How To Quickly Hack Your Marketing And Get Results
Social media is a great place to see good marketing. YouTube is another good place. If you’ve ever found yourself looking something up on YouTube, and before you know it, you’re clicking on the ad from the video… pay attention to that ad. Ask yourself these questions:1) What was it about this ad that grabbed your attention? 2) What did the headline say that stopped me in my tracks? 3) What was the process that I went through after I clicked on the ad? This can happen off of social media as well. Start keeping a file of other people’s marketing. This is called a swipe file. The goal with a swipe file is NOT TO COPY other people’s marketing. The goal is to MODEL it for your own business. This means you’re not taking their words, and you’re modeling the idea and using your images, words, metaphors, and concepts. Think of your swipe file like your own idea files. Now, go out there and start modeling good marketing. Start getting people into your world who want to learn more about your products and services. Then start reaching out and connecting with them. If you’d like more help with your marketing, I’d highly recommend becoming part of our Fearless Networker Insider program.
