Whether we mean to say these things or not is not the point. In the moment, it’s how other people will interpret it. Interpretation matters: forget what you think your marketing says, what does it really say to those you wish to serve?

Innovation sounds exciting, futuristic, lucrative. But without its bigger brother, it’s just a distraction.
What’s the big brother.
- Innovation without a strong message creates more distraction than progress. When we’re not clear on who we’re serving and how they need our help, we can’t innovate to their benefit. We’re as likely to go in the wrong direction as we are the right one.
- Innovation with a strong message creates progress for our company and those it exists to serve. When we’re clear on who we’re serving, and what they need to hear, all new ideas are born from a desire to serve our audience. We’re not limited to mimicking competition, but enabled to create quantum-leaps in service.
Messaging is massively underrated compared to its little brother, Innovation. But we need a clear message to stand out, sell more, and make an impact. Tools like BuiltForImpact.net–designed specifically to get messaging right–will help us unlock our messaging and innovation potential.
