PHASE 12: PRODUCT MARKETING

Translate product features into value messaging that resonates with Buyers.

 

Product features and technical functionality are critical in designing products. However, these do not always motivate Buyers to purchase a product. Buyers want to understand the unique value a product will provide, and what the Return on Investment (ROI) will be. Great product marketing translates features and functionality into value propositions and competitive advantages that resonate with Buyers. This value messaging is leveraged in marketing campaigns and sales enablement tools and translates to successful launches and revenue growth.
