Get to message-market fit

Your message/market fit is determined by how appealing the messaging sounds to the customer. There is no better way to find out how your messaging is landing than to check with them directly.

Product-market fit can't exist without message-market fit

Messaging is a key part of building any great company.

Defining your company’s strategic advantage through messaging is more important than ever as we're reaching near saturation in most categories.

Three levels of message-market fit you must achieve to win your market.

The best messaging captures all 3 levels:

1. Value. What's in it for the user? Which problem do you solve?2. Unique value. What's the value only you can deliver? What's your onlyness?
3. Point of view. What do you believe? What are your values?

If you don't pay close attention to message-market fit, and driving through the 3 levels of message-market fit, your growth will stall despite having a product that might fit the market.  


Black Rifle Coffee sells coffee beans. A commodity. Yes the beans are great (Level 1), but so are everyone else's. The most powerful bit of their messaging is their point of view that also creates the uniqueness: they're pro-gun, pro-military, pro-cop. And pro-Trump: being divisive is a sign of a strong brand.

Patagonia sells outdoor clothing (Level 1). Their point of view is about sustainability, fighting the climate crisis, the need to protect the planet. This comes with condmening policies and politicians (like Trump) that act against this.

What is message-market fit?

You get message-market fit when the the value and uniqueness of your brand hits home with your target audience.

Your messaging resonates when it joins the conversation already happening in your customer's head.

It's kind of like falling in love - you just know when it’s happened. You'll know this by the way people react to your pitch - they nod their heads, they say "tell me more", they open up.

The right messaging creates demand

It’s difficult to quantify the impact of bad messaging. And it’s also difficult to present any accurate ROI for implementing or changing the approach of how you talk about your product.

In order to find sufficient demand in the market, you must find an effective approach to communicate your product’s value.

The right messaging makes everything easier. It attracts the right people to your product. People who get it right away and don't haggle the price.

When you land on messaging that just 'clicks' with your best-fit customers, your ads will work so much better and your ad spend will go much further.

When you nail your messaging, your marketing will become significantly more effective.

Your messaging is doing the heavy lifting of convincing the customers that you are the right solution for them.
