Nobody likes being sold to. We've all experienced it haven't we. Where you get the feeling the only thing on their mind is to get the sale. They do all the talking and NO LISTENING. Telling you all about the product or service they're flogging. They don't take a second to consider what it is you're actually after. They break all the best-practice sales rules.
It isn't a great feeling is it?
The experiences we remember and respond to are the ones where people take the time to get to know you. They ask questions. They listen. It's evident they're genuinely interested in you. And instead of flogging something to you they suggest how they might be able to help you. They generally offer more than one solution because they've taken the time to gather as much information about you.
There are many words to describe the difference between the two experiences. One word that springs to mind for the memorable experience is authentic. What they've done is build something real, meaningful, genuine. Authentic.
Selling online is no different. Creating authentic content is key to building a more meaningful relationship with your customers. In this blog I'm going to cover the why and how of authentic content and show you some of the ways we do it.
