Creating a successful marketing mindset is equally important to having the right marketing actions in your marketing plan.
For a small business, having a mind that can see things from a potential client’s point of view is invaluable. It gives you a number of significant benefits and means that:
- you can understand your client’s needs and wants
- you’ll be able to build rapport and establish good communication with your clients
- you can offer the sort of customer service that will please them
A good marketing mindset not only puts your customer at the centre of things, it is also able to develop the sales process so that it is made logical, consistent and repeatable.
What else helps with mindset?
You need to have confidence in both yourself and the service you offer. Many business owners underestimate the value of what they offer. The problem is that unless we ourselves know the true value of our services it can be very difficult to convey this to our potential clients.
There are many downsides to not knowing your value such as undercharging, less confidence in handling sales objections or asking for the sale and not knowing how to price your services.
How to Start?
Key aspects that help to create a successful marketing mindset include:
- Work out the value of your offers
- Understand how to convey that value and sell your services without being salesy
- Explore ways of overcoming sales objections
- Learn how to price your services
- Understand the concept of value pricing – and its implications for your business
- Discover how to charge what you are really worth and get it
As well as developing a successful marketing mindset, it is important you have all the practical marketing actions too.
