Episode Show Notes
Real talk — are you using general language in your content with the hope of having more people resonate and see themselves with it? There’s nothing wrong with it but in this era where standing out from the digital crowd is such a struggle—you might be unknowingly hurting your business.
One of the things that I notice we do as an entrepreneur is we have a tendency to generalize experiences to make it relevant.
We’re trying to categorize all these specific scenarios of our ideal audience. So we’re putting a ‘label,’ for lack of a better term. Thinking if I ‘label’ it then the more people can resonate without realizing that when we do this it’s easy for our ideal audience to pass right by it.
If you put the responsibility on your audience to come and ask you questions of what kind of service or product you offer, you’re turning away business.
Specific, meaningful content are the ones that are going to resonate with your ideal audience.
And so you need to not only pay attention to who you serve but also learn how to capture their interest and pull them in.
Don’t limit your content to generalities and passive statements, instead be more specific with your language. It piques the interest of your audience and gets them listening through.
Tune in to the full episode as I walk you through how to make this change so you can be more effective at attracting and converting clients.
