Why is it an invaluable personal and business strategy to be head-over-heels in love with your most formidable business competitors? What can your competitors tell you about you, your business, and your overall business strategy? What is it that you must learn and implement relative to gaining and sustaining your distinct competitive advantage? What is that you can do, starting right now, to drive your business (no matter the industry) straight toward increased market share so that your business can generate higher profits? That is our focus on this edition of, “The Strategist Radio LIVE."
How many times have you been in a selling situation where the customer's sole focus was on price?
Anytime your customers can't tell the difference between your product or service and your competitor's product or service, the customer will buy based on price. You must be able to differentiate your company, your product, your quality, your service, and yourself if you want the customer to stop focusing on price and start seeing you as a partner, and not just as a supplier. You've got to show him how you are different.
I've traveled around the country giving keynote speeches the past 22 years, I've been so amazed to find how many salespeople do not know and cannot articulate their competitive advantage to their prospects and customers!
How can they expect their prospects and customers to give them their time and attention when they cannot tell them in a concise way what they can do for them that no one else can do?
Companies or sales reps who don't understand their competitive advantage say things like, "Our product is better quality" or "Our service is better."
On this episode of The Hut with hosts Patrick Shore & Jodi Livengood, you'll hear a slightly different view on what competitive advantage really is and what it really means to your business. The truth is it's getting tougher and tougher to compete and you need to learn how to determine what your competitive advantage statements are and how to capitalize on them.
Pat and Jodi will outline the four competitive advantage strategies and which one or the combination of ones you will need to use to achieve your desired level of success.
