Traditional marketing is all about talking at your audience by telling, informing, and directing. It’s a very one way directional approach that doesn’t necessarily engage with your audience and can feel dry, too formal and insincere. With online marketing and social media today, we have the power to turn that communication around to a relational conversation speaking with our audience.
In this episode, I talk about how to create a strong connection with your audience by shifting to a relational approach and genuine connection. I talk about why this matters, what it will do for your business, your client engagement and tips on how to make the shift.
