Communities and organizations are often frustrated by prospects who want to “commoditize” their offerings. However, at times, these organizations help create this challenge by simply communicating features and benefits. Today, prospects want a human connection with the brand they choose to engage with. This makes it critical for marketers to clearly articulate their organization’s unique “reasons to buy” and connect them to its “reason for existing”… because, “People don’t buy WHAT you do, they buy WHY you do it” (Simon Sinek). Through examples and case studies, this session will explore how linking an organization’s WHAT and HOW to its WHY can emotionally connect with prospects to drive engagement. Join marketing strategist, Dan Gartlan, in learning how to uncover your competitive advantages and your organization’s core values or reason for being. Then, explore how to craft messaging that drives an emotional connection with prospects. Furthermore, the session will define the process that you can do with your team for discovering and articulating your organization’s WHY and how to connect your competitive advances to it in a way that makes you stand out. This session is delivered as a presentation, with key areas of discussion and hands-on, workshop-type activities each designed to increase learning and retention.
