Avoid “vendor speak” where you use words like innovative, seamless, robust, disruptive, or patented. These are not words a customer would use to describe your product.
Innovative, Robust, Seamless, Disruptive, and Patented
I am always puzzled when companies use adjectives like:
in their product descriptions, brochures, datasheets, website, marketing and sales decks, videos, trade show booth signage, presentations, etc…
These are not adjectives that are on a prospect’s “nice to have” checklist, much less their “should have” or “must have” lists.
These are adjectives that marketeers use to characterize a technology. Sprinkling these and other “buzzword bingo” adjectives all over your messaging will do nothing either to attract prospects or to convince them to buy.
Describe the problems that your prospects face in plain English using words that they use.
Describe the benefits that your offering will provide the same way.
