You know you have a great product or service. You know exactly what sets you apart from your competitors. And you know that if your audience knows those details, you’ll win their business and their loyalty.
The problem is, you don’t know how to say it, show it, or share it.
A successful marketing strategy begins with knowing your message, and figuring out the right way to share that message. It’s easy to say “we’re the best.” But that doesn’t set you apart from the thousands of other businesses that claim the same title.
It reminds me of one of my favorite scenes in the Will Ferrell movie, “Elf.” The wide-eyed and naïve Buddy explores the wonders and scenery of New York City. As he journeys, he stops by a hole-in-the-wall coffee shop. In the window hangs a neon sign, reading, “World’s Best Cup of Coffee.” Buddy’s eyes light up, and he enters the shop with excitement.
“You did it! Congraulations! ‘World’s best cup of coffee.’ Great job everyone.”
Of course it wasn’t the world’s best cup of coffee, but for that shop, and tens of thousands of others, they claimed to have the “world’s best.”
Simply saying you’re the best isn’t enough. You need a unique message that encompasses who you are, what you offer, and why you truly are different than the rest.
Marketing and brand strategies are changing. Where companies used to look primarily at traditional media (print, TV, radio) to deliver their message, today you must start from the web. Your web presence is the new hub for all marketing initiatives. Traditional media still has its place, but now rather than being the core, they are avenues by which to draw your audience back to your website.
Social media has also become a growing part of a company’s marketing strategy. Having a presence on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube plugs you into the modern-day word-of-mouth.
At Media Marketers, we have a team of marketing consultants who are ready to help you find your message, and to determine the right way to take advantage of all media in order to get your message to the masses.
Not only will we help you figure out how to say it, but how to show it as well. Your message is part of your overall brand strategy, and you need to have a consistent look and feel that matches your logo, your message, and the attitude and atmosphere you wish to convey to your audience.
