What’s your #Customer #Avatar? How to #Differenciate your #Product?

Do your #competitors have a product like yours or vice versa?

Similar products are everywhere due to #globalization.

How do you #differentiate yourself from everyone else?

Tell a story about your product. If people understand your story and product, if this story touches them, they will want to connect with you, with your company and buy from you.

People connect with stories, with emotions. If not, your company is just one more like many others and nothing happens, everything seems very cold and without interest. Almost all are shown in the same way, appear in the same places and move in the same way.

Then you should focus on your unique product sale proposal - the USP - Unique Selling Product.

Turn your sale into an experience for your customers. This will transform your product into a #Unique #Product.

This will set you apart from your competitors.

The phenomenon called #"surfing in the sea of sameness" has been on the agenda for a long time and most companies still do not know how to deal with it or it kills the neurons of its founders and teams trying to find miraculous solutions to be different ones of others.

It is a double issue:

- it's better to be Different?

- or be Better than your competitors?

Good question!

Being both is very difficult. You have to be better or you have to be different.

Both are rare!

Then choose the positioning of your product on the market.

The aim is to always obtain more #market #share than others.

Differentiation today is everything in the business world.

For this reason, companies must carry out a #competitive #audit.

Are we followers or are we innovators?

This is an essential job. You should study your competitors, not exactly to imitate them, much less to copy, but to understand what the flaws of your product are, being similar, and where you should improve and make the most of what your product has better than others. And, if you don't, maybe you should give up that product, or create a new one, innovate it ... A good way to do this study is through the BCG Matrix.

“The #BCG #Matrix , created by Bruce Henderson in the '70s at Boston consulting Group is fundamental in this analysis and can help you a lot in a 4 quadrant perspective. This model is a growth matrix of a product-type, i.e. 2x2=4, through the representation of a Dog, a Cow of Milk, an Interrogation Point and finally a Star product. Sometimes it hаѕ оthеr representations.
