Now comes the tactical marketing… Once you’ve thought about what your selected group of customers wants, it’s time to give it to them. Make sure you’ve covered every scenario, and then set things in motion. Get those ads out, engage your audience, give them promotional goods… This part will also help you get a better understanding of what works and what doesn’t, which will prove to be precious knowledge later on.
To get the best results, try not to mix these two – if you’re wondering how to react to something during the tactical part, you probably didn’t plan well enough and could use a time machine to go back and regroup. I never let my clients commence a haphazard campaign, even if it means boring them to death with details – they’ll thank me later.
Attraction marketing – who’s being attracted?
Attraction marketing is simple in theory yet difficult to pull off in practice – things become even harder when the marketing is done online. Much of it rests on the individual a.k.a. the advertiser, and his or her ‘people skills’.
Basically, your clients or customers need to place their faith in you as a person. They need to think you know what you’re talking about and – equally as important – that you’re telling the truth. This is particularly effective because it creates a potential for long-term client relationships and returning customers when done right. When done wrong? Well, angry mobs aren’t as bad as they used to be…
To become an attraction marketer, you’ll need to give some thought about your customers’ desires. What do they really want, and how can I give it to them while also selling them my product? Blend those things, and you’re on your way to riches.
