Course overview

Product messaging is how we communicate a product’s value to potential customers, and is crucial to any product marketing strategy.

However, it’s very easy to get wrong.

The common misconception is that it’s about just listing the awesome features and benefits of a product.

When actually, it’s about the internal and external perception of your product, strategic guidance for sales and marketing, and laying the foundation for lucrative lead conversion through cohesive content and communication.

Messaging Certified: Masters has been designed to equip you with the tools and knowledge to address all these essential messaging aspects - and more.

Messaging isn't created in isolation. It pulls in multiple skills from multiple departments, which is why this course is created with product marketers, product managers, customer success - and more, in mind.

Built in partnership with our sister-community, Product Marketing Alliance, it covers everything you and your cross-collaborative colleagues need to excel in every area of this essential business skill.

'Another home run from SEC! This is a perfect course that explains how to do messaging in detail, with priceless input on common pitfalls. To quote Bryony, 'if you don’t take ownership over the message your product is sending, other people will.'
