The Bigg Success Show Podcast Summary
Scott says, “Marketing isn’t a task, a department or an action item. It’s every single point of engagement you have with your marketplace.”
You are the brand. You are the ambassador. Your position doesn’t matter. He tells a great story about meeting Wes – a carpet cleaner at the Wynn in Las Vegas – who is the walking definition of how to engage properly.
Scott interviewed over 1,000 business owners and found that most businesses market to the lowest level of trust, where prices are the most sensitive and competition is the most cutthroat.
Customers only use the Yellow Pages or Google search when they don’t know who else to call. Stand out from your competition. Be at the front of your customers’ minds.
Start by asking your customers three simple questions:
1. What can we stop doing?
2. What could we start doing?
3. What would you like us to continue doing?
Are you getting feedback from your customers? Are you listening and responding to your marketplace? We’ll talk about that next time when we continue our conversation with Scott. (Click here to go to Part 2)
