Everyone who is successful in business would like to think it's because of their actions. The longer people stay in business, the more solid and unchanging those beliefs become.
The Johari Window says there are some things in the open that you know about yourself and you share with a prospect who also knows about them. Things like great customer service, keen prices.
There are things in your blind spot that the prospect knows but you don't. Maybe they had a particular past experience, for instance.
There are things that are unknown both to you and your prospect. There's some potential in there.
And finally there are things that you know that you keep hidden from or don't communicate with the client. This part is key.
Sit a while in the quiet with pencil and paper (or a dictaphone), perhaps for an hour (it takes a while for the banging of the day to quieten).
Answer as many of these questions as you can:
First time visitors tell us:
One of the most unusual questions we've ever had was:
One thing people tell us they are confused about our business is:

Hopefully, your answers are stories, hence the dictaphone. Capture them.
What we are trying to do here is to uncover things you know about your business that you don't communicate to your prospects.

You know what makes your business unique. Sometimes, your clients don't.

Get your daily marketing tweaks aurally with this new podcast.
Hi, I'm John Allsopp and I founded A Million Tweaks in 2009 to do just what it says, continually improve marketing systems.
Nowadays I'm still just as hungry to learn the latest and most effective marketing techniques in what is an incredibly fast moving world. Basically I buy all the training courses so you don't have to.
Actually that's not an insignificant thing. Back in the day I got a first in my degree (Internet Computing) because I did the work, obviously, but also because I studied well and that means taking information from different sources and mixing things up to find the truth in the middle, and I still do that today. I remember waking up one Sunday, switching on the wooden, push button TV we had next to the bed and Tony Buzan came on with his mind maps .. it's still how I study now.
There used to be a very popular service that read all the business books and summarised them for busy executives. I'm not sure if that's still going, but this service is like a modern equivalent, except we'll actually do the work for you too if you like.
In marketing, however, there is an absolute truth: the result. It's often more effort to talk about marketing improvements than to enact them. Don't talk: test. If it works it works. So A Million Tweaks is about making small, low risk changes every day and iterating our way to your fame and fortune.
Anyway, I was supposed to be introducing myself in this box. I live in Scarborough with my partner (who has ME/CFS). I'm 6'6" tall which I think makes me an observer. I drum in a ska band (come see us it's a great night) :-)
