Attract the Right Type of Customer
Knowing the best ways to attract the right type of online customer in an increasingly flooded digital landscape can be tricky. Every brand is trying to stand out and be different — in exactly the same way, especially when it comes to content.
On the one hand, it’s easier than ever to publish blogs, v-blogs, podcasts, articles, or videos; and the flip-side everyone is publishing content that’s all reading the same.
More importantly, potential customers have BS detectors that are super alert. They can tell an imposter a kilometre away. What’s more, your potential strategic business-to-business (B2B) partners are infinitely connected to online information about your brand, thanks to it’s digital footprint and your competitors, which makes them even more discerning.

The best ways to attract online customers to your website in a competitive world
There are so many theories about the best ways to entice customers to your website. Below I’ve listed some that have helped me and my clients.
1) Find Your Unique Selling Point
Business success and wealth creation begins by first answering, and then living up to, a couple of deceptively simple questions:
Why should customers favour you over everyone else in your niche or industry?
What makes you unique in the eyes of your customers?
2) You’re NOT Selling your services or business over the long term
Most business owners love what they’re selling, but aren’t thinking five steps ahead. Instead they are selling solutions that everyone in the same market or niche is offering.
If you want an unfair advantage and the ability to charge the highest prices, while attracting more affluent customers, you have to start asking yourself:
“How can I sell my services and products in a way, that elicits the primary emotion my target market wants to feel or avoid?
3) Your Experience or Selling High Quality Products DOESN’T Attract Customers
Another misconception that you have to have the best products or be the best service provider, to enjoy a huge income in your business. In reality that’s approximately 10–20% of the success equation.
Your customers want value, a good product, excellent services but ask yourself: ‘What is it that attract customers to me?”
To begin with it begins with effective MARKETING and SALES. Once you find your Unique Selling Position, you will begin to target and hone-in a specific niche audience with your messages and in your lead advertising. That’s when you will have the right kind of customers ready to buy from you.

Most brands publish content that’s is good, but it’s not great. Why? Because it’s content that is published countless number of times, without thinking about if there is a real value for their actual customers.
Also most content is directed to everyone, which means it’s not that great for you or their niche audience. Business owners need to make sure they do their research or hire a professional writer to produce compelling content that gets read.
These potential pitfalls mean there are countless opportunities to build your audience, through targeted content that will keep them coming back for more. In this four part series I can show you the way, with tools you need to differentiate your brand with sizzling content marketing.
