Help people. Don’t be selfish. Create and share.
Effective modern marketing is not about forcing people to buy something they dont need. People are tired if companies trying to sell them the next gimmick. They are also better than ever at filtering out advertisements and sales pitches.
If you want to be successful this year this is what you need to do:
- Define a specific target market.
- Find out where their attention and time is spent online.
- Interact with them, get to know them.
- Find out what their problems and struggles are.
- Help them. Give advice. Support them.
- Don’t be selfish.
- It is about them and how you can help them.
- When they are ready to buy, they will remember who helped and supported them.

Tell a story. Share an experience. That is what modern marketing is all about.
Modern marketing is not about branding. Very few (very large) companies can afford to just raise brand awareness. Modern marketing is also not about being pushy and just trying to sell your product or service.
If you really want to build a long term relationship with a potential customer you have to share stories with them and help them. As the saying goes: People buy from people. Be a person. Be helpful. Share. Tell a story that people can relate to.
In todays business environment many businesses try to be (or end up being) faceless, professional and corporate. Be the exception, have a personal touch. Don’t be afraid to show behind the scenes glimpses of your company. Potential customers relate to these stories. Don’t be just another business competing for their attention. Be unique. Be yourself.
Marketing does not fix a business. It only amplifies a business. If you have something special, marketing will let more people know.
If there is a flaw in your business marketing will also amplify that. Marketing is not a silver bullet that will fix a business that has an inherent flaw.
What marketing will do: If you have a sound business and you can sell your product or service to someone in person. Marketing will help you find more of those people who might be interested in your product or service.
Make sure you have a good quality product / service at the right price and with great service. Then only expand on your marketing.
