Why is it that we hear a car alarm going off these days and barely think twice about it? We barely notice it. In contrast, 10 years ago we would have stopped everything we were doing to see what was going on. Why do I bring this up? The distraction of the car alarm mirrors the noise that takes place all around us in 2015. My question for you is short and simple. Why does your message matter? Does it stand out from the noise around you? And who really cares? Does it really make a difference or simply sound…
Have you ever thought about where a person’s email address comes from? Does it have something to do with their brand? Yes it does. Watch this one-minute video as I explain this concept in more detail.
First, you have to think of their email name. It is likely unique to their brand in some way. Does the name tie to their birthdate? Their name or nickname? Their hobby or favorite number? I have seen people do all of these. Second, we should consider (as most people do not like changing email addresses) what company name the person has as part of their email EX: Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, AOL, etc. These all will tell you something about the person—in most cases of their age and when they first got email.
So, why does all of this matter? You must study the deep “why level” and under the surface things people do to really understand another person. This was an easy example of one way to do it. Remember, as I discuss in my recently released book, “Would You Buy from You? Your Brand Makes the Difference,”that we must think in an “under the iceberg” way to truly understand another person. And, yes, once that is done, it is your brand that makes all the difference.
