of a product, from marketing, packaging,
sales & distribution strategies, pricing,

it can.

Effectiveness
Too many ads promising benefits that aren’t
delivered -- creating increasing skepticism.

Internet is proliferating this feeling among


consumers. Many think that the internet is a
scam waiting to happen.

Market fragmentation.
The Age of the
Self Reliant Consumer
Less reliant on others
opinions and
recommendations.
Wants benefits, not
features. Stressed for
time.

Tired of “data overload”.


Wants just enough
information to make an
informed decision and
get on with life.
What Does It Mean?

To strike it rich,
you have to offer
consumers real,
meaningful benefits
that can
make your brand
stand out from the
crowd to be:

2nd Law of
Gravitational Marketing
REAL REASON TO BELIEVE –
You must convince the consumer of the
benefit and explain how you are going
to deliver it (the reason-to-believe).

Must use “Kitchen Logic”


3rd Law of
Gravitational Marketing
DRAMATIC DIFFERENCE – The only
way to disrupt marketplace equilibrium
is to introduce a benefit-and-reason-to-
believe combination significantly
different from what already exists.
Creating A Unique
Brand Identity

Exploit that benefit to create a


differentiation in the mind of the

NO PRODUCT NAME!

WHAT IS IT?
Common Marketing
Problems
Talk about features, not benefits

Fail to Differentiate

Fail to communicate in Kitchen Logic

Don’t understand the difference between WISHES,


WANTS & NEEDS.
Common Factors
for Success
NEW & DIFFERENT!

Address a consumer need BETTER than


anything else out there.

Communicate it clearly.
BRAND IT WITH A GREAT NAME!

Demonstrate the benefit with a sound reason


why.
Don’t Rely On Low-Price
As Your Point of
Differentiation
Any fool can cut prices. Consumers don’t buy
the lowest price, they buy the most benefits
for the dollar!

The customers you attract with “low price” will


leave you in a heartbeat when they find the
next deal.

Does not build a long-term customer base.


Find A
Point of Difference
This is the key to long-term growth, building
a brand name and image.

Communicate this point of difference in


EVERYTHING you do.

Different, Better & Special.


Fun is Fundamental!
