The Hero in Your Customer’s Journey

“The best marketing doesn’t feel like marketing.” – Tom Fishburne

In the bustling marketplace of today, where countless businesses vie for attention, understanding and connecting with your customer has never been more crucial. Your marketing needs to revolve around your customers, showcasing how your product or service can solve their problems or make their lives better.

Take Airbnb, for example. They didn’t just sell accommodation; they sold an experience, making the customer feel like an adventurer exploring new places. This wasn’t about rooms or prices; it was about how customers felt while traveling. Airbnb’s approach made customers feel like the stars, with the company playing a supporting role in their adventure.

Your marketing should make the customer feel like the hero in their own story. It’s not about your product’s features or your company’s achievements. It’s about how your product helps the customer overcome a challenge or achieve a goal.

Action Step: Review your marketing materials. Do they focus on your product, or do they show how your product fits into the customer’s life? Try rewriting a piece of content with the customer as the protagonist. Show how your product or service helps them win their day, solve a problem, or achieve a dream.

Remember, effective marketing makes the customer the star. It’s about their needs, their desires, and their victories. When you make your marketing customer-centric, you’re not just selling a product; you’re offering a solution that fits into their lives seamlessly.
