The Consequences of an Online Ego and Not Addressing the Customer

Set Your Pride Aside!

There are certain mistakes that instantly kill the purpose of a marketing campaign and excessive boasting is one of them. A boastful and self-centric online presence highlights a lack of understanding of what customers want. So, while marketing may be all about putting a word about who you are, what you do and how well you do it, too much boasting can destroy your online image altogether. 

How do you get customers to choose you without talking about your capabilities and accomplishments?

Bragging Ends up Costing More Than You’re Getting

Businesses need to understand that the purpose of branding is to highlight the value their service/product holds for the customer.  It should be about ‘What You Will Get’ rather than ‘What We Do?’ A simple change of subject can make a world of difference.

Blowing your own horn is a sign of ego and customers aren’t attracted to big-headed brands anymore.

One of the worst mistakes companies can make is putting no focus on building a connection with the customers. This is what makes some of the consumers turn away instead of being swept by the good vibes. Not only will your marketing efforts go in vain, you might end up losing your customers to your competitors who show that they care.

Creating the Wrong Hype Always Comes Back at You like a Boomerang

Sometimes boasting does work in your favor and creates too much of a hype in an attempt to attract clientele.

This may cause consumers to buy the product once, but what about when they actually use the product? Customer reviews, feedbacks and word of mouth, are all essential features that determine the true success of a business. Nothing guarantees dissatisfaction like setting unrealistic expectations.

Focus on Customer Perception and Value Proposition

When looking for a product or a service, a potential customer is not looking for a company that offers a wide range of services and claims to be the best. That consumer is actually looking for reasons why the products and services are beneficial to them and how they make their lives easier. They need a business that cares about their thoughts and opinions, instead of a company that cares more about the brand image it creates.

Consumers need a business they can relate to on their own level - a corporation that understands their wants and needs and visibly works to assist them in every way possible. So, when looking to make a purchase of any commodity, they search for businesses that promise to take care of their problem and offer the best value in return for their time and money.
