Marketing Mistake 30: Confusing Marketing And Sales Processes
Naked Marketing - Episode 30 - Nathan Zadworny

Naked Marketing Podcast with Guest, Nathan Zadworny

I had the pleasure to speak with Nathan Zadworny, who offers marketing consulting services for small to medium-sized businesses that want to optimize their internal processes.

This episode hits the ground running with Nathan already being “naked” with us on his biggest marketing mistake. He clarifies that when he first started, he thought that he had to do everything in one go – from marketing to sales. He believed that people needed to hear everything in one pitch that he overwhelmed both himself (and his audience) with too many promises and false narratives.

Instead, Nathan explains the beauty of making smaller, yet more significant promises that manage the customer’s expectations. By delivering what is promised all the time, customers learn to trust you and eventually become repeat clients. This has a far greater impact on revenue than just one-sale clients.

Marketing in the digital age, he says, allows you to slowly get people ready for the sale. Through Facebook and LinkedIn, you can gently guide your target audience to become more familiar with your specific product and service before you actually make a sales pitch.

Nathan Zadwornys Top Suggestions on How to Avoid Marketing Mistakes

Don’t overpromise. It’s better to make a smaller – yet more significant – promise that answers the intended audience’s specific problem.
Know exactly what you bring to the table. Similar to the previous point, manage expectations of your product and only market what you can deliver.
Build on the trust from the first sale. Sales is an ongoing process and one that needs to be continued even after the first sale.
