2. The three elements of an effective sales message
Most sales messages make print companies sound pretty much the same as the competition. To attract the serious attention of a buyer, your sales message must have three elements: target audience, pain and difference. We'll go through this message structure in detail. You will build a sales message for your company based on these principles.
3. How to attract a list of prospects that want to speak to you
