    10. 10. 2. Engage <ul><li>Once Interrupted , the customer is giving you the opportunity to tell them why your message is important and relevant to them. </li></ul>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” !
    11. 11. 3. Educate <ul><li>Once Engaged , this is your opportunity to identify the important purchase issues and how YOU can best address them. </li></ul>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!
    12. 12. 4. Offer <ul><li>Once Educated , here is your opportunity to make a low-risk, common-sense Offer for the customer to take the next step toward </li></ul><ul><li>a purchase. </li></ul>Make the next step easy… Offer a contact number/e-mail “for even more free expert information” to facilitate the buying decision.

    19. 19. … AND Sales is NOT Marketing!
    20. 20. ALSO know that Marketing drives Sales …not vice-versa! <ul><li>As with Advertising , it is critical to understand Successful SALES is a result of a solid STRATEGY and MARKETING plan. </li></ul><ul><li>Are YOU Selling without a STRATEGY ? </li></ul><ul><li>A wise man once said, “If you don’t know where you’re going, </li></ul><ul><li>then any road will get you there.” </li></ul>
    21. 21. Getting from “ AND?” to “AhHa!”
    22. 22. Taking your marketing/ad style from “And?” to “ AhHa! ” <ul><li>Read your own ad copy . Is it full of obvious statements that most of your competitors could say as well? </li></ul><ul><li>Examples: “Quality Service!” “Dependable Staff!” “Satisfaction Guaranteed!” … and any other blinding flashes of the obvious that leave your customer saying, “And?” Identify and eliminate! </li></ul>
    23. 23. The Equation vs. “ And? ”… <ul><li>Typical print ad #1: designed for a newspaper, directory, handout or insert (or radio script). </li></ul>
    24. 24. “ 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!
    25. 25. The Equation vs. “Me…” <ul><li>Typical print ad #2: designed for a newspaper, directory, handout or insert (or radio script). </li></ul>
    26. 26. 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!
    27. 27. The Equation IN action… <ul><li>Interrupt </li></ul><ul><li>✔ Engage </li></ul><ul><li>Educate </li></ul><ul><li> Offer </li></ul>
    28. 28. The Equation IN action… <ul><li>Interrupt </li></ul><ul><li>✔ Engage </li></ul><ul><li>Educate </li></ul><ul><li>✔ Offer </li></ul>
    29. 29. “… don’t shoot the messenger!” <ul><li>Always remember that it’s the media outlet’s job to DELIVER your tactical message , NOT to create your Marketing Strategy . </li></ul><ul><li>Understand that most media outlets are the marketing equivalent of USPS, FedEx, UPS, etc. Their skill sets are centered in delivery , NOT Strategy ! </li></ul>
    30. 30. A quick recap… <ul><li>Advertising and Sales is NOT Marketing! </li></ul><ul><li>Strategy results in Tactics; not vice-versa. Tactics result in sales. </li></ul><ul><li>The “Marketing Equation” </li></ul><ul><li>Interrupt + Engage + Educate + Offer = Results </li></ul><ul><li>Take your message from “And?” to “AhHa!” </li></ul><ul><li> Eliminate the “obvious” and “me, me, me” </li></ul><ul><li> Identify or create your Unique Value Proposition </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t shoot the messenger…develop YOUR strategy </li></ul><ul><li> Strategy is YOUR responsibility – not the outlet’s </li></ul>
