Messaging

When you boil it down, every organization wants to make sure their salespeople hit their quota. And it’s the messaging element—what your marketers and salespeople say, do, and write in order to create perceived customer value—that wins or loses the deal.

Your sales and marketing strategy needs to focus on articulating value in your customer conversations to be effective. These skillfully delivered messages are what creates a distinctive purchase experience, creates value for your buyers, and separates your company from the competition.

If your revenue team can’t communicate value—why your solution is different, better, and worth more—your strategy won’t help you get more sales.

Unfortunately, almost two-thirds of sales and marketing leaders see no need to differentiate their messages for different moments in the customer journey. They simply use the same approach, regardless of the situation or the customer relationship.

Research proves, however, that your buyers’ needs and motivations change with the situation. Depending on where they are in their decision-making process, your buyers need different information and a different approach. A one-size-fits-all message won’t cut it—you need to tailor your messages to match the specific buyer psychology within each moment.

For example, challenging your prospects to change their status quo and choose you might be effective when talking to new prospects. But that’s exactly the wrong approach for renewal and upsell conversations with existing customers.
