Your value proposition to recognize what your company is unique in the market and meets a real need for its customers. It sounds like a declaration of intent, even if it is present specifically on the reason for your business achieve tangible results. Its goal is to win the client interest and motivate employees. It should be clear in all marketing communications (brochures, advertisements, exhibitions, shows, website, etc.) and should be strengthened by its corporate culture.

A task is the core value that your company offers sales and now you want to discover. As difficult as it is, try to stay away from benefits because their competitors have the same list. Not all advertised products as innovative, simpler, faster, more profitable? Just like in a way that customers increasingly buy from you distinguish encouraged.

Its main competitor could use the exchange technology is developed to provide a product or a service.

There is a new trend in all segments of their clientele? If you do not know what customers think, you need to do this research! In turn, the core competencies into values. This is the hardest part! Use the language of their customers and define their core competencies as values.
Studies of the competition. Choose only three or four competitors in the industry and look at the language they use to promote your business and your products. Determine your value proposition, and if you can defend (with proprietary technology, patents, market share, etc.) to believe. In a chart, a map of its core competencies in terms of their differentiation or similarity obvious.
Define the vision of society. When the 3 companies or 5 years, 10 years? The value proposition should be the long-term strategy.

3) We can quantify the value for your customers?
If the desired results more quickly in the market segment to another, do not be afraid of them as the first group. E ‘as well as for companies who want to attack everything at once. If the value is high, it is likely that apply to a broader market over time.
Last but not least, to be proactive. Go watch the competition and listen to their customers. If he can not defend their value proposition, it is time to change or begin to stay on top.
