Authentic to workEvery detail has to be authentic to work

No matter how you do things online, every detail has to be authentic to work, it’s important to notice every little detail. It doesn’t matter if you are writing a sales letter, planning the script for your next video, designing a web page or anything else you do, details make the difference.

People subliminally notice little differences and little inconsistencies – these are the difference between winning a new customer and failing to convince a prospect. Everything you do should have “energy”, be enthusiastic, authentic and honest and without the details correct they will not be translated to your audience . As a simple example, a newsreader on TV speaks in a certain tone based on the story type and dresses a certain way (at least the parts you can see and when they don’t it makes things either funny or unbelievable.

The example I have used from the Morecambe and Wise Show may be funny, but I hope it illustrates my point. Next time you are creating something, look at things critically, if you are writing then read what you have written our loud and think about your perfect target market and what they need, check what you are wearing and what’s in the background if you shoot a video, but make sure that whatever you do, you have, to the best of your ability, conveyed what you want, in the way you want to.
