18 Authorities on content marketing for business

Reboot Authentic is all about helping you get online, create your own market space, and sell smarter.

In a business climate in which so many have chosen to sell the same types of products and service to the same people in the same old conventional ways, it is becoming increasingly difficult to be noticed – online or offline. At the very least, you need to have a clear understanding of what makes you and your business unique, know your market intimately, and know how to sell to customers in a way that is meaningful to them.

11 Welcome To Reboot Authentic!

The underlying message of Reboot Authentic begins with one simple belief: YOU are a business.

Whether you work for someone else, run your own business, are a solo entrepreneur, or are a salesperson who earns only when you sell – YOU are a business.

The way customers buy is undergoing a massive shift – as is the way customers want to be treated by those who aspire to call them clients. Small, people-centered companies are thriving because of their high level of engagement and the big boys (at least the smart ones) are trying their best to seem smaller and more personal to accommodate the shift.

Selling the same types of products and services to the same people in the same ways won’t get you to where you want to be. You need to purposefully define your market, choose your company wisely, and sell to people in a way that resonates with them. If you’ve had difficulty gaining traction in whatever field you’re in, Reboot Authentic can help.

In yesterday’s post I promised you a simple yet effective tool to help you overcome that initial, “I don’t trust you” reflex of your prospects.

A Lousy Southwest Flight That Left Me LUVing Them Anyway

They exude excellence…except for this last Tuesday.

Would you like to know six simple and common sense ways that you can retain your customers – in fact have them brag about you – after you drop the ball?

1 This Is Not Your Grandpa’s Marketplace

 

In most industries, competing businesses typically compete with each other in the same ways, according to the same rules, with nearly the same products and services – and to the same exact customers.

When a marketplace becomes crowded and a company wants to stand out in order take business away from the competition, they normally have two choices: They can choose to compete on price – or they can customize their service somehow.

Neither of these is an ideal option in the “new marketplace” and I’ll tell you why:
