A Man Walks Into A Phone Booth: What’s Your Unique Value Proposition

An old wise man once said:

‘To love is to suffer.

To avoid suffering one must not love.

But then one suffers from not loving.

Therefore to love is to suffer, not to love is to suffer.

To suffer is to suffer.

To be happy is to love.

To be happy then is to suffer.

But suffering makes one unhappy.

Therefore, to be unhappy one must love, or love to suffer, or suffer from too much happiness.

I hope you’re getting this down?’ -Woody Allen

online-marketing-made-simpleYour online strategy does not have to cause suffering, over- angsting, overwhelm, neuroses, or extreme drama (like Woody seems to). KISS. Do I need to explain this acronym? If so, email me and I’ll let you in on it. Suzen@omaginarium.com.

No, we break it down, and then break it down some more. The simpler the better. That being said, no matter what your marketing strategy is, it will always need to contain the key elements discussed in my video How Content Marketing Can Transform Your Business, it must always be offering a differentiator that sets you apart from the competition and is a GREAT value…so that we all have a warm and fuzzy feeling when thinking about you and your company, and it must, if using content marketing, which I urge you all to in one way, shape or form, make sure that content is catchy, different and rises above the others. It sounds hard, I know, but truly it need not be. Call me maybe. [Read more...]

How to Be the Obvious Choice

“This seems like a lot of work for God’s sake. I have a website. I have a Facebook account. I send emails. I am a busy so and so. Why do I also need to be creating all this “content”?”

Let’s discuss amongst ourselves:

In order to make your medical practice or business stand out these days, you will need more than a website. You just do, even if it’s a beautiful one, and here’s the reason why: there are many of you out there, I’m sorry to say. There are many of me out there as well, if it makes you feel any better. So, what, in this new world of information/media blasting overload and intense competition, will make you and your business stand apart and get noticed? The number of business websites and blogs have more than quadrupled in the last 4 years. Getting noticed as the clear choice is getting harder and harder, unless you are in an industry with no competition.

So what sets you apart?

  • Your reputation-hopefully a good one- for sure,
  • The quality of your work or products,
  • Yes, your great customer service, for sure.

But guess what? Your competition also has a great reputation, gets referrals and has great customer service. And they give full refunds, no questions asked. So. Back you are at square 1. [Read more...]

12 Most Important Things To Know When Creating an Online Marketing Strategy

3 weeks ago I ran a contest asking for great idea’s to help me get my blog onto 12most.com, a website that has taken over my brain. I’m on a mission to have my blog published there. Why? Who knows; I love the concept and the creativity, and the writers are top notch. And I got some great responses, although it was hard, wasn’t it, coming up with topics that weren’t just 12, but 12 MOST….that tripped most people up. I also promised that the winner of my little contest , should it get me accepted into 12most.com would win either a multi page, in depth website analysis, or if the winner could care less about the optimization of their website or a website at all, a 30 minute marketing consultation on the subject of their choice. I’m going with the suggestion of Jack Reilly. Owner of nothing other than a nice wardrobe and cool condo, Jack is in sales at a start up new media company in Philadelphia. So I don’t know if he needs my services at all, but heck, we can skype about the Eagles. Or cream cheese. He had a great suggestion, and I chose it because the subject is relevant and useful for all those lost in Traditional Marketing Land, and unsure of what your next steps should be so as not to flush your hard earned advertising and marketing budget down the drain. 12 Most Important Things To Know When Creating An Online Marketing Strategy.
