  • 2. “Cows, after you’ve seen them for a while, are boring. They may be perfect cows, attractive cows, cows with great personalities, cows lit by beautiful light, but they’re still boring. A Purple Cow, though. Now that would be interesting…. remarkable. SETH GODIN, PURPLE COW Image shared by Nicholas A. Tonelli via Creative Commons license.

  • 12. LET’S DO AN EXERCISE The following slides will walk through seven mini-exercises to help develop your Unique Selling Proposition.
  • 13. #1 WHAT ’ S YOUR PASSION? What do you Google when you aren’t researching a specific task? i.e. What blogs and topics do you visit and re-visit based on raw curiosity? What’s your guilty pleasure when you have a few extra minutes during the day? i.e. After the email is done and you have 15 minutes before a call, what are you thinking about? What is one compliment that makes you proud? i.e. If someone tells you that you are a great mentor in the business, is that especially meaningful? Example: I’m fascinated by Gen Y. I research them, speak at conferences, and study their behavior—because it interests me. BACKPORCHVISTA.COM | @ BACKPORCHVISTA
  • 14. #2 WHAT DO YOUR CLIENTS VALUE ABOUT YOU? Ever have a referral? Why did they choose you? i.e. When asked, do they tell you that they “really liked” how you provided their friend a financial planning guide? What if they don’t value you? Are they doing you a favor because they “owe you one?” Not every client should be. Take a look at whether you are really providing value and whether you want to build your business around that type of client. Example: My clients tell others that I frequently share new ideas with them. BACKPORCHVISTA.COM | @ BACKPORCHVISTA
  • 15. #3 - HOW ARE YOU UNIQUELY SKILLED? Do you have unique subject-matter knowledge? i.e. Do you specialize in a particular area of financial services? Do you have insight into a particular audience/group? i.e. Perhaps a family member provides exposure to an audience in need. Does your background provide insight into a particular clientele? i.e. Maybe you were an engineer before entering the business. Do you speak another language? Example: My dad was an FBI agent, and I grew up around law enforcement. BACKPORCHVISTA.COM | @ BACKPORCHVISTA
  • 16. #4 - THE TWITTER TEST Twitter bios are limited to 160 characters. Many professionals have become adept at cramming broad descriptions into that narrow window. Let's try it. Take the items from steps 1-2-3 and write a sentence combining all of those items. Try writing 10-20 variations. Example: "Jeremy is a font of fresh investment ideas for Gen Y policemen and women." BACKPORCHVISTA.COM | @ BACKPORCHVISTA
  • 17. #5 THE “WHY” TEST? 1. Ask yourself: Why is that how I want to be known? Then: Write down your answer. Now: REPEAT 5x 2. Ask yourself: Why am I uniquely qualified? Then: Write down your answer. Now: REPEAT 5x BACKPORCHVISTA.COM | @ BACKPORCHVISTA
  • 18. #6 THE SPOUSE TEST When you’re not around, how does your spouse describe your career? (Consider asking!) How would you like for your spouse to describe you? What would you change? BACKPORCHVISTA.COM | @ BACKPORCHVISTA
