Simpler is better
Apple’s products have always been made look simple, elegant, and classy. Not only their looks but also advertisement has been kept with simple commercials. Advertising copy focuses on the benefits the customer will get from their features and not so much on explaining their technical side. Go through your strategy and project plan, ask yourself: Is my product or service made look way more complicated than it should be? If so, work on simplifying it, making it way easier to comprehend for your end customer.
Give experience to your customers
Weather your website, product, or service it all should be a pleasurable experience to your end customer. Apple is one of the first ever companies to sell not only a product but an experience. The customer service, the packaging, the feeling of the product, the launching it all should be about the exclusive experience.
Tone of voice
You should be very careful when choosing the tone of voice to communicate with your end customers. Weather it will be more formal or casual, Apple decided to stick to a simpler language- the one of the average laptops and mobile prone user. You should use a language that your customers understand, this way they will feel you get them and it’s not only about you but them.
Think outside the box

Apple’s ability to think outside of the box made them successful despite the competitors. They changed history forever with their advertisement, with their pitch and overall market presence.
Chose the revolutionary way of doing business and you will not fail, you might have your struggles and down moments but success comes to the people who dare to dream big and do not give up.
