Without a strong value proposition, it’s much harder to sell your products or services intoday’s economy, much less even get in the door of big companies. But whatexactly is a value proposition? And how is it different from other commonly usedterms?A value proposition is often confused with an “elevator speech” or a “unique sellingproposition.” It’s essential to understand the difference between these termsbecause their purposes and sales impact are very different.An elevator speech is a short, 1-2 sentence statement that defines who you work with (target market) and the general area in which you help them. About 10 secondslong, it’s used primarily at networking events to attract potential clients and stimulatediscussion. The following elevator speeches show you how some people describewhat they do:
I work with small businesses who are struggling to sell their products or services intolarge corporate accounts.
We help technology companies effectively use their customer information todrive repeat sales.
I help small-to-medium sized manufacturing companies who have difficulties withunpredictable revenue streams.An elevator speech is the foundation of a value proposition without the specifics thatare needed to sell into the corporate market.A unique selling proposition (USP) is a statement about what makes you and your company different from other vendors. Its primary value is to create competitivedifferentiation. A USP is often used in marketing materials or in talking with customerswho are ready to buy.Here are a few good USP examples:
We specialize in working with financial institutions. (specialty)
We guarantee service in 4 hours or your money back. (guarantee)
We use a unique tool called SureFire! to analyze your critical needs. (methodology)
