The Art of Writing One-Sentence Product Descriptions
Dave Bailey wanted to know why some one-sentence descriptions sound like genius ideas while others flop. As he researched how successful founders presented their products before they were well-known, he discovered something interesting: viral products tend to have a ‘lead feature’. Something that can be described in one sentence.
Mark Zuckerberg describing Facebook, when they started: ‘Something where you can type someone’s name and find out a bunch of information about them.’
Travis Kalanick describing Uber, in 2011: ‘You push a button and in five minutes a Mercedes picks you up and takes you where you want to go.’
Facebook and Uber have many features, yet Mark and Travis elevate a single feature above the others, making the product easy to understand, easy to remember, and, most importantly, easy to talk about.
It’s easy to mistake a one-line description as just another communications tactic. However, crafting this sentence is one of the most strategic decisions a founder can make. If you want your product to be shared by word of mouth, then you must accept that it will likely pass from person to person as a single sentence.
