Dear Thinette

It is a way to tell the world about your interest and passion in a blog post, how it can help them and enhance their lives.

Creating a website with stunning content and sharing with the world is one way of doing it. Marketing is bringing your website and its content into their own home.

Normally the focus is on the 4 P’s is the Product, the Price, the Place and the Promotion. It is mostly done from a selfish perspective. How much money am I going to make. The customer will soon realize it, and shy away from a marketer with that attitude.

 

So what is Customer-driven marketing and how is it different?

Customer-driven marketing, it is an opportunity to enhance the life of your customer, and not think of your pocket first. With honest emotional strategies, you can build powerful honest relationships, and will reap benefits from it for many years to come.Direction-signal-of-marketing-strategy-street-sign-

 

Who is your customer?

People who know and use the product, will come back time after time. Customers who need the product will be thankful for your help. People searching for the product will land on your website and stay. Give a customer recognition and good friendly serves. Your duty is to create value for them, and your pockets will stay full.

 

Five Types of Customers

  1. Price buyers. The Bargain hunters, always on the lookout for Sales.Sale-sign-with-2-bags-full-discount-
  2. Value buyers. Buyers who want quality products, value for money
  3. Impulsive buyers. Browsers who buy on the spur of the moment.
  4. The Virgin buyers. These are the first time buyers, new to the scene.
  5. Your Loyal buyers. Old customers who need the product and will come back. All of these customers have their own angle to the product. When writing, you have to make sure to accommodate them all. Building trust to have a loyal long term customer relationship is the ideal. Keep your customer happy and satisfied with what they bought. It is all about your customers serves and their needs.

A customer who has a personal, meaningful experience of value, will repeatedly come back. The aim should be to rely heavily to maximize a strong customer relationship.

Never think you have a customer in your bag. Always renew their trust with new relevant information.

Email marketing is an easy way. Have a strategy to grab their attention with continued email information and promotions.

Emotions play a huge role in marketing. Every decision made in life, is done with emotion. Use the positive aspect of your product to promote and create a happy feeling.

Tug at the heartstrings of sadness of your customers. This sounds like a contradiction and it is, but only to get sympathy and evoke a caring emotion. Create a vacuum and a need, and then have a solution to fill that need.

Fear creates urgency. From a mosquito, a spider or global warming and now the virus, all create urgency to find a solution. Fear motivates people to take action.

Make use of a little story to illustrate the importance of the product. Everybody loves a story they can associate with.

Use customers’ success stories to promote a product. Everybody likes to read about someone being success.

Emotional marketing taps into the desires and dreams of your customer. It allows you to connect with them on a deeper level they can relate to. It builds trust.Two-hands-through-a-PC-screen-making-a-sale-one-with-a-packet-and-one-with-a-credit-card-ecommerce
