How To Be Truly Unique In Your Market (And Make The Competition Irrelevant)

buyer utility Jul 01, 2018

How does a business engineer uniqueness which, at the end of the day, ensures that prospects in your market see you as ‘the’ choice…vs ‘a’ choice.

The secret lies in the ‘Utility’ (or usefulness) in what you deliver to the marketplace.

And there are really only two things you need to do, to figure out where you can innovate / tweak to find that (oh so lucrative) wide open market space.

FIRST: Figure Out What Your Competition Lacks (and Your Customers Want)

In the customer development template we give to our clients, we include 5 things to ask your prospective customers to help triangulate where the opportunities are:

1) The Result They’re After (The Core Of Your Value Proposition)

Want to figure out exactly why your product or service isn’t selling as much as it should?

Ever work with clients that kinda felt like things were just more laborious than they needed to be? You’re not alone. We’ve had several clients that, when they came to us, were struggling to say ‘no’ to certain clients who they may have suspected weren’t quite a fit. They were taking anybody that had a checkbook. So in looking at their sales and marketing process, and inevitably what their product really delivers, we quickly identified that not only were they taking some ‘bad apples’, they were actually attracting the wrong clients.

Therefore, the problem is that you have a great solution, your product delivers true value to people, but it gives the appearance that it doesn’t; and the reason being is that you’re actually working with the wrong people. It is vital that both the solution and the client are really aligned.
