The Case For Specialization

If you’re having trouble with knowing what to write in your blog posts…

… or what to share on social media…

… or where to find your ideal clients…

… then today’s post is for you.

What I reveal today may very well blow the lid on your existing marketing efforts and finally get you the wins you the deserve.

Sound fair?

Good.

So let’s get down to it.

The secret to getting more leads and sales isn’t always a matter of having the right process.

Sure, that helps, but it’s not the whole picture.

That’s because one principle I’ve learned as a result of building the 11 Marketing Factors is that specialization wins when you want to attract high quality clients, earn more respect, and achieve more success as a consultant, copywriter, or other service-based entrepreneur.

Which means, if you have the right tactics but not the right focus, then all your hard work will be for naught.

(That is to say, you’ll have wasted your precious and irreplaceable time on tasks which won’t actually push the needle.)

Specialization – especially when combined with my 11 Marketing Factors – helps you know exactly:

  • Who you serve, and where to find them
  • What you sell, which is something they desperately want
  • What to sell it for, which is within their “Pricing Goldilocks Zone”
  • What problems it must solve, which they have in spades

… and much, much more.

When you know these things, you’ll be able to know with complete confidence whether a big idea, offer, or marketing message will work, because you’ll know your prospect as well as you know yourself.

Your stories will actually resonate with your audience more often.

Your offers will land with responses like, “This is EXACTLY what I need!”

Your pain point descriptions will make them say, “This is me!”

And your buyers? Well, they’ll be the kind of people who will actually use and implement what they buy.

But ┬áthis stuff doesn’t come by accident. It comes when you’re deliberate about the 11 Marketing Factors and when you SPECIALIZE.

So if you’re having trouble getting enough clients, then it’s time to niche down even further. W

Here are some more benefits to specialization:

** INDUSTRY EXPERTISE **

Imagine knowing everything that’s going on in your industry. Who the players are, what offers are being made, what’s working, what’s not working. You know the industry inside and out, and that lets you create better marketing than your “competition”. So you never sound like a copy-cat or a wannabe… you’re a leader who’s always one step ahead.

** AVATAR EXPERTISE **

Diving deep into the market also allows you to know exactly what your ideal buyer struggles with. You know what other “gurus” they’ve worked with. You know the books they’ve read. You know where they’ve succeeded, where they’ve failed, and what a “win” looks like for them. You even know what “trigger words” to include in your ┬ámarketing to make them buy.

** EXCELLENCY OF RESULTS **

Specialization allows you to master the delivery of a very specific result in a very specific way. You become proficient in consistently getting the promised result for your client. So you get more referrals, more positive testimonials, and more amazing case studies every time you take on a client. Which in turn keeps your calendar booked with amazing clients who pay well. Win-win for everyone!

** EFFICIENCY OF RESULTS**

In addition to consistently getting excellent results, you’re also going to get those results efficiently. You’ll be able to know how to do that thing – whatever it is you do – with speed because you’ll have seen so many permutations of the same problem. You’ll have enough experience to know when to do X instead of Y… or when Z is really best. So you end up doing less work while getting better results for higher pay and more respect.
