Expert session snapshot
So, when we traditionally think about marketing you’re talking about marketing to people and you’re marketing to people and behavioral marketing is it’s for the people that’s that’s the real difference is about thinking about things from a person’s perspective not a visitor on your website the visitors on your website are real people and we and we forget that. When we look at our marketing automation system we look at these aggregate numbers we look at Google Analytics we forget that they’re real people so behavioral marketing is for the people and it’s not marketing to them.
It’s about thinking about their perspective and what makes sense and that’s and when you when you do things that are good for people then they happen to buy at higher rates or complete leads at higher rates or I want to use your service at higher rates and and we’ve got the business around that
I see entrepreneurs business owners do is they get started with the business and
this you want to be bigger than you are so even when you’re a few people you want to feel like you’re 20 people when you’re 20 people you want to feel like you’re a hundred people and then you’re like yeah. I’m hot sure right now with my chest out that’s how people’s websites and emails are it’s like oh we’re this big business and big businesses speak talk down to people and we speak like this but you kind of you kind of missed the whole human element the businesses that work the best we really do speak on a human level to people so like that that’s a big mistake is like people wanting their company to be much bigger than it is and then they’re marketing the marketing their websites reflect that and that it’s it’s not a good thing and you lose you don’t have a Europe you don’t have a personality your brand your brand doesn’t have its own voice.
It’s just like this like empty corporate shell like every other company that’s not taking off so that that’s something I want people to change like even if your mind like you think you’re a twenty person company or if you’re a hundred percent you think it’s three years person company and instead of like acting like a 300 person company you should act like a one-person company where you’re in a meeting one and one with somebody and if you were selling someone you’re your product or service that your website it should be like you’re having one-on-one conversation and actually that what I think it’s a really good practice is you should record yourself say you’re giving a sales fishery recumbent.
You ask me about behavioral marketing and we’re talking about it right now we’ve been probably been talking with three or four minutes if I transcribe these words in a website it’d be a pretty be a pretty long website and we haven’t even really gotten very deep so what I like people to do is get have record like a sales conversation it could be a lot one but really sell your product or service to somebody and record it and then transcribe and see how long that is and sometimes that’s a 20 minute conversation could be in our case.
We we’re an enterprise product so it could
