Many business owners struggle with copy - and invariably those asking for assistance, will have forgotten the three golden rules of writing great marketing that works.
So, to help you connect more easily and more powerfully with your audience, here are what I believe to be the three most important rules when it comes to marketing your business:
Rule One - Personality
Don't be afraid to let your personality shine through. This is such a common mistake. People think they have to sound all ‘professional’ and ‘corporate’ in their email communications. WRONG! Write like you normally talk, spill the beans on who you really are. That's the key to making your recipient want to keep reading what you send.
Rule Two - Care
Care about what you say and say it with passion. When all is said and done, they’ll remember you truly cared. Speak from the heart about how much what you have to say matters in making their lives better.
Rule Three - Learn
Never stop learning. This is so important. You can't ever sit back and say, ‘great, now I've got that figured out!’. To stay at the top of their game, successful business owners push themselves to see, do, experience, and learn new things. It's not an option - it's mission-critical!
In the meantime, let your personality come to the fore and your passion flourish!
