1. Audience: Who are the people in the group that you’re going to be speaking to, that you’re actually going to help? There are usually 2 or 3.
2. Ask: What are the questions these people are asking?
3. Audit: Review your content marketing to find those questions and answers to them in your marketing Are there gaps between what they need to know at stage 1 and stage 4?
4. Answer: Create marketing that answers those top questions that are missing
- Create long-term currency. Instead of focusing on “how can I get the next sale?” consider, “How can I create a great experience for this customer so they want to stay with me for longer and let their friends know about me too?”
- Make sure that you highlight that unique selling position in your copy. And copy can be used to kind of give a different perspective of something but you’re still talking about the same thing, right? Your unique selling proposition, unique selling position, USP
- When looking for a copywriter, ask them about their process? Do they have a process, ask them about how they’re going to communicate with you?
- Always be testing, always be testing, always be testing. And if everything’s working properly, you’re not testing enough.
