to do in the “real world” because you have all sorts of verbal ques.  You can read the person in front of you and understand if they are “getting it”.  So what do you do online?

Play the role of beginner customer!  Start a role play with yourself.  Pretend you are both the beginner customer and the sales person.  Ask yourself all the questions you’ve ever been asked… and answer them.  NOW, in the role of marketing… make a large FAQ page of all of these questions.  Then when needed (and even when not needed) make videos!  Use both of these great tools and make the customer feel smart!

I had a customer visit for a tour this past weekend.  I started to explain how our boat storage program works… he said, “OH I know… I watched your video” — AWESOME.
