The 4Cs of Connection Marketing



Connection points allow for you to showcase your heart, your values, and your mission openly and in detail. How do you develop these connection points with your audience? It starts with knowing who you get the best results for.



Now that you’re connecting with your audience, it’s time to create a relationship. In the “create” phase of relationship marketing, we dig into understanding why people buy your products or services.



This is the marriage phase - where we cross over the bridge from marketing to sales. While connecting with new people and growing your audience is important - the point of relationship marketing is to actually convert people into PAYING customers for your business.



Your client relationship doesn’t end after you’ve made a sale, in fact - that’s really where the relationship begins. Most marketing agencies focus on front end sales - we focus on retention as well!

Connection Marketing Converts

Connection marketing is a lot like dating - it's all about getting to know the person on the other end. It focuses on building a relationship, appealing to emotion, and truly understanding your ideal clients. When people feel heard and understood - they convert.
