Get Your Marketing Power On

How do you create a successful and dominant business?

It’s a stepwise, intuitive process that always works when done well:

  • Establish your relevance, credibility, and value for a specific, potential customer base that wants what you supply.

  • Make compelling, magnetic offers to prospects who show interest.

  • Give customers exactly what they want plus more.

Make the process engaging and active. Attract Attention, create Interest, spark Desire, trigger Action. This same, proven “AIDA” marketing formula has built every successful business since media began to publish ads. Consider the process carefully and you’ll see that all four steps are the essence of marketing.

In fact, this same approach has become modern marketing in new forms. Google, Amazon, and Apple followed this path on their way to market dominance. Also, many old-school brands that are still doing very well got this approach right from the start. They follow this same model as customized for them and their customers. In fact, the AIDA model was derived from achieved success histories. So there really are no secrets to successful marketing. Just know what works and do it well, that is the message.

Do you have a marketing plan to drive earnings that achieve your goals?

Producing or revising a written plan could be a great, new beginning. Your plan will be your specific application of the above principles. You can take advantage of my help because I build custom marketing plans, including your own, specific, written process that’s tailored for your business, scaled to your budget, matched to your market, and upgradable as your business grows and market conditions change. A solid plan creates great clarity about your way forward.

You can achieve a highly professional image with online content.

Beyond planning and even before, after, or without any written plan, I can still create comprehensive, branded marketing materials for your business — like advertisements, directory listings, brochures, online postings, or company profiles. Also published articles, stories, blogging and other magnetic, traffic-attracting content — even full shopping websites including ecommerce checkout, made with Squarespace.

I’ve used several website-builder applications. Squarespace is powerful and it doesn’t need custom software coding except in specialized situations. If you like, you can learn to maintain a gorgeous, custom website all on your own. I built and wrote his website you are reading right now in Squarespace.

A magnetic image starts from basic branding and collateral.

By beginning with a review of your marketing basics, we can maximize the total impact of your plan. It starts with essential collateral — your branding, business card, stationery, capabilities brochure, and a website. If you’re a solo creative or a services specialist, it can be your professional portfolio website. For online retail sales, you can go with e-commerce. There is an approach for every need.

Attract attention with relevant, credible, and valuable content.

Consider blogging, well-placed feature articles, opinion pieces, and essays. For some situations, add specifications, analysis, research reports, case studies, commentary and other online documents. Such information materials create a positive impression and build your image. We can discover the relevant questions that customers often ask search engines about what you offer. Then you can educate and motivate potential customers about your products or services while answering customers’ inbound questions. Once established as a solution provider, you’re perfectly positioned to make offers to solution seekers.

Build a brand customers love.

If you’re already basically established, we can use your present business name, logo, tag lines, website and existing collateral. But your branding and marketing should be reviewed from time to time. They are the foundation for your business outreach success.

Web Content Writing and Blogging

Skilled in SEO copywriting, I’ve been a digital native and writer since before the Internet began. While a mechanical design engineer, I helped design supercomputer servers that support business and science, host the Internet around the world, and help propel business and science toward AI sentience. Eventually, I returned to my roots as a writer for individuals, businesses and nonprofits so that I can keep on publishing my own books and stories about real life even in a market saturated with genre-themed entertainment.
