Another common myth held by new business owners and entrepreneurs is the mistaken belief that people care about their business. The truth is people don’t – at least not at first. Small businesses are insignificant and unimportant until they either do something interesting or start to grow.
Establishing a solid business brand for a new limited company from day one is an important part of growing a successful business. Research has shown that brand value is important to the client base and that over time customers will actually grow a certain attachment to businesses. Any business that breaks its brand values and goes against its established principles is likely to risk damaging consumer opinion.
People Don’t Care About Your Limited Company
It is well known among copywriters and webmasters that writing about your business is a big no-no. People just aren’t interested. The reason is simple; you might have the most interesting business in the world, but the people only really care about one thing – themselves. Good writing should be aimed at the reader.
If you are trying to sell your products or services, then you should avoid saying things like “our company is great because we have been operating for 10 years and have the best prices around” and instead phrase your writing to make the reader feel important. Refer to the reader directly and explain why your product/service is good for them. How does your product benefit them and why is it the best around?
This sort of writing will be far more effective than simply telling them why you’re business is the best and the competition is rubbish. You aren’t a politician, you’re an entrepreneur.
Deliver a Good Service and People Might Care
If you have a good business with strong ethics and a high-quality service, then eventually people might start to care. If you market your business properly and concentrate on the quality of your product and the strength of your service then eventually it might get to the stage that you don’t even have to write about your business because other people are doing it for you!
Word of Mouth Is Still Alive!
In the current climate word of mouth is perhaps more alive than ever. With the surge in social networking sites and rise in popularity of services like Twitter, it is far easier for customers (and the public in general) to spread their feelings, both positive and negative, about a company or small business far and wide. Often instantly and long lasting. For a business which is delivering on its branding promises, this can only be a good thing.
