"Them Before You" Marketing Strategy for Effective Engagement

Have you ever experienced the frustration of dealing with a common problem in your life? If so, you know how challenging it can be to find a solution that truly addresses your specific pain points. That's where the "them before you" approach comes in. This simple yet powerful concept revolves around the idea that people are naturally more interested in a conversation when it directly addresses them and their needs.

Imagine this scenario: You're struggling with [problem relevant to the audience], and despite your best efforts, you can't seem to find a satisfactory solution. The frustration mounts as you search for answers, but nothing quite fits the bill.

Now, picture stumbling upon a marketing message that speaks directly to your situation. It starts with a simple acknowledgment: "Have you ever experienced [problem]? If so, you know how frustrating [scenario] can be... Instantly, you feel understood. Someone gets it. And then comes the promise of a solution: "I just found this [solution], and it led to [result]."

This approach puts the focus squarely on them, the audience. It acknowledges their challenges and offers a solution. It's not about the marketer or their product/service—it's about meeting your needs and providing value that resonates with your experiences.

By speaking directly to your audience's pain points, desires, and aspirations, you can instantly create a deeper connection and foster genuine engagement. Whether it's through personalized messaging, targeted content, or tailored solutions, the key is to prioritize the audience's interests above all else.

So, the next time you create video content or an email marketing campaign, remember to put them before you.Put yourself in your audience's shoes, empathize with their challenges, and offer solutions that speak directly to their needs. By doing so, you'll not only capture their attention but also earn their trust and loyalty in the long run.
