Sorry, But You Need To Stop Apologizing For Your Marketing

Are you one of those people who starts sentences with the word “sorry?” As in, “Sorry, but I just think coffee is better than tea.” I’ve been noticing that more and more lately. Not just in every day colloquial conversation, but in the way that businesses of various sizes manage their marketing.

The word sorry should never be used to start any marketing message or else you run the risk of diminishing the authority of your brand. Here’s why.

When Is Marketing Not Marketing?

When it comes to marketing there are a lot of ways to do it. And it’s wonderful to have so many opportunities but at the same time it can be so overwhelming that we end up with decision paralysis.

Here are just a few things to consider about whether a marketing idea is good – for you.

The Two Toughest Social Media Marketing Questions You Have To Answer

Should I have a Facebook page? Is my audience on Twitter? Do I have time to invest in social marketing? Why am I doing this?

Those are all great questions but they’re not the questions I’m talking about today. The questions I’m talking about today are even tougher than that and have a lot more to do with your business approach and philosophy than with the mechanics of marketing. They may keep you up at night for a little while but if you can get to the bottom of them you’ll have more fun and do better business.
