Attraction Wins 1: Standing Out and Showcasing Your Value Proposition

July 8, 2024

Every attraction has something special to offer, but how well are you communicating that to your potential visitors? 

A compelling value proposition is essential for converting casual browsers into enthusiastic customers. It’s not just about listing features; it’s about clearly articulating why your attraction is the best choice, delivers a great experience and is worth the money.

Here’s a quick guide to showcasing your value proposition effectively.

Common Mistakes to Avoid

  1. Vagueness: If your value proposition isn’t clear, visitors won’t understand why they should choose your attraction over others. Avoid generic statements that don’t highlight specific benefits
  2. Hidden Value: Burying your value proposition in hard-to-find places on your website can be detrimental. Often, homepages focus too much on seasonal events and miss the chance to highlight what makes the attraction unique, either through copy, imagery or video.
  3. Complexity: Using jargon or overly complex language can confuse visitors. Your message should be simple and straightforward.  Use plenty of images and videos if your experience isn’t something they’ll already be familiar with.
  4. Misalignment: Your value proposition should meet the expectations and needs of your target audience. If there's a disconnect, you’ll lose potential customers so make sure you have relevant content on your homepage and key landing pages.

LIFT Model Recommendations

To enhance your value proposition, consider using the LIFT model, which focuses on six key factors: Value, Clarity, Relevance, Urgency, Distraction, and Anxiety.

  • Value Proposition: Emphasise what makes your attraction unique. Do you offer exclusive experiences? Highlight them.
  • Clarity: Ensure your message is easy to find and understand. Use plain language and avoid jargon.
  • Relevance: Tailor your message to resonate with different segments of your audience. Personalised content can significantly boost engagement.

Next Steps to Enhance Your Value Proposition

  1. Evaluate and Refine: Regularly assess your value proposition for clarity and impact. Compare it with competitors to ensure you stand out.
  2. Feedback and Testing: Collect feedback from visitors and conduct A/B testing to refine your message. Understanding what works and what doesn’t can significantly improve your conversion rates.
  3. Update Regularly: Keep your value proposition aligned with new offerings or changes in visitor preferences. Regular updates ensure that your message stays relevant and compelling.

Detailed Breakdown

1. Value Proposition: Your Unique Selling Point

Your value proposition should answer the fundamental question: Why should visitors choose your attraction? Focus on what makes your offering unique. Here are some tips:

  • Highlight Unique Experiences: Whether it’s an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour or a seasonal event, make sure these experiences are front and centre on your website.
  • Showcase Testimonials: User-generated content, such as reviews and testimonials, can add credibility to your value proposition.
  • What’s included: make sure you can clear signposts to show everything that’s included at various ticket levels, particularly if you include things that other brands charge extra for.

2. Relevance: Tailoring the Message

Different audiences may find different aspects of your attraction appealing. Use personalised pages to address these diverse interests:

  • Tailored planning info: how big is your venue, how long would a visit take, what’s on offer, and how suitable is each activity or area for different age groups?  
  • Family-Friendly: Create a page dedicated to family activities and amenities.
  • Adventure Seekers: Highlight thrilling experiences and unique challenges for those looking for adventure.
  • Relevant upsells: Ensure you are upselling and cross-selling to higher value products throughout the website and customer journey to improve your revenue and deliver unique experiences for your guests.
  • Educational Groups: Emphasise educational tours and learning opportunities for school groups and educational institutions.

3. Clarity: Simplicity is Key

Avoid industry jargon and keep your language simple. Your goal is to make sure anyone visiting your site immediately understands what you offer. Some strategies include:

  • Easy to get help: Make sure you have comprehensive help centre and FAQ content so that you minimise customer confusion and customer services enquiries.
  • Bullet Points: Use bullet points to break down key benefits.
  • Visual Aids: Infographics and images can help convey your message quickly and effectively.

4. Urgency: Prompting Immediate Action

Creating a sense of urgency can drive quicker decision-making. Limited-time offers and special discounts are effective tactics:

  • Countdown Timers: Add countdown timers to highlight limited-time deals.
  • Exclusive Offers: Promote exclusive online discounts to encourage immediate bookings.
  • Seasonal events: Create simple trails and custom seasonal events and promotions to keep content fresh and drive repeat visitors.
  • Limited stock / availability: Add availability-limited upsells or premium offerings to make them more exclusive and drive urgency for customers to book.

5. Minimising Distractions: Focus on Conversion

Your homepage should guide visitors towards taking action without overwhelming them:

  • Clean Design: A clean, uncluttered design helps visitors focus on the most important information.
  • Clear CTAs: Ensure that your calls to action are prominent and easy to follow.
  • Social proof: add testimonials and reviews to build trust and help convince guests to book or visit.

6. Feedback and Continuous Improvement

Collecting and acting on visitor feedback is crucial:

  • Surveys and Polls: Use tools like Hotjar to run heatmaps and gather feedback on the visitor experience.
  • Team feedback loops: Ensure you are regularly looking at your web journey on mobile and loop your team in to quick weekly feedback meetings to document improvement ideas to test.
  • A/B Testing: Regularly test different versions of your pages to see which ones perform best.


A well-crafted value proposition is your ticket to standing out in a crowded market. By clearly articulating what makes your attraction or venue unique, you can convert more visitors and boost your revenue. 

Remember to keep your message clear, relevant, and up-to-date, and don’t forget to keep collecting customer and team feedback to continually refine your approach.
