Busting a Myth: Messaging is all about Selling

Ever feel like your marketing messages are getting crickets? You churn out content, launch campaigns, but that loyal following and brand advocacy you crave just isn't happening?


The underlying issue might be a common misconception: that messaging is solely about pushing products or services. While sales are certainly a dream, focusing solely on them creates a one-sided conversation. Here's why it's time to ditch the “sell, sell, sell” mentality and embrace a more holistic approach.


The Problem: The Selling Shout

Imagine walking into a party and immediately launching into a product pitch. Not exactly the recipe for an engaging conversation, right? The same goes for your messaging. When you bombard your audience with features and benefits, you risk alienating them and coming across as inauthentic.


The Solution: Building Trust Through Meaningful Messaging

Effective messaging goes beyond the “what” (your service) and taps into the “why.” People connect with brands that share their values, understand their needs, and make them feel something. This is where building trust and emotional connections comes in.


How to Craft Messages that Resonate


Here's a shift in perspective for service-based businesses:

  • Focus on Values: What core principles drive your business? Think: Airbnb. This hospitality platform champions community and cultural exchange through its messaging. They showcase stories of unique travel experiences and connections made between hosts and guests, attracting customers who value authenticity and adventure over traditional hotels.


In your messaging, clearly communicate what your business stands for beyond just the service itself.  Are you passionate about sustainability?  Do you prioritize diversity and inclusion in your workplace?  Showcase these values and attract clients who share your vision.


  • Connect Emotionally: Tell stories, highlight the human side of your brand, and evoke positive emotions. Think of Doctors Without Borders. This medical relief organization doesn't just provide healthcare; they tell stories of resilience and hope in the face of crisis. Their messaging focuses on the human cost of conflict and poverty, creating an emotional connection with potential donors and volunteers around the world.


For your service-based business, consider sharing client testimonials or success stories in multiple languages to reach a wider audience.  Showcase the positive impact you have on your clients' lives.  People connect with real stories, so leverage them to build trust and emotional connections.


  • Prioritize Problem-Solving: Position yourself as an expert who understands customer challenges. Take Hilton's “Be Kind” campaign as an example. This hotel chain's messaging focuses on the importance of creating a welcoming and inclusive environment for all guests. They highlight initiatives that address common travel anxieties (like lost luggage or room service delays) and showcase their commitment to exceptional customer service.


In your messaging, identify the specific challenges your ideal client faces and position yourself as the solution. Offer valuable content, like blog posts or webinars in different languages, that address these challenges and demonstrate your expertise.  By establishing yourself as a trusted resource on a global scale, you'll be well on your way to attracting new clients worldwide.
