This presentation delivered at Boston Product Camp in May 2010 takes a look at (1) some best practices around creating compelling value propositions (2) a v.p. audit tool so you can evaluate yours, and (3) examples of value propositions and how they relate to (and can be reinforced) through taglines, brand essence, and business operations.

  22. 22. TAKEAWAYS • A value proposition is the proposed contract; how a company executes across functions is the manifestation (or not!) of that contract. • Multiple value propositions are necessary, depending on who you need to influence, convince, and pay the bills. • A one size fits all message fails to optimize interest for any stakeholder. • A clear value proposition will streamline costs and time on sales and marketing endeavors. • Building and executing on a compelling value proposition is a combination of strategic planning and tactical execution. • A solid value proposition drives the tagline and establishes the foundation for your brand.
