  • The Marketing Equation…
      • Interrupt
      • Engage
      • + Educate
      • Offer
      • = RESULTS!
  • 1. Interrupt
    • The act of taking the viewer’s or listener’s brain from Auto to Attentive activity.
    Auto Attentive Activator : a Familiar, Conflicting or Emotional trigger Our ongoing “ auto-pilot ” state of mind. Our attentive “ I am tuned-in ” state of mind .
  • 2. Engage
    • Once Interrupted , the customer is giving you the opportunity to tell them why your message is important and relevant to them.
    Be quick and effective… The “Engage” opportunity is Like this beach ball - when first engaged, the attention span is popped into the air, slows and begins a decent back to “Auto” !
  • 3. Educate
    • Once Engaged , this is your opportunity to identify the important purchase issues and how YOU can best address them.
    Take the customer to school… To make it to this stage, the customer has indicated an interest and a possible relevance in your message. Build your case confidently!
  • 4. Offer
    • Once Educated , here is your opportunity to make a low-risk, common-sense Offer for the customer to take the next step toward
    • a purchase.
    Make the next step easy… Offer a contact number/e-mail “for even more free expert information” to facilitate the buying decision.
  • The Marketing Equation…
    • Typical print ad #1: designed for a newspaper, directory, handout or insert (or radio script).
  • The Equation IN action…

    • Awareness
    Equation Process Results 
  • Which result is for YOU ?
    • Advertising:
    • Interrupt + Repetition
    • = Top-of-Mind Awareness
    • __ “Great spot, but WHO was it for again?”
    • __ “Awareness” makes you part of the herd.
    • __ “Awareness” does not necessarily mean sales.
    • Marketing:
    • Interrupt + Engage + Educate + Offer = Sales & Profits
    • __ Uses creative activators to Interrupt, but also…
    • __ Uses relevency to Engage and Educate a targeted customer.
    • __ Invites the prospect to buy or shows the next step.
  • … AND Sales is NOT Marketing!
  • ALSO know that Marketing drives Sales …not vice-versa!
    • As with Advertising , it is critical to understand Successful SALES is a result of a solid STRATEGY and MARKETING plan.
    • Are YOU Selling without a STRATEGY ?
    • A wise man once said, “If you don’t know where you’re going,
    • then any road will get you there.”
  • Getting from “ AND?” to “AhHa!”
  • Taking your marketing/ad style from “And?” to “ AhHa! ”
    • Read your own ad copy . Is it full of obvious statements that most of your competitors could say as well?
    • Examples: “Quality Service!” “Dependable Staff!” “Satisfaction Guaranteed!” … and any other blinding flashes of the obvious that leave your customer saying, “And?” Identify and eliminate!
  • The Equation vs. “ And? ”…
    • Typical print ad #1: designed for a newspaper, directory, handout or insert (or radio script).
  • “ Me, me, me ” is “wrong, wrong, wrong”! Read your own ad copy . Is it full of YOU talking about YOU , versus what the customer has to gain through buying your product or service? Examples : “We have 24,000 sq ft of warehouse space!” “We have been in business for 20 years!” Identify and eliminate!
  • The Equation vs. “Me…”
    • Typical print ad #2: designed for a newspaper, directory, handout or insert (or radio script).
  • Instead, DEFINE what sets you apart from the rest …. … and consistently promote YOUR Unique Value Proposition ! If you can’t uncover a UVP, C REATE one – you’re one of the herd without it. And Promote! Promote! Promote!
  • The Equation IN action…
    • Interrupt
    • ✔ Engage
    • Educate
    •  Offer
  • The Equation IN action…
    • Interrupt
    • ✔ Engage
    • Educate
    • ✔ Offer
  • “… don’t shoot the messenger!”
    • Always remember that it’s the media outlet’s job to DELIVER your tactical message , NOT to create your Marketing Strategy .
    • Understand that most media outlets are the marketing equivalent of USPS, FedEx, UPS, etc. Their skill sets are centered in delivery , NOT Strategy !
  • A quick recap…
    • Advertising and Sales is NOT Marketing!
    • Strategy results in Tactics; not vice-versa. Tactics result in sales.
    • The “Marketing Equation”
    • Interrupt + Engage + Educate + Offer = Results
    • Take your message from “And?” to “AhHa!”
    • Eliminate the “obvious” and “me, me, me”
    • Identify or create your Unique Value Proposition
    • Don’t shoot the messenger…develop YOUR strategy
    • Strategy is YOUR responsibility – not the outlet’s
  • Knoxville, Tennessee London, Kentucky Wishing you success in all you do!
