Creating Desire For Your Solution

Posted by:

In a perfect world, simply having a great solution to a problem would be enough. And for some businesses that’s all they need to promote. But, if you’re in a competitive niche, or marketing services to highly affluent prospects you need to do more.

Unfortunately, most marketing messages only communicate “this is what I got and this is what it will do for you.” Don’t misunderstand-that’s important and you do need to have that as a part of your message.

But, if ...

Developing Judgement & Overcoming Fear of Marketing
