    Our consumers dont fully understand our product

    Our product is too expensive - lets lower the price

    To consumers, our product looks like other, cheaper products

    Our product gets good reviews but only geeks seem to buy it

    Consumers can't see the cool stuff inside the product

    Our product has no media budget, so its going to fail

    Speeds, feeds and tech specs - how do I communicate all of it?

    Our product isnt selling because it is complicated

    Our product is destined to be mediocre even though its cool

  • Innovations and their benefits are what allow brands to sell products at higher price points.

    The key word is sell.

    As a marketer you must justify your position and price.

    You must sell the value to your consumer. Otherwise, you look like every product on the shelf.

    #2 The best stories are entertaining and emotional. Tell your innovation story in a way that captures the heart of your audience. Use of visuals, music and motion will keep your audience engaged while learning about your product.

    #3 Make the story easy to communicate on different mediums including digital, social, print and in store. Short videos and animations are great formats that can be used in many places. Creating a story that only works in a long form video is difficult to communicate in retail, for instance.

    #4 Ultimately, its not the product itself thats inspiring. Its what the customer is planning to do with it. Thats the story. Glenn Condradt, VP Global Marketing at CoreMedia. Focus on what the product can do for your consumer.
