How the best Influence and Sell more.

There is a lot to learn from Direct To Consumer businesses – no physical shops – as the startups get going from zero revenue to hitting their first million in revenue requires brute strength of products, communications and execution. 

As a broad brush, they generally excel in one or more of the following pillars:

Differentiation – they have pitched their business to stand above the noise of their competitors, 

Attention – how to get a lot of it with ideal buyers,

Content creation and Engagement (marketing and social selling)

Conversion-optimised website, landing pages,

Products and services that exceed their competitors,

Your buyers want to hear a bigger story than your products and services – we call it a strategic narrative, others, might call it storytelling. 

If you can position your business to ride a movement of change already occurring for your ideal buyers – helping them make sense of the changes – the benefits are significant with reduced marketing costs and better onboarding of new buyers. 

Great content is the accelerator for many businesses. The problem is most find content creation difficult. 

The Marketing Funnel – is wrong. 

Marketers talk of content as a means of pouring more people into the top of the sales funnel, a percentage of people fall off at the mid point of the funnel a small percentage buy. 

Long-term global research demonstrates this is not how people buy – the theoretical construct is wrong. 

The sales funnel is reversed: people move through a series of micro-yesses – at each step – the right content educates, and they make decisions to move on to the next decision point or not. Each yes takes them further up the ladder – further up the funnel until the ultimate yes – they buy. 

The starting point is answering in your ideal buyer’s mind – why should I only buy from your business rather than any of your competitors? 

The answer to this is in the middle of the first page of your website. Critical real estate – getting this wrong is very costly – impacts revenue 3x.
