(Video) Clearly Conveyed Communications Turns 9: Still Giving You A Voice

Nine years. It’s hard to believe that Clearly Conveyed Communications has been giving brands and businesses a voice for nine years.

When I started this journey, I never dreamed of nine years down the road. I was trying so hard to get through each day (and still am, in some ways) that looking this far into the future seemed crazy.

I think I’ve aged 10 years in the last year plus, and I definitely have a few more gray hairs. But Clearly Conveyed Communications is still here, and I’m so grateful to everyone who has supported my little dream along the way.

I’m blessed to work with some of the best clients in the world and collaborate with fellow small business owners, creators, movers and shakers.

I’m going to take a minute to soak in this moment and celebrate before getting back to work. Thank you again to everyone who has supported the CCC journey in every way, large and small. I can’t wait to see what’s next.

Cheers to the future!

THANK YOU for your support,

Jaime

How to Attract Customers to Your Brand with Inbound Marketing

How to Attract Customers to Your Brand with Inbound Marketing

How does inbound marketing work? Watch a coneflower.

On a recent visit to the Akron Art Museum and its beautiful garden, I stopped to watch some butterflies flying around a coneflower. Coneflowers attract butterflies with their sweet nectar, so people love to plant them in their gardens. Plus, they don’t require much attention, withstand colder temperatures and can be divided every few years to attract even more butterflies to your garden.

So, let’s compare this process to your inbound marketing efforts. You can attract butterflies (your target audience) to your coneflower (product or service) with sweet nectar (compelling content). While your inbound marketing efforts do require attention, they’re worth the effort—and help is available. Plus, these efforts can help you withstand a cold spell in your business and can be replicated to help you grow your business.

Inbound: Not Your Father’s Marketing

Create and share content your target audience wants. Are you a lawn care company? Share lawn maintenance tips, including seasonal activities people should be doing throughout the year (i.e. applying fertilizer, weeding). Help people care for their lawnmower and other yard maintenance tools. When they’re ready to buy, they’ll turn to you—because you’ve built trust by giving them the information they need when they needed it.

When you do mention your products or services, educate your target audience on how you’ll improve their lives. Go beyond listing features to share benefits your customers will receive from your product or service. What pain point(s) does it address? How will it make their lives better?

How can Inbound help me?
