Sample extract from our Marketing 101 course (Topic - Plan E-Marketing Communications)

Develop a value proposition for e-marketing strategy or plan

What is a value proposition? A value proposition is a marketing statement that summarises why a customer should buy your product or service. This value proposition is critical if you want to start the journey of transforming your idea and you should use this statement to target the customers that will benefit most from your product or service. It should be concise, yet specific and appeal to your customers’ strongest decision-making drivers. You need to develop a value proposition as part of your e-marketing plan.

Your value proposition should:

• Describe target buyer

• Identify the problem that you solve

• Explain how you are better than the alternatives

• Convince customers

• Explain what benefit you provide

• Describe how you do this well

Your value proposition may include:

• Benefits a company can derive from using electronic commerce

• Benefits a company’s products or services provide to customers

• Consumer need that is being fulfilled

The steps of a value proposition

Your value proposition can be created step-by-step, by answering a selection of questions. Using these answers, you should aim to be able to answer the question, “Why should I buy this specific product?”

There are five steps needed to develop your value proposition, including:

1. Know your customer

2. Know your product

3. Know your competitors

4. Distil the customer-oriented proposition

5. Pull it all together

1. Know your customer

You need to understand your customer. Ask yourself:

• Who are they?

• What do they need?

• What problems do they need to solve?

• What do they value?

• What improvements do they look for?

2. Know your product

From your customer’s perspective, ask yourself:

• How does your product solve the problem?

• How does your product offer an improvement?

• What value and hard results does it offer your customer?

3. Know your competitors

Thinking from your customer’s perspective, think about how your product creates more value than the competing ones.

4. Distil the customer-oriented proposition

From the customer’s viewpoint, answer: ‘why should I buy this specific product or idea?’ Complete the following sentences:
• The things I value most about the product are...

• I want to buy this product because it will...

• It is better than the competing products because...

5. Pull it all together Turn the answer from step four into your value proposition statement.
