Competing on Value

key in lock.jpg

Your customers will only make strategic investments if there are compelling reasons. Not all customers value your services in the same way. And yet, many companies service all their customers in the same way, stretching scarce resources, reducing profits and missing an opportunity to increase customer satisfaction.

To sustain and grow profits, companies need to understand what customer's value, and then create plans to deliver it consistently. Also, companies need to motivate and manage their staff to add value to their processes by only delivering what the customers value.

You must connect with your client's business needs and the decision maker's perception of value because decision makers decide on price and value. This means you need a clear value proposition that connects to the needs of your customers.

This workshop will build a value proposition for different industries and accounts. Specifically, working on how to compete with numerous large and small, and traditional and non-traditional competitors.

Value for decision makers is how a product or service delivers results for them. To add value, a service must do at least one of four things: create opportunities, eliminate problems, reduce costs or raise revenue.

In this workshop, participants will define a value proposition - a concise statement identifying the financial value your company can deliver to your customers. Also, we will use persuasion research to create a more powerful value proposition for customers. This workshop moves beyond product and service benefits to business results.

The key here is to understand that a value proposition is not merely a product or service; it includes the entire customer experience.
