Let’s talk engagement. What good is marketing, offering you the “best quality” product, if it can’t solve your problems or meet your needs?
Good Day to You,
Doing product research isn’t good enough. I can’t solve your problems or serve your needs without asking questions. Not by relying on “tech”, or having hundreds of conversations on social media (ok to a point), but personally asking you these questions. No “lists” or “gimmicks” just us talking and helping each other.
If you’re thinking there’s a “method to my madness”, your right!
The concept for this project was conceived before I read this article, but the post helps to confirm that “Helping First – Selling Later” can really work. Reading this will help you understand what may seem like my “backwards approach” to marketing:
At the end of this “post of questions” you will find a Contact Form. I invite you to use the form to start a private email conversation with me. This is not traditional “list building”. I’m not using automation to send you “canned” or prewritten messages.
You are welcome to leave a “public” comment as well.
I plan to renew this post every now and then. Some questions may change to reflect the changes that take place over time. The intent will remain the same:
To learn from you, how I can help, by researching appropriate products and services, then presenting you with my results. Results that really matter to you.
No “Beating around the Bush”
Being able to “help first” requires that I understand what your needs are, so that finding that help can be researched.
If I can “earn a buck” in the process, great! My eventual goal is to earn money. Yes, that absolutely involves selling products and services. We both know that.
I don’t want to just offer products based on “popularity” or “Return (refund) Rate”. Nor do I want to start looking for a “new” audience, when we are already starting to connect. What a merry go round!
That’s why I started this conversation talking about TRUST.
Here are a few questions:
Do you feel comfortable connecting with me?
Do you feel my content is consistent?
Have I helped or encouraged you?
What problem would you like me to solve?
Can I help you reach a goal?
How do you feel about being asked these questions?
Do these questions help you relax with me?
Do you believe I’m sincere? (Be honest)
Do you want to ask me a question?
Product Offer Suggestions:
What products would you like me to research?
Do you see me offering a particular category of product or service?
What products or services are you interested in?
What kind of PDF would you like me to write?
Can you visualize me in the roll of selling something?
Does this concept make sense to you?
Are you a marketer with a product or service (not a “program) that you think would be a good fit here?
Do you see this as the right direction for me, or do you picture me using my skills in a different way?
I sincerely hope we can connect, understand each other. Then solve problems and reach goals together.
Remember, I really mean it:
Helping First – Selling Later
My Best to You
