Succinctly describing your message and mission to your potential customers creates a strong advantage.
Whether your messaging resonates with your audience or not will have a massive impact on the success of your funnel, and that's why...
It's critical to get your "messaging" right.
This post will help you get clarity on your messaging after you've done your market research.
A unique value proposition is one of the most important elements of your messaging because it is what differentiates you from everyone else in your market. What makes your offer unique from other similar products/services? While remaining customer-centric, brainstorm to reveal what’s unique about your brand and offer that should inspire people to buy from you instead of a competitor.
Formulating a distinct business promise is a must. After you've done your market research, it should be relatively easy to come up with a promise that would make your customers take action.
Brand positioning helps educate customers on what you (your brand) wants to help them achieve and how your product will add value to their lives. Brand positioning is closely tied with the unique value proposition, so, as you think about these elements of your brand messaging, again – put yourself in the shoes of your ideal customer.
Illustrate the values you share with your target audience, as well as, understanding & empathy for their pain points.
Once you’ve got a good handle on your brand positioning, brand promise, and mission statement, boil them down to a few values that your brand shares with the target audience. You’ll want to uphold these values throughout the entire buyer’s journey from attracting new visitors to delighting customers into brand advocates.
Tone matters and there are several sources that will help you hone in on the tone your messaging needs to convey to your audience. The tone needs to support the brand message, not compete with it, or contradict it. You don’t want to scare off buyers with too much industry jargon, or an approach that feels masculine when your ideal customers are women.
Collect genuine testimonials. Invite people to leave a comment or a review, and highlight case studies.
Online reviews, testimonials, case studies, and examples speaking to how your product/service helped someone solve a problem are powerful and supportive tools for your brand messaging.
Set aside some time dedicated to thinking deeply and answering these questions. It will be time well spent because it will define all your communication with your audience… blog posts, articles, emails, sales letters, videos, social media posts, ads, etc.
That will make it easier for you to create your content, and it will ensure that your message connects with the people you’re trying to reach.
