Key Lessons Learned:

Wow Factor Marketing Techniques

  • This is all about taking your clients and prospects eyes off the price.
  • You are nuts if you set up a business based on price, as big box will beat you on price every time!


1. Identify your most profitable customer

  • Many people identify their target audience, but this needs to be drilled down further.

2. Create a WOW factor

  • McDonald’s Happy Meal is a great example of a company that has been doing this for decades.
  • Unless you have an organic wow factor such as the iPhone or Rubik’s Cube, then you need to create an artificial wow factor.

3. Use a problem/solution scenario in all marketing

  • Nurofen/Advil is good at this.

4. Turn your website from an information center into a sales juggernaut

  • Too many people have websites without direct response marketing.
  • Welcome, problem/solution, and video testimonials.
  • No one goes to the testimonial page. If you have a great testimonial, put it on your home page.

5. Repetitive Trade

  • You never collect one Happy Meal toy at McDonald’s it’s always a series of 4 or more.
  • Stimulate loyalty by creating rewards systems so you continue to benefit from repetitive trade

Keep Your Eyes off the Price

  • Most small business owners gravitate toward the price discount game because it’s easy and they don’t fully understand marketing.
  • People often think of marketing as an expense to the business or a one-time event.
  • The minute you stop marketing you are invisible. Marketing is a perpetual thing.


Working With Jerry Seinfeld

  • The program to take everyone’s eyes off the price was “get a home loan and get a free holiday.”
  • Within one month they doubled their home loans, and within 12 months had tripled them. This is billions of dollars.
  • This is the only bank in the world who never advertised an interest rate on their home loan for a decade.
  • Jerry Seinfeld came on board as the spokesman in 2011.
  • The market share tripled when Jerry fronted the bank’s advertising.


How to Wow Them!

  • In order to wow people, you have to take focus off the price and make it more experiential.
