In Branding, “Distilling The Message” Is The Name of the Game – Part 2

Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants

n Part 2 of this Article series, a case study in “distilling the marketing message”, we will elaborate on the importance of knowing your target market. Your marketing message needs to speak succinctly to the specific needs of your ideal clients.




        "Regain Your Balance, Strength & Youthful Flexibility...
                         Enjoy An Active Life!" - VISHĀL

Vishāl is a Licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist, a Certified Yoga Instructor, and a Massage Therapist.  As a yoga practitioner, an avid cyclist, surfer, tennis player, dancer, and acrobat he realized early on that an active lifestyle was a top priority for him.




Active people are accustomed to feeling lively, energetic, vigorous and full of life. They strive to thrive, to maintain their vitality, to prosper; they expect to enjoy a long life.




Vishāl understands that it is particularly frustrating for people on the go when they are slowed down, sidelined or otherwise impeded by pain or other medical conditions that diminish the quality of their lives. He also understands that by developing and sustaining a balance between work and play one can create the foundation for a long and happy life. For this reason Vishāl dedicated his career to empowering his patients and students to cultivate their own version of wellness so that they can enjoy an active and fulfilling life.


To be even more precise, we defined Vishāl’s target market as active people who would appreciate a PERSONALIZED wellness program that was designed expressly for “me”. Thus, our primary marketing message was distilled to this:


Combining Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine with Therapeutic Yoga & Massage Vishāl Offers Personalized Wellness Programs for ACTIVE PEOPLE Like You.


In Part 3 of this article series, we will demonstrate the most important aspect of distilling the marketing message: Amplifying the Extraordinary Promise of Value. See if you can guess how we did this by visiting Vishāl’s website:

ABOUT:  Luxury Real Estate is a high stakes game. Commissions are substantial! We help luxury real estate professionals get to the listing table more often and win listings more frequently.  If you want to be the market leader, the personal or company brand that your target market thinks of first and refers most often, you need an Elevator Statement to accelerate the process.  We can get you there!

Your Elevator Statement is a succinct and persuasive summary of your extraordinary promise of value, your unique selling proposition.  In a time-starved world the attention span of your target market is shrinking.  To instantly convey what sets you apart from the crowd you need to be able to answer EACH ONE of these 3 questions in less than 30 seconds.: 1) What Do You Do?; 2)  How Do You Do It?, and;  3) How Are You Different?.  Can you state how you are different and better than your competition in under 30 seconds?

Watch the video above to see and hear how we do it.

James Dray we all have our preferences when it comes to exercise.  Famous heart surgeon, Dr. Oz, recommends it for all his patients and practices it himself.  The best way to explain it is that it keeps you limber, as it exercises all the body parts.  It also keeps your mind clear.  We have tried all the various practices, and we eventually come back to yoga. One of the men in our class is 86, and he feels it has improved his golf swing as well as his stamina.   A

Good morning, Alexandra and Ron -- I did check the website.  In addition to being visually appealing, it shows me there is a clear focus on the health of the individual.   Whether it be one aspect, a combination of efforts or a unique blending of different approaches to achieve the goal.  All centered on the individual.   Looking forward to part 3.

I kept staring at that first photo and thinking to myself that while in total awe over the fact a person could actually do that, it's not a pose that I will most likely ever learn how to do. Not on my bucket list. Impressed that he can do it, though.

I'm thrilled to hear that his business is thriving with your help. That is wonderful news as we both are 100% supportive of non-pharmaceutical solutions to pain and injuries. Active people can't afford to be out of the game - it has an impact on our overall quality of life and state of mind.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel you have given us very clear visualization of how to brand our business in a way that is understood by our target audience.

The photos tell a great story and now I feel like I know Vishal and his concept of Wellness.

Well done!
