Why we’re going to love your unique selling proposition

by | Aug 11, 2023 | Services

Have you ever spent time on Amazon trying to distinguish the differences between a dozen products that look similar, and promise to do pretty much the same thing? Marketing your features and benefits is essential, but your unique selling proposition could easily be what sets you apart from your competitors.

Our best-selling book, “The CEO’s Guide to Marketing,” defines Unique Selling Proposition (USP) as, “the unique reason why your product is different and better than others.” It could provide you with leverage in the marketplace.

Here are a couple really good examples: Domino’s Pizza’s 30-minute delivery guarantee helped it stay top-of-mind in the crowded pizza delivery category. FedEx distinguished itself by being the first delivery service to guarantee overnight package delivery.

Your unique selling proposition may be your price, location, quality and/or ingredients/materials. It could be your sustainable packaging or processes. It may even be your industry leadership and expertise. We love clients’ USPs because they are fun to promote!

Embedding your USP in buyers’ minds

To educate buyers about your USP, we suggest using an integrated marketing approach. We use a number of ways to help clients teach prospective buyers about their products. This includes websites, publicity, digital advertising, videos, newsletters, social media and influencer marketing.

Our comprehensive strategy is to deliver your message in all the places where it is most likely to be seen by the people who are highly motivated to buy your product.

Working with us is easy. We have clients with monthly budgets as little as $2000, and ones spending as much as $100,000 a month. You can hire our agency by signing a 12-month agreement, with an out at 6 months if you are not satisfied.
