Messaging

What is our offering? Who is it for? What problem does it solve – or what opportunity does it create? What are the alternatives to our offering? And how is ours different and better?

All too often, technology companies rush past these and other basic – but crucially important – questions. Without clear and concise answers to these questions, it is much more difficult to develop effective marketing materials and programs.

Anyone you try to reach has two mental lists: a “to-do list” and a “wish list.” If you’re not addressing something on one of those lists soon after you have the person’s attention, you are not going to be successful.

Davis excels in helping you discover, or re-discover, your vision, the key concepts that resonate with customers and other audiences, and the most memorable and effective ways to communicate those ideas.
