Grab Your Consumers Attention in a Cluttered World of Marketing Communications
A cluttered world of marketing communications diminishes the ordinary. The consumer can no longer be bother with the dull, trite and a boring hodgepodge of marketing communications that are pandered in front of them every day. They simply haven't the time, nor are they willing to figure out what irrelevant messages warmed over with pseudo-showmanship the marketer is selling them.
Originality is demanded by the consumer in order to grab their attention long enough for them to react and hopefully take some positive action. The secret ingredient that can eventually make or break your product or service offering is a communication strategy that identifies with what the consumer wants.
Your marketing communication message has to respond to real consumer needs. A brilliant marketing communication that will provide confidence and solve the consumers' problems will build loyalty and sells. The power in your marketing comes from the words and visuals that are presented in a way to inspire and influence action on the part of the consumer.
Here are five ways to improve your marketing communication strategy:
1. Stamp out pompous, boring, lack-luster words that say nothing.
2. Developed your selling message to represent a specific problem solving idea for the consumer.
3. Dramatize the big promise of what your product or service offers.
4. Your message should be a creative enough to surprise the consumer and crack through their acrylic shield of boredom.
5. Avoid a selling idea or marketing communication that focuses on Price. Price is a temporary position only to be knocked-off by imitators. Deliver competitive benefits over price.
