Positioning: How to Cut Through the Noise In a Crowded Space with Kira Hug

On the show today I’m welcoming back my good friend and brilliant copywriter, Kira Hug. Kira was a guest back on Episode 136 of this podcast, where we talked about 3 steps to writing good copy.  

I asked her to come back on the show here because a few months ago she did a presentation for the mastermind group that I’m apart of when we were in New York, and it was amazing 

Kira talked about how to position your business by using the framework of the 5 levels of market sophistication, or essentially how to cut through the noise in a crowded marketplace, as so many are today.   

You’ll hear how differentiating ourselves should be an integral part of our business strategies, yet we so often don’t focus on this. For a long time that was me, but Kira really got me thinking about this whole concept of positioning and differentiating myself to stand out. I wanted you to be thinking of how you can do this as well, and in this episode, Kira reveals just how you can do it.
