Being Creative is Essential for Online Success
Do you have a strategy that ensures your online business
stands out from the crowd?
If your answer to the above is NO then you need to address
this issue, because if you don't, it is unlikely that your
online presence will even be noticed.
With there being so much competition in every field on the
internet it is essential that you offer your target market
something different than your competitors.
By distinguishing your product or service you immediately
position your business apart from the masses of your
competition and therefore your chances of capturing your
target market are greatly enhanced.
But how do you do this, you may ask when there is apparently
no other way to package your business other than the tried
and tested way?
Well, in my opinion, this is the time to be creative and
think & do things differently.
If you employ a creative thought process when it comes to
packaging and presenting your product or service the chances
are you will get close to the top of the pile instead of
languishing hidden down with the masses of similar type
However, the thought of having to come up with new ideas is
pretty scary although all of us have at least one or two
creative cells lurking in our brains somewhere.
If you have ever used an implement for a purpose other than
that for which it was intended, demonstrates a certain
degree of creativity. So if you have ever done this you may
have an aptitude for thinking outside of the box which is
certainly a valuable asset for any businessman.
As an online entrepreneur selling widgets your creative
strategy should be to communicate the features and benefits
of these widgets in a uniquely aggressive but charming
manner to captivate your site visitor's interest.
To do this you need to make a list of all the ways you can
think of to deliver such a message and combine them with
existing ideas to stimulate your creative thinking.
Try and perform this process in a relaxed environment as
this is the most conducive way to coming up with brilliant
ideas. Remember where Archimedes discovered the theory of
relativity - in the bath, whereafter he ran outside in the
nude shouting 'eureka!'
Once you have decided on a creative concept you can use it
for a long time and milk it for all the mileage you can get
out of it. This means that, as most of us aren't blessed
with the same degree of creative variety as the top Ad
Agency executives are, you won't be pressured into coming up
with a new strategy every so often.
Online businesses have one of the most popular and fastest
growing mediums to show off their products and services and
those that take full advantage of this medium by creative
positioning will the success they deserve.
A well executed concept and strategy is vital for internet
success and longevity.
