How to Captivate, Motivate, & Inspire Your Customers

Today, we’re going to talk about how to motivate, captivate, and inspire people to action through advertising. Often times, advertising can come off as being manipulative and sneaky, but good advertising and marketing should provide value to the end user. Think of yourself as a matchmaker for consumers. In this episode, Tyler and Michael are walking you through 4 key steps to inspire people to action through your brand’s advertising and marketing. 

How to motivate, captivate, and inspire people to action through advertising:

  • Step 1: Purpose
    • Ensure your purpose connects and resonates with the purpose of your target audience
    • What are your audience’s pain points, needs, wants, and goals?
    • Your purpose needs to be authentic to the brand – not just to appease customers
  • Step 2: Message 
    • Create a message that conveys your purpose
    • The message needs to speak to your target audience
    • Ensure that the message clearly shows your customer that your product or service will take them from where they are now to where they want to be (AKA: the after-state)
    • TIP: If sales are down, check your offer
  • Step 3: Creative 
    • Your designs need to convey the feeling of the after-state of your target audience
    • Inauthentic designs stick out in the wrong way and create a negative feeling
    • Creative needs to be specific to each platform
  • Step 4: Distribution
    • Understand where your audience is online, what they watch on TV, etc. so you know where to put your media
    • TIP: right person, right place, right time
