“Make the HEART of this people fat, and make their EARS heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their EYES, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed” Isa 6:10
“For this people’s HEART is waxed gross, and their EARS are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them” Mat 13:15
There are three dimensions of marketing: FrontDoor Marketing, BackDoor Marketing, and Supernatural Marketing. Much of what is known and practiced in the marketplace is FrontDoor Marketing! Very little is known of BackDoor Marketing and much less is known of Supernatural Marketing! In marketing generally, the “Eyes,” “Ears,” and “Heart,” of potential customers are the major targets of all marketing efforts!
These three targets hold the key to prosperity and lack for businesses and their products and/or services in the marketplace! If these three important targets of your potential customers are closed against your products and/or services, you and your business will suffer neglect, lack, insignificance, and poverty in the marketplace! Conversely, if these three targets are opened in favour of your products and/or services, you and your business will enjoy unprecedented patronage, abundance, significance, and prosperity!
Satan has a mandate to close the “Eyes,” “Ears,” and “Heart,” of potential customers/clients in the marketplace against your business, products and/or services because you are a Christian doing business in the marketplace! This explains why many Christians struggle with business in the marketplace! Supernatural Marketing seeks to help Christians doing business in the marketplace to overcome this siege of the devil.
Why The Ears, Eyes & Heart Of Your Potential Customer Is So Important!
There are six fundamental reasons why the Ears, Eyes & Heart Of Your Potential Customer Is So Important!
Let’s check them out!
The first purpose of marketing is “Visibility.” Marketing makes your product or service perceptible or noticeable to the eyes, ears, and mind of your targeted client or customer, depending on the medium you employ. The eyes and ears are gates to the “Mind” of man. The more people see or hear about your product or service, the more it is ingrained into their mind until it is deep-rooted. Because your product or service is a seed at this initial stage of marketing, it soon begins to germinate when your marketing efforts is sustained.
If an organization sustains its marketing effort, before long, it would bear fruit. Take note, human response rate differ according to their personality. The reserved (introverts) ones are laggards, they are naturally inclined to foot-dragging. In contrast, the outgoing ones (extroverts) are naturally inclined to respond first to your marketing effort.
The above reasoning presupposes that if you do not embark on a sustained, focused, and targeted marketing, the public will be oblivious of your product and services and that could translates into eventual stagnation or collapse of your business.
Visibility of your product or service in the mind of your targeted customer over time creates a consciousness or awareness in the “Heart” of your targeted customers when sustained and spirited marketing is the watchword. Remember, conviction takes place in the heart. Until the customer is convinced in his or her heart to accept your product and service, there will not be patronage and repeated buying, which is the goal of every entrepreneur.
When you emphasis the unique value proposition or unique selling point of your product or service long enough through sustained marketing, your target group will understand its usefulness and this is how a market buzz and frenzy is created.
When the public are persuaded in their heart that your product or service is the first and best choice, they’ll respond voluntarily and positively to your organization’s offerings and that is what eventually attract your clients to you, when he or she have “Genuine” need of your product or service.
When your product or service is projected strong enough in the minds of your target customers through sustained marketing; it gets ingrained in their minds! After sometime, because the product or service remains constantly in focus, he begins to believe the benefits of the product or service is real. It won’t take long before he receives a suggestion from his mind to give the product or service a try.
Unconsciously, the customer has accepted the product or service because of the conviction in his mind that the product or service is worth giving it a try. Now, at this point, if the product or service is worth its salt, when the customer gives a try, he is convinced that the product or service is worth it. When the customer makes another effort to patronize the product or service again, he will be hooked because in the mouth of two or three witness, every product is established in the heart of the customer!
