I bought this as a follow-up to a MGMA class I attended at which the author was the presenter. The book was almost better than the presentation. It really drives home the need to listen to what your customers are saying and the importance of using language they understand - not just what you think they're saying. It also takes the guess work out of creating marketing communication messages. Sales managers the concept of developing a common message make this a MUST READ for new and experience sales people!

Customer Message Management is an excellent resource for Marketing Communications professionals who are striving to truly deliver valuable tools to the sales organization. The approach outlined in the book is highly collaborative with the sales organization and other key stakeholders, engaging them in the process throughout which helps ensure the end deliverables are on target. The book provides a logical method for developing key messages as well as identifying the types of sales tools needed and effective deployment of those tools to the sales force. The authors promote a customer-focused, value-selling approach instead of the common features-and-benefits, vendor-centric focus.

The best part about this book is that it doesn't just talk about what a marketer should do, it tells you how to do it. The overall methodology proposed is logical and solid, although it is somewhat complex, so taking the overall principles and simplifying the process and customizing it for your organization may be a better approach.

Once you have completed your customer message maps, it's like having the answer to all the tests in your hands. The maps serve as the foundation for every customer touchpoint - brochures, websites, advertisements, sales scripts, sales training, ... When you get that last-minute request for a presentation, you won't ever have to start from scratch - you'll already know exactly what to say (and not say) based on your audience. While undertaking a message mapping initiative requires a significant amount of time by several people, in the end it will save you copious amounts of time and - better yet - will ensure that all of your communications are integrated and on-message.

Format: Hardcover
This book presents sound principles for how marketing can better help sales in communications with customers. The detailed activity lists will be useful in putting a customer messaging program into action. However, the processes proposed by the authors are overly complicated and may be impractical for many marketing departments to implement. The book would also be more useful if it included attributed, real-life examples and results.
