It's '15 Minutes To Action' time, and this week, Nick talks about the importance of perspective when it comes to your marketing strategy, and how to activate the marketing mechanism that will serve your customers in the ideal way.
- When planning our marketing tactics and strategies, you need to take a wide view of the business itself - to gain a far broader perspective about who you are and where you are.
- The whole reason that your business exists - its purpose for being - is that you're solving a problem for someone. You are taking someone from their current state to their desired state.
- The marketing mechanism is the vehicle by which you take your customer or client from their current state, to the state in which they desire to be.
- The "unspoken mechanism" is when there is nothing unique about your product or service, but no one is talking about it.
'You've got to be able to see the landscape so that you can make better decisions'
'Your solution between those two dimensions is what's going to make the difference between you being successful or not'
'The marketing mechanism is what creates the differentiation for your business'
'What is your special sauce?'
