  • Don’t optimize offers or websites — optimize thought-sequences — by gauging the perception of value-force and value-cost


  1. You have to do something fundamentally different
  2. Limit internal arrogance at the leadership level derived from ignoring consumers
  3. Limit the all-in risk — focus on small discoveries that compound

Actionable Steps:

  1. Try to see through the lense of the consumer
  2. Employ the consumer mindset — understand their thought-sequence
  3. Speak in their vernacular — ineffective communication proves to be costly


  • Clarity trumps persuasion — once you can articulate the value with clarity — you will get an answer in return.

Value Proposition:

  • Focus on developing a clear value-proposition — with an emphasis on the consumer and channel of communication.
