Attention is the most valuable currency in marketing. The reason why people buy things is because they pay attention to it. When you’re trying to get someone’s attention, it can be difficult to do so without being too pushy or annoying them with your constant attempts at contact. In this blog post, we’ll cover 12 ways that will help gain someone’s attention and make them want what you have!
Make sure you’re giving attention to the right people. If someone doesn’t seem interested, don’t continue pursuing them! remember that everyone is busy and some people just aren’t in a position to be receptive when it comes to your idea or product.
Keep coming back again and again for more chances of success. It’s not about how often you contact somebody, but rather what kind of communication those contacts are doing with each other. People get annoyed if they think all their connections are being spammed by one person – so keep it varied! The best way to do this? Leave messages on social media like Facebook and Twitter as well as sending emails once a week or month at most (unless they’ve specifically asked for more contact).
Offer them a personal connection. If you’re writing to someone in an email, mention something about yourself that might be common ground between the two of you – this makes it seem like they know you better and are more likely to remember your message! For instance if I’m contacting somebody who’s working on graphic design: “Hi there, do you have time for another commission project?” or “I love how well those graphics turned out last time we worked together.”

How do people get your attention these days? If you’re anything like me, there are a lot of other messages vying for your attention every day. So how do people gain mine?
To get someone’s attention these days, it takes more than just sending an email or leaving them a voicemail with the hope that they’ll be reading their inbox when it pops up in their notification tab . These days we need to break through all the noise and establish contact on our terms– not theirs. Here are 12 ways to do so:
Send personalized emails instead of mass marketing ones: A personal connection is essential! If you’re writing to someone in an email, mention something about yourself that might be common ground between the two of us (this makes it seem like he knows me!)
If they don’t reply to you, wait a day and try again: There is no shame in persistence! And when I say one day, that’s really what I mean– there are people who will not answer an email for months. That said, do NOT send too many emails trying to get them to respond because it can come across as spammy. One or two at the most should suffice .
Follow up with a phone call if they still didn’t reply after your third email : This shows how serious you take their time and makes them feel like you care about reaching out personally (this also has more of an impact than just sending another generic email). Remember, make sure to verify whether this person prefers email or phone first (and do not just call them up out of the blue!).
Show you care about their needs and wants: People will be much more receptive to your requests if they feel like you genuinely have something in it for THEM. Ask questions that show you want to know what’s important to them– this is also a good way to figure out how best to pitch yourself! And don’t forget, make sure they see how what YOU offer can benefit THEM specifically.
Use social media : This might seem counterintuitive because people tend to think using too many channels at once makes things confusing but actually, when done right, it has the opposite effect. Utilizing various platforms helps showcase who you are as an individual , what you do, and why they should care in a way that is easy to digest.
Keep it simple: “Good design is not just about being pretty–it’s also about how well the site works.” Simplicity has many merits when designing something for another person; there are less chances of them getting confused or distracted by too much information. It also ensures fewer mistakes will be made on your part (leaving out important details).
Engage with their social media accounts : This can help build rapport, show you’re interested in them as an individual, and even give an early indication of whether this might be a good fit or not! Let’s say someone follows one of your boards on Pinterest but doesn’t like any
