  • Watch This - Is This Relevant To Sales & Marketing?

    January 1st, 2013 by Arik Brooks



    I must say that this video is much cooler than something for a marketing and sales topic. But since that is what much of this blog is about, let's look at this through the eyes of a marketing / sales professional. When I watch this I am reminded that there is something powerful in the timing and rythms of how a message is delivered. Can an idea be sold in a large part on how it is delivered? Do people anticipate what's next? Or, is timing crucial for when the key points are delivered in let's say an ad, a sales pitch or a web page. I think so. The people who might want to buy our product or service are expecting us to provide an answer for what they need. It's the "when" and "how" the message is delivered that often makes or breaks the deal. Think about great speakers. These people are able to gain acceptance on a topic through the sheer force of their persuasive delivery. It goes beyond what they are saying. It is how they say it that either builds trust or dilutes trust. Maybe we should spend as much effort on the rythm and timing of our messages as we do on the content.
