9 9 More data on this topic available from:: © 2006 MarketingSherpa, Inc. This presentation is not for distribution. Thank you. Segmentation Scheme  Technology curve and our experience led us to primary segmentation scheme with two targets:  Decision Makers (the Boss)  End Users (the Worker)

10 10 More data on this topic available from:: © 2006 MarketingSherpa, Inc. This presentation is not for distribution. Thank you. Segmentation Details  Decision-makers: Manage team who use product on a daily basis to accomplish their job. Many do not interact with product and do not keep up with product changes. Competitors are calling them often.  End-users: Use product daily, many 20+ hours per week. Interact with changes, but don’t have overall view of value product or updates brings to their business.

Target Insights  Annual customer surveys told us we were not communicating enough about product enhancements  Many clients had multi-year contracts, and did not have full understanding of increase in product benefits/value at time of renewal  Competitors all message around increased ROI  This is not a compelling differentiator

The Big Idea Work Smarter, Not Harder  Speaks to target directly, acknowledging the reality of their day-to-day life  Strokes the ego  Not “corporate-speak”  Celebrate the end-user, give the boss a way to recognize their star employees without any investment on their part

Example quotes “I refer to DFA as a “Distinctly Flexible Application” that saves me time!!!” “It is very simple. By using DFP over the last 3 years, I have saved thousands of hours for my company… We previously used another inferior product and it literally took twice the amount of time to manage and had far fewer bells and whistles. It is a godsend and helps me keep my sanity. Thank you.”
