Creating Competitive Advantage

Jaynie L Smith

Think you know your company’s competitive advantage? Think again.

Why should I do business with you … and not your competitor?

Whether you are a retailer, manufacturer, distributor, or service provider – if you cannot effectively answer this question, you may be missing the opportunity to maximize your potential customer base, client retention and margins.

bookThe five fatal flaws of most companies:
• They don’t have a competitive advantage but think they do.
• They have a competitive advantage but don’t know what it is – so they lower prices instead.
• They know what their competitive advantage is but neglect to consistently and effectively tell clients and prospects.
• 
They mistake “strengths” for competitive advantages.
• 
They don’t concentrate on competitive advantages when making strategic and operational decisions.

Creating Competitive Advantage reveals that identifying and touting competitive advantages – based on your customer’s perspective – is statistically proven to help your company’s marketing and sales teams close more deals, at higher margins, and stay miles ahead of the competition.
