Why should you work with Sleepy Dog Media? No BS.

Nancy Roblewsky

Why should you work with Sleepy Dog Media? No BS.

When I’m in the market to make a purchase, I dislike it when people use a bunch of marketing lingo or I visit a website filled with so many corporate buzzwords that I can’t figure out what they do.   This is why we instituted a strict “No BS” rule at Sleepy Dog.

After all, if someone can’t explain a concept, product or service using plain language then they probably don’t understand it themselves.  It’s a good bet they have simply memorized their spiel hoping to impress you with a barrage of big words. 

No buzzwords allowed

People won’t buy unless they understand how your product or service solves their problem.  Using buzzwords and techno babble they don’t understand does not help.  Our goal is simple. Describe our process and services using everyday words, so you understand what you’re buying. 

By asking a few questions at the beginning of our conversation, I learn your knowledge level and tailor my response to fit it.  It saves time and is a win-win for everyone.  After all, there’s no sense explaining things you already know though I’ll gladly go into detail as needed. 

Keeping it real

We won’t tell you “just anything” to make the sale.  I’m sure you’ve dealt with a salesperson who made all kinds of promises to get you to sign on the dotted line only to have those results never materialize.  How did that feel? Not good, right?

That’s just bad business.  We don’t like it when someone does it to us and so, we’re not going to do it to another person.  We simply follow the golden rule “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” 

No magic pill

I confess, I’d probably make more sales if I would tell people what they wanted to hear.  Instead, I tell them what they NEED to hear.  There’s no magic pill that doubles your business overnight. That doesn’t mean we can’t help you, we certainly can.  

However, we choose to be realistic about your results.  For example, it does no good to say you’ll instantly double your sales as you’ll only be disappointed and upset when it doesn’t happen.  Understandably, you’ll have a hard time trusting anything else we say (and rightly so).

Trust is essential  

It’s vital that you (clients) trust us and that doesn’t happen if we start out by lying to you.  Being truthful from the beginning is the only way to build a strong foundation, which is key in developing a lasting relationship.

Most of our clients have been with us for a LONG time.  Why is that? They know we’re always straight with them and they appreciate it.  You see, the longer we work with you, the better we know your products/services and the more effective we are at getting the results you want.

In addition, we promise to provide the best solution, not the one that makes us the most money. We’re in it for the long haul and doing what’s best for our clients is always our priority.

Some of this may sound a little corny, but if you’re looking for a company that “tells it like it is” and talks to you in language you understand, then give us a call.
