Let’s face it: there are many other businesses out there just like yours. There are countless other people who offer the same exact product or service. Many of them probably target the same market. That’s not a reflection of you or the quality of your business, it’s just the way it is. There are a lot of people in the world and, as Mark Twain once said, “There are no new ideas. It’s impossible.” So, how do you stand out from the crowd? How do you make people notice you? Easy! Your value proposition: it’s how you communicate to your audience that your company and your products are better than the rest.
What is a Value Proposition?Value proposition is Marketing 101. If you’ve ever written a business plan, you’re likely already familiar with the term. But just in case: A value proposition is an innovation, service or feature intended to make a company more attractive to customers. It’s what you can do that the competitors can’t. And if you can perfect your value proposition, you can increase your conversion rate and turn more leads into sales.
How to Create a Unique Value PropositionSo, how do you write a value proposition that’s solid enough to increase conversions and lift sales? Before we get into that, let’s talk about what a value proposition is not: it’s not a slogan, a logo, or an advertising campaign. A value proposition goes much deeper than that: it’s a promise to your customers. As such, it should:
- Be clear and easy to understand
- Communicate specific results the customer will get
- Explain how it’s different and better than other options
Using Your Website to Communicate Value PropositionThe most beautiful, well-designed website in the world won’t do you any good if it doesn’t communicate your value proposition. After all, when visitors arrive on your website, their first question is likely, “Why should I do business with you?” In order to turn those visitors into leads, sales, and referrals, you need to clearly and consistently communicate your value proposition on your website (and everywhere you have an online presence). That includes customizing everything from navigation and web pages, to your contact page and blog posts. Your website should be absolutely saturated with your message.
