So here we are, marketing our business. We’re using a variety of methodologies and tactics in order to get our message out to our target audience. Right?
But so is everyone else.
Business Marketing Madness
Audiences are bombarded with thousands of marketing messages every day. Brands continue to find ever more creative means to get in front of us. But today’s innovative tactic is yesterday’s cliché, as we all end up doing the same thing.
What’s almost as bad, is that many brands are saying pretty much exactly the same thing. How great their service is. How personable their sales staff are. The high quality of their product or service. While the consumer has more of a choice than ever before, it seems that it’s just more of the same.
So with all this noise, how can a company make its voice heard? Well, certainly not by contributing to the noise, that’s for sure.
You can no longer get attention by shouting louder, like you could in the old days (i.e. anything more than about 3 years ago).
Today, you get attention by sounding different.
