  • Four simple ways to discover your unique selling


    When you start working on your branding, one of the

    first things you need to determine is your USP (Unique

    Selling Proposition). You want to know what your

    clients like about the experience of working with you.

    What results have they gotten? What did they like

    most? What makes the biggest difference for them?

    Make sure you dont ask clients what they like about

    you. Its never about you. Its always about the

    experience they receive from you.

    There are a number of ways to gather this information about your business. You could:

    1. Schedule appointments for a phone conversation with select clients

    2. Ask them to fill out a questionnaire while they are at your place of business. But dont let

    them take it home because they probably never will complete it or send it back

    3. Invite a group to lunch, your treat, and have an open discussion

    4. Send a link to an online survey. This works best for a more conservative business versus a

    touchy-feely business. It would be too cold for a warmer type of business

    Some people tend to make things complicated which can prevent you from doing this work.

    You dont need to hire a research firm or do a focus group so someone else is asking the

    questions. Thats good when you have a multi-million dollar business, but for most

    entrepreneurs, feel free to do this fact finding yourself. Simply ask your clients.

    Naturally youll want to choose your best clients who are making progress and getting a lot

    out of your work together. You can learn a lot about what you are doing well and even discover

    opportunities for your next step. You may be surprised by the information you collect and this

    process can be eye-opening. It can also bring items to your attention that need improvement

    which is a good thing knowing what you need to do is so much better than being in the dark.

  • Once you figure out your USP, establishing your brand will become so much simpler. Youll

    know the type of people you serve best, what their issues and needs are and how to give them

    what they want. All of that will make your marketing efforts easier.
