Have you ever wondered how to find the right balance between running a professional and personal business?
In this episode, I discuss the most effective and modern way of doing business that incorporates both aspects into your marketing. As business owners, we have to make sure we don’t come across as unprofessional but we also can’t be boring, stale or stiff to resonate with our audience.
Think about what it means to be professional in your business. When I posed this question to my Modern Marketing Collective they said they wanted to be taken seriously, to be respected and for their work to be seen as having quality.
With that fantastic definition in mind, let’s stop and reconsider being ‘personal’ as being ‘authentic’. You may be surprised to learn that 86% of consumers say authenticity is a key factor when deciding what brands they like and support.
So how can you be authentic and professional?
In this episode I’ll give you three ways to introduce authenticity into your marketing and create a community that supports and cares about your business because they know you truly understand them and their needs.
This method is the modern way of doing business, so don’t just try it once. You’re a human and not a business entity, so share your human experience in your content and you’ll make an honest and open connection with your audience.
