PHASE 11: VALUE MESSAGING

Maximize wallet share and drive up the customer’s willingness-to-pay by market segment with compelling messaging.

 

Communicating value to buyers is critical to capturing market value. You may know you are better than your competitors. Your competitors may even know it. But if your customers don’t, they won’t pay more for your product. To get the price premium that your differentiation commands, you need to reinforce that positioning through value messaging in all your communication touch points with the buyer.
