Creating Your Compelling Marketing Message

Your marketing message is what you say about what you do in your business. It is essential not only because it gives people information about who you are and what you do, but also because this is what makes you unique and memorable. This is the first part of your brand development.

Many entrepreneurs, especially coaches, struggle quite a bit with their messages. When asked what do they do, they start with their title, such as business coach, or marketing coach, or relationship coach or fill in the blank coach. Although titles are clear and easy for people to digest, they are not very compelling and they tend to put you in the box with all the other marketing coaches you have to compete with.

Another question I hear a lot is, what should a good compelling marketing message be about? Is it about you as a business owner or is it about people you serve? The answer is both. If you make it too much about you, you will lose people because they won’t feel like you care enough about them or their needs. On the other hand, if you make it too much about them and forget to include you, then you will lose yourself and your potential clients won’t see you as an expert who can help them.

Personalized Business Gifts for Any Occasion

When it comes to sending presents to professional associates or colleagues, personalized business gifts are a smart choice. Today it is very easy to find these items as they are widely sold online, as well as in local department and specialty stores. There is a huge array of items that can be customized with a client’s monogram or your own company logo.

Giving personalized corporate gifts is a great way to make a positive impression with clients both current and prospective, as well as impressing professional colleagues. These gifts work because they demonstrate that you have made an effort to find a special gift, as opposed to simply grabbing something off a retail shelf. These presents are created with the receiver in mind, which can go a long way in creating a firm professional relationship.

High-quality gifts such as monogrammed cufflinks tend to be excellent choices. While the recipient may seem to “have it all,” everyone likes something that was made just for them. However, the item does not have to be expensive: after all, the thought counts, not the fiscal value of the item. This is what makes customized gifts such a great choice: even a relatively inexpensive item can gain special value when it is personalized.
