For a business owner, anything that annoys a customer is an opportunity.
In order to get the prospective customer to move, you have to provide strong emotional appeals that touch his or her heart and life, backed up with reasons to believe your message.
When a steady stream of customers seek out a business to solve their problems, the power shifts to the business to dictate price and the terms of the transaction.
Customers will either get bored with our business or forget our business unless they hear from us often about new products and services and new offers.
When we are in pain, we want it stopped NOW!
We never want to position ourselves as salespersons. Instead, be an advisor or consultant who is helping to solve a problem. An assistant buyer.
The most important thing needed for an effective marketing campaign is finding prospective customers who are interested in what you have to offer.
Tying a promotion into a holiday can be an effective way to get a customer's attention. Holidays can also provide a "reason why" for a promotion.
When an advertisement or a promotion doesn't work as planned, you just got some important information -- what didn't work.
