You may hear the term “value proposition” tossed around in business and marketing circles, but what is one? What do you do with it? And how do you write a good one? A value proposition is a positioning statement that explains the benefit you provide for your target buyer and how you do so uniquely well. In other words, it explains why prospects should choose you over your competitors and how working with you will benefit them.
When a business states that they “provide exceptional service” do you think people actually believe this? It is like saying, “trust me” or “the check is in the mail.” Empty statements void of facts are a waste of words today.
