Why every business needs a good Marketing Message

What does your business do? That’s a question you get asked a lot. Potential customers, investors, employees, your friends and family, they will all ask you that same question.

Your answer will influence whether you will make a sale, acquire a new investment or hire great talent. When it’s asked, what do you answer?

If you’d like to have a clear and concise way to explain your business that creates interest, you need a good marketing message.

What is a Marketing Message?

Marketing messages are 1 or 2 sentences that explain the value of your company to your target group. You can also create specific marketing messages for products or industries.

Good marketing messages always consist out of 4 parts. First, they state the customer group and its problem. This will directly grab the attention of anyone who is listening or reading. Secondly, they state the way you solve this problem. This could be your product or solution. Finally it describes the successful situation of your customer once you solved their problem.

To summarise the perfect marketing message explains:

    1. The customer groups you’re helping with your solution
    2. The problem you have a solution for
    3. The solution you have for the problem
    4. The positive result of your solution
