There is Nothing Tricky About Permission

There’s an increasingly popular trend among advertisers that think they have to trick consumers into paying attention. They do it with too-good-to-be-true offers, flashy production and bait-and-switch techniques. Does it work? Yes, sometimes it certainly does. But it’s the most expensive, invasive and difficult sort of marketing to pull off. So why try?

Instead, consider just asking your customers and prospect for permission to talk with them. And once you have that, begin an open, honest, straightforward dialogue with them about who you are and how you can serve them. It’s inexpensive (darn near free, actually) it’s totally non-invasive and it works better than interruption marketing.

So who do you have permission to communicate with?
