Great Marketing Depends on Urgency!

October 13, 2011 — Leave a comment

If it’s urgent, it sells now.  Medical emergencies don’t allow people to shop for the best price, the person in need just does it.  That’s why I like using security as a wedge product or door opener.  It demands attention when we can find something urgent; it might be a compelling event or an impending audit, or it might be something we discover through an assessment.  I’ll be giving much more on this tomorrow in my Demand Generation Webinar – which is free, but also completely filled up and has a waiting list.  But get on the list just in case (Click Here).  I want everyone of my readers to know how to do this!

But Security and medicine are the not the only ways to create urgency.  Having a limited supply, a limited amount of a certain type of resource, or having one of the only offerings in a certain niche, with limited capacity does the same thing.  A special offer with a limited time to buy does this for retail. An assessment that reveals large amounts of money being wasted – with a recommendation that will cut TCO by 50% certainly demands the CFOs attention.

Do you have urgent offerings?  If not, you need to create some.  Using your discovery process, risk analysis, a study of some type, or by creating something unique with limited availability – start thinking about how you can do this.  Without it, you leave money on the table every time.
