  • Hi there! I’m Jill Konrath. I write and speak about fresh sales strategies that actually work in our fast-paced business environment. Today’s crazy-busy prospects delete you in a nanosecond if your message doesn’t grab their attention. They also stay with the status quo as long as possible because changing just adds more work to their already over-flowing schedule. That’s why value propositions are so important. Strong ones pique curiosity and get customers to take action. Weak ones are the root cause of most sales failure. I hope you get lots of good ideas from this presentation!

Crafting Strong Value Propositions Crafting Strong Value Propositions Presentation Transcript

  • Crafting PowerfulValue Propositions JILL KONRATH Author | Speaker | Strategist
  • Jill Konrath
  • If you don’t have a strong, customer-enticing valueproposition, it’s tough to sell.
  • But whatexactly isa valueproposition?
  • Lots of people think that a valueproposition is information about their company, product or service.
  • That’sboring!
  • A value proposition is also not aglowing description of your uniqueservices, passion for excellence or leading-edge technology.
  • That’s ayawner too!
  • A value propositionis a clear statementabout the outcomesthat an individual oran organization canrealize from usingyour product,service or solution.
  • The key word isOUTCOMES!
  • So let me ask you this:Have you talked to your clientsabout the results they get when using your offering? You need to! What you learn will help you sell.
  • Of course, youdon’t have to.But withoutknowing theseoutcomes, you’llhave a hardtime setting upmeetings.
  • Because strongvalue propositionsjolt your prospectsout of theircomplacency withthe status quo.
  • And they piqueyour prospect’scuriosity aboutwhat’s possible.
  • Which is importantbecause this is yourbiggest competitor.
  • Especially since making any change is more work for youralready stressed out prospect.
  • You haveto give thema really goodreason totake action.
  • So what makesa value propositionpowerful & effective?The best ones includethese 3 components: • Business driver • Movement • Metrics
  • A business driver is related toan important objective that your prospects are measured on.
  • Here are some examples…• Profitability • Quality• Turnaround time • Returns• Cost of goods sold • Reviews• • Turnover Productivity • New clients• Speed to market • Costs• Revenue• Customer satisfaction
  • But don’t say, “We canreduce cost” or “We can increase your sales.” Your prospects haveheard that a million times… so you lose credibility.
  • Worst of all, itmakes you look like anotherproduct-pushing peddler.
  • The best business drivers are very specific.
  • Instead of using broad terms like“sales” in your value proposition,use more specific terms such as:• Sales velocity• Sales conversion rates• Call-to-appointment ratios• High quality leads• Sales per customer• Sales of more profitable products
  • See theDifference?Being specific makesyou stand out fromyour competitors.And, you sound likeyou can make a realimpact in an area thatyour prospects areconcerned about.
  • Value Propositions Have Movement Too
  • Because people onlychange if a new option isbetter than the status quoand can positively impacttheir key business drivers.
  • “Movement” words like thesebelong in value propositions:Eliminate Speed Up RaiseMinimize Decrease Cut Shrink Increase Maximize
  • Strong Value Propositions Have Metrics TooDollars/Euros Time frames Percentages
  • And the bestmetrics are alsovery specific.To your prospects,19.7% is muchmore believablethan 20%.
  • Ready for some examples?
  • Typical Value PropositionWe create high quality, affordablewebsites for companies who dobusiness online. Web Marketing Firm
  • …and your prospectsdelete you in a nanosecond.

  • Prospects who hear thesestronger value propositions say, Ooh. That’s interesting. I’d like to learn more.
  • Which is exactly whatyou want them to say!
  • Their curiosity is piqued. They’re interested in whatyou can do for them. And, you’vecreated a fresh, new opportunity.
