Dedicated to Discovering How People Make Choices
Marketers have to consider many elements when crafting their value proposition, but perhaps the two most important are appeal and exclusivity. Providing clarity around these two elements allows customers to easily answer the question, “Why should I buy from you rather than from anyone else?”
For ideas on improving the appeal and exclusivity communicated in your marketing collateral, watch this video replay of the January 2016 MECLABS Live Optimization Webinar, where MECLABS Institute optimization specialists provided real-time feedback on audience-submitted webpages.
There are two elements that impact the force of a value proposition. There’s appeal, and there’s exclusivity. You have to have both.
— Austin McCraw, Senior Director, Content Production, MECLABS Institute
A powerful and effective value proposition has two components: appeal and exclusivity. The appeal of your offer or services makes customers say, "I want this," and exclusivity means they can only get it from you.
Where these two components meet is your “only-factor.” Marketers can improve their messaging efforts by communicating the “only-factor,” or the value your company and product or service provides that customers can’t get elsewhere.
Highlighting this appealing and exclusive aspect of your offer in your value proposition and messaging illustrates why prospective customers should buy from you, rather than any of your competitors.
