The Ed Sheeran effect

Unless you’ve been under a rock, it’s hard not have seen or heard one of the two new songs from hitmaker Ed Sheeran.

Ed’s currently on a promotional tour of Australia and it appears to be doing great things for him, with his two newly released songs placed at one and two on the ARIA charts

So, what lesson can we take from Ed?

Well, there’s many but the one I’d like to focus on today is that simplicity wins, always.

Ed takes to stage, television and radio studios with just a guitar and that sublime voice of his. Now, that is a skill in itself there’s no taking away from that.

But there’s no bells and whistles, just as there shouldn’t be when it comes to promoting your business.

Simple messages, without fluff will always stand a better chance of cut-through than those with unnecessary words.
