How to Use a Messaging Matrix Template

Creating a messaging matrix is an important part of any successful marketing strategy, and there are a few steps you can take to ensure you create a matrix that will help you reach your goals. Here's how to get started:

1. Brainstorm key messaging points

Start by brainstorming the key messages you want to communicate to your audience. This should include the overall goal of your messaging, as well as specific points you want to emphasize.

Use a Whiteboard in ClickUp to list your key messages and use sticky notes to further break them down.

2. Identify target audiences

Once you have your key messages, identify the target audiences for each message. This could include different customer segments, geographic locations, or even specific media outlets.

Create custom fields in ClickUp to track each target audience.

3. Develop content

Now that you have identified your key messages and target audiences, you can start developing content that will be used to communicate these messages. This could include blog posts, videos, graphics, or even press releases.

Use tasks in ClickUp to assign individual pieces of content to specific team members.

4. Create the matrix

Now, it’s time to create the messaging matrix. Use a spreadsheet program or other suitable software to create the matrix. Start by entering the names of each audience segment, along with any relevant details like their role and current contact information.

Use the Table view in ClickUp to build your own customized spreadsheet and messaging matrix.

5. Fill in the matrix

Once the matrix is complete, start filling it in with the content you’ve developed. Start by adding the key messages and then assign the content pieces to each segment.

Create custom fields in ClickUp to track each key message and content piece.

6. Review and update

Once your messaging matrix is complete, review the data regularly to ensure that all information is up-to-date and accurate. When changes occur, make sure to update the document accordingly so as not to miss out on any important details.

Set a recurring task in ClickUp to regularly review and update your messaging matrix.
