Does marketing your business and selling your stuff leave you feeling fake and salesy?
You’re not alone. So many – TOO many – business owners are out there marketing and selling in ways they think they “should” and those tactics feel fake and salesy and smarmy and awkward and just plain inauthentic to them.
And even worse, you might think something’s wrong with you if marketing and sales feel gross. You might assume you’re just “not good at marketing” or you “suck at sales.”
But, friend, I’m here to tell you that’s just not true.
After working with so many different types of people and Marketing Personality Types, I’m sure that marketing does NOT have to feel fake and salesy and there’s certainly nothing wrong with you if you haven’t found marketing that feels good to you yet.
I’ll show you exactly how to find a marketing strategy that feels good to implement in just a minute. But first, I need you buy-in to this idea. I need you to commit to letting go of the fake and salesy tactics and begin implementing your feel-good marketing strategy.
Why? Because feeling fake and salesy just isn’t worth it…
3 Reasons to Stop Feeling Fake and Salesy in Your Marketing
You did not go against the majority of society, quit your job, and start your own company to end up feeling fake and salesy and smarmy and awkward trying to market and sell your stuff. You went against the grain because you believed in doing life and work and business a different way – a way that felt good to you.
You were made in a unique way, for a unique purpose in this world. When something feels fake, salesy, inauthentic, that’s a sign that you’re not showing up in a way you were meant to. You’re refusing to use the unique gifts, talents, and strengths you were given and you’re dulling the impact you could have by showing up inauthentically.
Marketing takes at least some of your time, energy, and even money, right? At a minimum, small business owners are usually putting in 10 of their own hours a week on marketing and sales. So if you’re spending a large chunk of your work week feeling fake, salesy, and misaligned you’re spending a large chunk of your work week having your energy sucked out of you. YUCK. Time is so valuable, especially to a small business owner. Why waste even a second on energy-sucking marketing?
Now do I have your attention?
It’s time to find marketing that feels good to you – NOT fake and salesy. Because when you feel good as you market your business, the right clients and customers are naturally attracted to that positive energy. You feel good, they feel good, your business progresses.
But how do you find a marketing strategy that actually feels good?
Well, you could continue throwing spaghetti at the wall to see what feels right.
