The easiest thing in the world is to get excited for something that affects you positively. For instance, this year you may have been excited to celebrate your birthday, perhaps more than anyone else, because while others have fun making sure you have a good time, they also look forward to their own birthday perhaps more than yours. This is natural, and it’s why we generally like to have ownership of that which benefits us.
There’s nothing wrong in this. But we can suffer from a lack of foresight when we assume that everyone has to feel the same way we do, simply because we do. When trying to generate a business idea, and ultimately forming that brand, it’s easy to fall into this thinking. But should a business audience care about what you have to offer? No matter how innovative and interesting your concept is, it’s essential to ask this question. If you can do that, you’d be amazed at how much more capable your marketing becomes.
So, let’s consider relaying excitement and interest as a marketing technique. Without further ado, let’s begin:
Core Components Of Worth
When you’re excited about a topic, it’s very easy to discuss it at great length. This is because you have fallen in love with every aspect of its design, intention, or craftsmanship. If someone doesn’t quite share that passion yet, the energy you give off can be enjoyable, but a little much. So – distil your marketing message to the core components that really matter. Ensure they can be understood properly by asking – if I had to explain my service or product in one or two simple points, how would I do it?
Calibrate The Language
Of course, it’s not just about how you curate the positive aspects of your offered value, but the language you use to showcase it. Think of snappy, imperative language. Try to avoid the basic marketing mambo-jumbo such as the buzzwords we all know of. Think of the iPod’s first launch and how copywriters penned the phrase “A thousand songs in your pocket.” It was short, snappy, precise, and relayed everything you needed to know. Could your own brand present itself in this way? Might this, as above, distil the core value of what you have to offer? Don’t be afraid to use a service like Red Spot Design to pinpoint that more effectively.
Providing context to your marketing claims will help you showcase, cleanly, why you’re so excited about them. For example, it might be that you are the first woman-led business developing and delivering this particular engineering service. Perhaps you are rectifying an older method, such as a local barbers that uses wet shaves with straight razors, wearing waistcoats and offering tea. You likely have some unique value, even if it’s not as theatrical as that latter example, so don’t be afraid to provide the groundwork of context to help others compare that to the competition in advance. It can truly help you thrive.
With this advice, you’re sure to relay your excitement to your potential business audience in the best way.
