The clear winner is the landing page, which was selected by 64% of respondents. Email marketing campaigns (51%) were also rated as a highly effective tool for testing value proposition — perhaps slightly more complex than a landing page test, yet still a viable solution.
Whereas a landing page can be changed quickly to collect new data, once a single email campaign is sent out, no further changes can be made. The same can be said about offline advertising, such as direct mail or print advertising, which was selected by just 16% of respondents.
Points to consider
Does your company clearly state its value proposition in all its marketing channels? Which areas have most helped you define and develop your value propositions? Have you faced challenges in successfully communicating value proposition through more "permanent" mediums, such as email or offline advertising?
