Simplify! – Create a marketing strategy that IS the message

By John Jantsch

People tend to get things that can be boiled down to a really simple message.

Buy this – get that. Hire us – Become famous.

One of the most effective ways to create marketing that achieves this simple character is to come up with a marketing strategy that becomes your core marketing difference and core marketing message.

Here’s what I mean:

Strategy – Grow by referrals
Message – Send us 5 customers and we will refund 100% of your purchase.

So this business becomes the 100% refund folks. The marketing strategy is to build the business by way of referral and everything they do from a marketing standpoint is to pump out the 100% refund message.

So what strategy could you embrace that would allow you to create an offer that is so compelling…you become known for it?
