One of the main activities of a marketing department is to communicate with customers, in particular sending them messages that will move them towards purchase. Here is a useful collection of the underlying messages that a marketer might want to send.

 Brief messages

Here, very briefly, are most of the basic marketing messages that, even more briefly, say 'we're a good company who sell wonderful products that are just what you need.'

  • We are: nice, trustworthy, caring, friendly, expert, reliable, easy to contact, understanding
  • We will: care, listen, help
  • Our products: are reliable, are inexpensive, solve your problems, will make you feel/look good, are delivered quickly
  • Competitor products are: lower quality, more expensive
  • Other people: like us, like our products, recommend them, are just like you
  • You can: contact us, get information, try out the product
  • You will: feel good, be liked, be successful
  • It's: easy, quick, cheap, useful

Longer messages

Here are fuller messages, though still 'honest' as opposed to the words and pictures used in the final spin. The expand and extend the brief messages above, saying what the marketer really means.

  • We understand you and your problems, so come to us and all your problems will go away
  • We are nice people, the sort you like as friends, so please treat us like a friend
  • We care about you, and will look after you
