The Power of Honesty and Integrity to Boost Sales and Longevity
By: Brenda Anderman
You can only focus your internet marketing campaign on either one of these two mindsets: integrity or distrust.
Contrary to public opinion, the line between the two is very thin and there isn't much room for adjustment. Marketers will
try to beat the system while telling themselves they are still running an honest campaign, but if their work is not one of
integrity, it falls under the category of deceit.
Unfortunately, honesty and integrity are missing from the internet,
and businesses in search of a quick dollar forgot what it means to truly serve the customer. It is very easy to get entangled
in quick riches because an honest campaign may take a little longer to develop. What most business do not realize is that
campaigns focused on making money may lead to instant cash in the beginning, but these methods threaten their own longevity.
What good is a little cash upfront if it does not turn into wealth at a later stage?
Honest businesses often lead in
their industries because leaders arrive at their positions by serving people for extended periods of time. People who are
exposed to these reputable establishments become loyal followers because they are receiving more value than they ever expected.
This is a prime example of an honorable business. Are you offering more value than people expect? Are you giving your customers
a sincere customer service experience and putting their needs first? If you answered "yes" to these questions, you are most
likely handling a campaign of integrity.
Integrity in business requires patience and character. If you are the type
of person who sees the end before the beginning you will run your business the right way. You can envision the end result
of an honest journey and you realize the greater rewards in the future to those who diligently do what is required in the
present. As a result, you will not only boost sales, you will be on your way to industry leader status. The mark of a true
leader is one who upholds his followers first and in doing so helps them to succeed. When you help your target audience to
succeed, you are not only enriching your life because of your good works, you are giving back to your business.
