PHASE 14: PRODUCT MARKETING SUPPORT

Translate user requirements into product value that resonates with buyers

 

Product managers speak the language of product features and functionality. This resonates with users as they are motivated by what a product will do to make them more efficient and effective. However, this same language does not resonate with buyers. A buyer needs to understand things such as the value of a product, the ROI, and a product’s differentiators. Great product marketing translates features and functionality of a product into value propositions and competitive advantages that drive a consistent message that resonates with buyers. This value messaging is leveraged in marketing campaigns and sales enablement tools and translates to successful launches and revenue growth.
