Value first is the name of the game. People don’t want to feel sold to, so the best way to sell to them without selling is to teach them.
Teaching someone how to solve a problems is often viewed by narrow-minded marketers as giving away the super secret sauce. This is not the case.
The more you help someone solve their problem, even by giving step-by-step instructions, the more they will like and trust you, which are two things needed for people to feel comfortable buying.
So how can you help solve people’s problems? One way is through an email education series. This day-by-day drip, when done right, will keep you top of mind of your customer, provide them actionable tactics to help them with their problem, and position you as someone who is genuinely interested in helping them.
