If I would never buy anything from you without a coupon, maybe I’m just not that into you.
If I’m in the market for a product you sell and you aren’t one of the first two or three brands I think of, maybe I’m just not that into you.
If I’ve never bought anything from you despite hundreds of emails or dozens of mailers, maybe I’m just not that into you.
If I wouldn’t really miss you if you were gone, maybe I’m just not that into you.
If I don’t think of you in the way you’d like me to–or if I’ve tuned you out completely–what makes you think that more and louder will work?
If I don’t fundamentally like what you have to offer, paying me to like you may not be the best idea. There are terms for that and none of them are nice.
For many brands too much time and energy is wasted trying to seduce the promiscuous shopper. A lot of money is spent attempting to bludgeon potential customers into submission.
If I’m just not that into you one of two things is almost certainly true. Either what you offer is not for me and you are merely wasting your time. Or you haven’t yet done the work to make it sufficiently relevant and remarkable.
As Bernadette Jiwa reminds us “more is not a short-cut to mattering.”
