Remember the children’s game, telephone? The message starts at one end of a line, is passed from ear to ear, and comes out as a totally different message at the end. That can happen to your marketing if you don’t start with – and maintain – clear messaging in every promotional channel you use. Checkerboard crafts websites that make our clients’ key messages clear to potential buyers. Then we build in ways to easily deliver those messages to customers and prospects through social media, emails and digital advertising.
When Checkerboard builds a website, we spend a lot of time talking with our clients about their products’ key messages. Our goal is to present them, visually as well as verbally, to consumers in ways that positively frame the primary value points. Good web design communicates with web visitors through words, images, color, layout, functionality and other key elements.
This is called encoding, and it takes into account not only who’s sending the messages, but also the channel and the consumers who will receive them.
The receiver has to decode the message to make sense of it. The receiver’s own beliefs and expectations can affect his or her understanding of your message. When planning marketing communications, it is vital to consider how the audience may decode each message.
Different markets may decode the same message in different ways, just as a 60-year-old consumer may interpret the word ‘vitality’ differently than a 20-something. We take that into account as we build each website.
