In business, you can’t afford to be a “me too”.
You have to be unique — or at the very least remarkable.
It’s not just about your USP, or your marketing, or how amazing your product or services are.
Being different and remarkable starts with the simplest things. It starts with how you communicate.
If you have a distinctive voice that resonates with your target audience — and can’t be confused with anyone else — you will never want for attention, or customer feedback, or sales.
A compelling brand voice is hard to develop, and even harder to keep intact.
It’s tough enough when you are the one writing all the copy — but what happens when you need to hire someone else to do that?
On the one hand, you have all the regular challenges…
- What if that person is a terrible writer?
- What if you can’t afford their fees?
- What if they don’t meet your deadlines?
But there’s also another potential problem, one that’s just as serious — what if your copywriter’s voice doesn’t fit your brand? How do you teach them? What do you do to make sure that any new writer you get on board can learn your brand language — fast?
These are deep, advanced questions with no easy answers. That’s why, on today’s episode of Get Genius podcast, we are thrilled to have a guest who solves these complex problems for a living!
