Learn how to write a good article that your customers will want to read and that will build trust. Read the article on business writing below.

Increase Sales By Flying Under Your Prospects' "Radar Defenses"

How do you persuade someone to do what you want them to do?

A whole world of marketing exists around us trying to do that every minute of the day. Do you even notice it anymore or, like your prospects, have you subconsciously set up a system of radar defenses against the daily bombardment of marketing messages?

Take a minute and count up the advertising methods which fight for your attention (and money) every day.  Just the basic list includes:

Yellow page ads

Newspaper and magazine ads

Postcards, catalogs, and direct mail circulars in your snail mail box

Radio pitches interrupting the flow of your favorite songs

TV ads - about 20 minutes worth per hour now

Hundreds of storefronts, mega malls, and strip malls

Highway billboards by the thousands

Circulars hung on your doorknob

Illegal signs on stop signs and telephone poles

Legitimate email messages

Spam email or UCE (unsolicited commercial email)

Just these 11 sources can overwhelm your brain with marketing messages.  Like trapped rats, people develop defenses against this never-ending onslaught.  They throw up a wall or a radar defense that goes into action the minute they smell a pitch or a sales job.  Don't blame them. We all do it!

So how can you get around this psychological wall against the constant sales and marketing messages? Well, the answer does NOT lie in hitting people with more frequent and obnoxious advertising or sly, sneaky tactics.  You might get them to trust you for a minute, but it will backfire in the long run.

You must do two things instead:

1. First, you must establish credibility for yourself and your business as an expert.

2. Second, you must reduce their fears about doing business with you. 

Doing these two things will get you past their defenses and allow you the opportunity to persuade them to buy your product. 

So how do you accomplish these two simple things? What will win someone's attention, raise your credibility, and lower their fear factor all at the same time? The one-word answer really applies to most everyone. 

Trust!

If a seller can get behind your defenses with information which makes you trust them, then that credibility will carry over into a sale much of the time. 

How can you get this credibility?

Well, take this next fact as online marketing gospel, for many people have proven its effectiveness. 

Fact: Publishing and promoting with free articles gives you one of the most powerful opportunities available to tip the buyer's credibility scale in your favor. 

How can we prove this works? Quite easily actually.  Take a break from reading this and go check out a newspaper or magazine for a minute. 

Which do you trust more, the ads or the articles? Most people will choose the articles hands down.  Why? Because the articles don't try to sell you anything. Instead, they hand out useful information for educational or other practical purposes. 

Most of us grew up in a culture which says we can believe and trust what appears in the standard news or information; format.  In other words, if it appears in print, then we can believe and trust the author.

So go ahead! Use this lifetime of conditioning to your advantage in selling your
products and services!

Very few things will create an atmosphere of trust and confidence in people as reading one of your articles on a subject that greatly interests them.  It shows you know your business. It also demonstrates you will do more than just try to sell them something.

Publishing articles literally lets you fly under their advertising radar defenses.

So remember these points when deciding whether or not to use articles to promote your business:

1. Few things create as much trust and confidence in the minds of potential customers as reading an article you wrote on a subject which specifically and intensely interests them.

2. Articles establish credibility quickly because, right or wrong, we've all been
trained to trust the & news.

3. An article, or series of articles, will differentiate you from the competition, who bombard people with nothing but sales messages. 

4. Providing content-rich, non-sales-oriented articles will also help build and
solidify your relationship with existing customers so they give you repeat business.
