Check the Benefits
I once ran across a product sheet for a riding lawn mower that was addressed to the dealer. It touted the mower's aftermarket need for parts and maintenance, a key benefit to the retailer. That was fine, but the product sheet was displayed next to the mower as customer literature. As a potential buyer, I thought, Huh? Lots of parts and maintenance? I think I'll take that mower over there.
