What sets your company apart from your competitors?

Scaling a business means understanding various aspects of the company, from how to create awareness for your brand to dealing with sales, generating a customer base and so much more, all of which can be overwhelming. At the end of the day, you need to ensure that all these aspects are running effectively.

It takes a great deal of effort to convince a customer to buy from your brand and this is where the need for a Unique Selling Proposition comes into the picture. A USP is the cornerstone of every business’s core message. Developing a USP is something you absolutely must do for your business if you want to survive in today’s highly competitive marketing environment.

There are several other ways to set your company apart from your competitors:

Provide great customer service:
Teams that go above and beyond for their customers’ satisfaction and happiness make a business stand out from the crowd. Customers want to be heard and understood by the companies they support.

Addressing customer pain points:
No one knows your target customers better than you, except for maybe your competitors. Though you likely have the same target customer base as your competitors, you can leverage that knowledge and address their pain points correctly, to stay way ahead of your competitors.

Do business differently than your competitors:
Firstly, you need to analyze the way your competitors do business - their sales process, their marketing strategy, their distribution channel and then identify where there is room for improvement. These gaps are opportunities for you to differentiate yourself from your competitors.

Focus on a narrow niche:
When you focus on a niche customer base then you are aligned closely with that customer base. You can truly resonate with them and build trust. Customers can feel your credibility which can result in a bond. And if you try to appeal to several types of customers then it can create a disconnect.

Create an impactful offer and guarantee:
Regardless of what people believe, a guarantee is more than just a promise to your customer. An impactful offer and an assurance builds relationships with your customers and inspires the trust of your customers. The assurance is possibly the strongest sales tool anyone can leverage. It shows that you believe in your product.

Making your business stand out from the crowd is getting more challenging these days. It’s also becoming a necessity.

As the marketplace gets crowded, businesses need to leverage all the moving parts of their business to survive. Developing a strong, memorable brand and being a likeable company that customers want to do business with will help you create your point of difference and stand out among your competitors.
