People don’t buy a bed.

“What your product can do” is not important.

People care — 1,000 songs in your pocket.

People don’t buy what you sell — they don’t care about your (or your competitor) product.

They only care about how your product can make their lives better.

Theodore Levitt said it best:

“People don’t want to buy a quarter-inch drill. They want a quarter-inch hole!”

It’s your job to make customers understand the benefits of your product.

Sending email? Make your email benefit oriented.

Spend time writing an email!
