Advertising Small Business Wonderfulness

1966 was too early for me, but I remember listening to tapes of Bill in the late 70s and early 80s. Awesome humor. Unmatched.

Bill Cosby released a comedy album in 1966 called “Wonderfulness”. What a great title. Just the word itself makes you want to listen to it. But do YOU have wonderfulness?

Do people know all the WONDERFULNESS that your product or service can deliver?

What do you DO for people? Think about that question. Go deeper than the obvious, “surface” answers. Figure out what you really DO for your customers. Figure that out first.

Then, how do you tell them?  How do you advertise?

If you begin “shouting” at folks about what you sell, you WILL be ignored. You’ll be ignored because thousands of others like you are doing the exact same thing.  Your words have become mere background noise.  Static. Annoyances.

Advertising can drive sales. Advertising can double your sales this year. It CAN if you scrap your current, non-producing ad plan, and start fresh.

WHAT IF…

What if you talked to your prospect about what’s going on in THEIR life?  What if you talked to them about what is truly important to them?  Or about something they wish to fix.  About pain they want to be rid of?  About something that can make them feel happy.  Something that will better their lives.  ??

Because isn’t THAT what we all want?  To be happy – successful – respected – loved – content – admired – free of stress – financially secure – independent – healthy – attractive – comfortable – safe – secure –     etc., etc.

What people want…is to better themselves.  So, tell them how your product or service can aid them in their journey.  Will you continue to tell them in the same ways as most other businesses do?  Will you continue to say the same things?  Will you continue to hope and pray that a Facebook page is all you need?…that it’s the magic potion you’ve been waiting for?

Define your TRUE customer, find out what they REALLY care about.  What “moves” them? What WONDERFULNESS can you share with them?

Have a day full of wonder!
