Yesterday I sent out a tweet that hit a nerve. It was about the stuff that bores people when you market.
Check out some of the reactions generated on Twitter. The responses could have you re-thinking your writing style.
The Tweet That Started Everything
You can retweet it:
Is it a Texbook or a Person?
Here’s what @WSriTejaReddy shot back and my reply:
This Turns Clients and Customers Off
Also jumping in on the twitter debate with me @KellyMcCormick_ was @KendraLeeKLA. It was another insightful conversation, in my humble opinion.
First Impressions are Made on The Internet
The internet is now your business card. Every place you show up on the web leaves an impression with potential customers.
By the time someone is ready to contact you they already have a sense of who you are and what you can do for them.
The question to ask is, “What kind of first impression are we making?”
Write as If You’re Having a Conversation
The tone you take when writing everything from your social media profiles, to your blogs, website content and marketing materials, will either attract or repel people. In under EIGHT seconds.
So before you sit down, to write anything, think about who will be reading it. Then write as if you’re speaking directly to that person.
This way people, potential clients and buyers, will feel like they know you. This moves them one step closer to reaching out.

As simple as these solutions sound, being real and writing to one person, it can be tricky to do.
The number one problem that I’ve seen, over and over again, is being able to fully understanding your ideal customer.

I’m not saying this to scare you. I am just getting real.
