What is a value proposition?


Definition of a Value Proposition

A Value Proposition is a commitment to the potential product consumers of the worth of the product. The definition encompasses the needs, benefits, advantages, conveniences, functionality, and any other marketable aspects of the product. Further to this, the proposition might also demonstrate how the product is superior to its rivals.

Why use a value proposition?

A robust and transparent proposition enables more effective communication with all interested parties. These parties can be stakeholders, developers, end-users, salespeople, and anyone in-between. A well-composed proposition withstands all inquiries and provides a focus for all individuals regardless of their role.

General FAQ

What is a value proposition example?
We see and read value propositions all the time. For example, VPs are presented on product landing pages; a business communication tool promises to make workers’ lives easier, unify teams, and create a fun environment for sharing ideas. Here, the VP makes the product’s value clear and helps prospects recognize why this brand presents a better solution than its competitors.
How do you write a value proposition?
The first step is to identify your product’s core benefits, and then describe why they offer value to the buyer/user. Next, draw on market research to determine the ideal buyer’s/user’s pain point(s). Think about how your product’s value will solve their problems. Finally, create a brief pitch that helps you stand out from competitors based on your product’s unique value.
How do you define the value proposition?
Essentially, a value proposition is a value that a business is promising to provide buyers and/or users when they start using the product. It’s a concise, catchy pitch that breaks the fundamental values of an item down so that customers can see why it’s the right option for them.
What is another example of a value proposition?
A value proposition is a catchy way of engaging potential customers, by explaining how a product, brand or service will benefit them. Uber’s VP is simple, attractive, but really sums up what the app is all about: "The smartest way to get around".
