Be A Distinctive Business Owner And Stand Out!
You’re on Facebook, you’re scrolling through on your phone…flick, flick, flick.
You see an ad come up offering a secret formula, or a swipe file that will change your business overnight.
Because you are in business, you take note of the likes, comments and shares…interesting, because you are sure you have seen this ad somewhere before. In actual fact, you may have…copycat marketing on social media is on the rise.
Especially in this new reality of the economy these days, it seems to change by the minute.
It annoys you no end, seeing others in your market, who are not as good as you, getting the leverage you want…frustration and being caught up working IN your business is making you sick.
The thing is…taking the copycat marketing way, is one sure way to fail, to waste money on advertising, or worse, attract the completely wrong client to your business.

You have heard of it before; it is the art of knowing who it is you want to work with. Where you can describe their challenges and their desires better than they can.
The cost to implement: Zero…nothing! By getting this right in your message, you won’t need to spend a cent to implement this one change into your business.
The hitch: There isn’t one, just some time to work ON your business and BE the business owner you want to be.
When you get it right, the reward helps you, your market and the greater good. The result: A clear message to the right people, higher engagement, more of the right clients, which means more sales and cash in the bank.
IT IS AN ART…TAKE IT SERIOUSLY
After almost 10 years in the online world of business, I can vouch for the fact of attracting the right people at the right time with the right message and t
