You Don’t Want To Feel Sales-y…(1 of 7)

I know. You don’t want to sound sales-y.

You feel weird “promoting” your work.

You’d really rather just DO your work & have someone else take care of the marketing.

I know.

But odds are there isn’t anyone else to hand the marketing off to, and even if there were, that person isn’t going to know or care nearly as much about your work as you do.

So let’s play with the vocabulary a bit and see if that helps.

What if you thought of marketing this way:

Marketing Is Making Friends With People You Don’t Know Are Your Friends Yet

Here’s the thing – you don’t have to market to everybody.

You just have to market to the people who are ALREADY INTERESTED in your work.

And guess what? Those people probably already share your values.

So – right now – make a quick list of the VALUES that are most important to you & your work.

For example, the values of The Organized Artist Company are:

Creativity

Authenticity

Transparency

Kindness

Good Humor & Fun

Next time you need to write a bio or an email or a sales page or an email or whatever, run it past your values & make sure it’s a match. This will help insure that you are using the words & phrases that accurately reflect what you do. It will also ATTRACT the perfect clients & customers right to your door.

Honey, You Are On A Mission

You do the work you do because you know it helps people and you love it.

That love, that desire to help and those values that you just wrote down add up to more than creative entrepreneurship.

They add up to a mission.

And when you are on a mission, you are going to be pulled & stretched & challenged & celebrated & pushed waaaaay out of your comfort zone. Be ready for that.

You may not want to market your business, but you can learn to do it well and may even grow to LOVE it. (I do!)

Finally, consider this aphorism:

If No One Is Complaining About Your Marketing, Then You Are Not Doing Enough Marketing

You deserve to have your business be financially sustainable, values-driven and joyful. Not easy, mind you – but joyful.

And improving your copy writing is the NUMBER ONE key to your success.

So…
