Creating a Compelling Reason to Buy for Your Business in Brevard County FL
What Is a Compelling Reason to Buy?
A compelling reason to buy is not an elevator pitch (although it should be) …
Sales thinks of an elevator pitch as explaining what the product does, whereas
a compelling reason to buy explains the benefit that the target audience will
realize with your product. And, as the name implies, it is a more compelling
way to capture interest.
The concepts behind a compelling reason to buy can be learned or taught as the
Business Coach I am. I have simplified the concepts to create an easy exercise that
I use with clients … It could be startups that need great beginning “set the tone”
messaging, to the Small Business Owner that lost their focus. The concepts ensure
that any messaging created will help capture the attention of the target audience.
Why You Need it
Without a compelling reason to buy, a potential buyer tries to make sense of what
your product does and how it can help solve their problems. In our busy world, that
may take too much work and will often result in missed opportunities because the
prospect does not have the time or the right information to connect the dots.
You need to do the work for them in most cases and make it crystal clear
how your solution can make a positive impact on their day-to-day life.
For most businesses, it’s a matter of putting themselves in the shoes of the buyer,
figuring out their burning problems, and matching up their solution to how it solves
those pains. For some startups, this is a much more critical exercise in determining
if your product can sell. You cannot make a business a success if your solution is a
“nice to have.” If you are a startup founder, make sure there is a compelling reason
to buy that matches a burning pain that makes your target or ideal audience act.
More Than One Compelling Reason?
If yours is a Small Business, one compelling reason to buy will likely be your narrow
focus. But a larger company may have multiple target buyers and compelling reasons
to buy for each product line. The key here is to use only those compelling reasons to
buy that are compelling. Test them with Sales and prospects to make sure they lead
to opportunities before using them for go-to-market messaging.
Come on Business Owners, or your Marketing Consultant
you hire (if it’s not me), let’s get Compelling!
As Marketing Consultants or Business Coaches, our goal is to create compelling
content that captures the attention of target buyers and helps move them to purchase.
The compelling reason to buy is a great foundation for content because it keeps you
focused on your target audience, their pains, and the ways you bring them value. That
is what they care about. Unless you are in an established big-name business, prospects
are not looking for you. So, you need to get out front and let them know how you can
ease their burdens.
I promise this process works! I’ve used it with almost all my B2B clients (and so have
the top Business Coaches and Marketing Experts worldwide), either to get their
Marketing Strategies started or to reject working with them because they lacked a
compelling reason to buy (or didn’t want to take advice or change for the betterment
of their revenue, profits and future) …
Because, let’s face it, content shouldn’t be created unless it can drive revenue …
So, take some time to find your compelling reason(s) to buy, then create
that incredibly effective content … Or, of course, hire someone that can!
