How to Create a Marketing Plan That Works (Part 1)

The marketing blueprint is really about getting inside your customer’s mind to understand how they think. When you can understand how someone thinks, you can speak to them in a way that is going to make a connection. That’s what marketing is all about.
Too often companies make the mistake of marketing in a way that resonates with their own thinking—not the customer’s.
When we do that, we are essentially pushing information out and forcing it upon people. It’s more of a ‘list to me, listen to me’ approach.
To give you another way of thinking about it: It’s like having a conversation with someone who is engaged with what you are saying, versus one who is too busy thinking about what they’ll say next and miss everything you’re saying.
In these two scenarios, there is a difference in the point of focus. The goal of the Marketing Blueprint is to be a listener before you become a speaker.
Does this take some effort? You bet. Is it worth it? You bet.
Not only does answering the Marketing Blueprint questions help you to connect with your customer, but it also helps you get really clear on who your customer actually is (believe me, it’s not as many people as you think). It helps you to be clear on why they will buy from you and on the true value you bring.
Answering these questions not only makes marketing easier, but they will guide your overall business strategy as well. It’s powerful stuff.
Do yourself and your business a favour, watch the video then set aside half a day with your key people to discuss the questions posed. The half-day you invest will save you a lot more than that down the track.
