Data is a person!

Does anyone like this ‘GET LEADS! BUY DATA! SELL STUFF!’ type of marketing? I find it painful and disrespectful to potential customers.

Data is a person’s personal details! A Lead is a PERSON who may or may not be interested in doing business with you.

In my view, a successful business transaction is one where both parties win – a #WynneWin!

The customer has their ‘problem’ solved and the seller receives payment.

As for selling data, I don’t know how that could ever have been made a legal business. It’s like a more modern version of the slave trade – selling details instead of the people themselves. Who gave these companies ownership?

If you would like to solve problems for people and make them happy, this makes the world a better place! And people are happy to pay to do business with you!

This is the type of marketing I do with my clients. It’s authentic and rewarding.

If you want a hand to shape your business model, culture and marketing into this, do contact me for a chat 🙂
