12 Simple Marketing Tips

Every so often, we come across a business owner that insists on word-of-mouth advertising, exclusively.  We think every small business owner would prefer this free means of promotion – that is, if this way of marketing was good enough to retire on.  But, it’s not.  After a little questioning, we usually discover that these folks have once been burned by exploring some sort of expensive marketing endeavor.  It is quite easy to feel at home with not spending money on marketing when this has been your experience.

While you may ultimately be satisfied with any positive results, however, don’t fall into the trap of ignoring basic goals. Think of it like trying to navigate an unfamiliar city without a map: You may be happy with any neighborhood you stumble into, but you’ll never find the serious treats until you know where you’re going.  Read More



Selling The Solution, Not The Product

There is real value in solving a problem in the customer's mind. If you can do that, then there's no reason for them not to buy from you.
Think about the last time you bought something. What solution did the product or service provide? Would you have paid more for the same result? Take a good look at your products and services. List the benefits of each product or service first, then come back and list the problems you solve. Positioning is the technique of marketing and advertising your products or services in such a way that it groups your competition together and sets you apart as something better at the same time. It's a very powerful technique. So why do customers buy what they buy?  Read More

How the Internet is Like a Popularity Contest

The more people that vote for you, the more likely it is you'll make prom queen, or class president... heck, even chess club secretary. When content is really good, people want to link to it. That's how the "internet" knows your content is good - lots of people have linked to, or "voted for" it. Since Google only wants to return the best results to make their searchers happy, the more times people have voted (clicked your link) that your content is great, the more likely you'll show up in the top search results for that related search term or phrase.   Read More
