One of the marketing phrases I love is: “If you confuse, you lose” – @donmilleris

How we can strengthen our marketing in a very simple way?

This is a quote from one of my favourite marketers, a guy called Don Miller, and his whole *thing* in marketing is focused on clarifying your message (you could say, it’s one of his ‘chapters’).

We really need our communication to be very clear for people, and very clear in our marketing for the people that we serve in terms of how we can help them.

I have mentioned in the past the importance, as psychologists, of ‘providing clarity and voicing reality.’

This is one of those cornerstones of clarifying your message but, Don Miller’s point here is, the clearer you can be in your messaging, the better your marketing will work. No matter the technology, the platform, the gizmos, the SEO (search engine optimisation.)

All that is required is to be clear in your message. 

Miller also says, ‘Don’t be cute or clever. Be clear.’ I find this is a good way to screen my messages. Am I being cute or clever at the expense of clarity? 

Clarity wins every time.

I don’t want to be in a f*****g SEO race with Google

Marketing as a digital arms race’ is so problematic for psychology practices. I decided to train as a certified Storybrand Guide & started Storybrand Guide training yesterday. Don Miller really hammered home, time and time again, the need for clarity in how we...

The well stocked library metaphor

The well stocked library metaphor

See your psychology practice as a well stocked library As psychologists we have a tendency to have an abundance of books anyway - we have a well-stocked library literally and figuratively. Since we're experts and because we see a lot of things that are relevant to our...
