Great companies still struggle with knowing how to get their message across and how to focus on a value-based marketing approach. Hiring a team like McIvor Marketing can help you market your value to your target audience by focusing on your value proposition. We can achieve this with a few distinctions, a handful of examples, confidence, and initiative.
Value in marketing means customer-perceived value. It’s the element that makes people feel like they’ve won the cost-benefit trade off – that they’re getting their money’s worth.
The heart of your business model contains a fundamental priority: a commitment to delivering goods or services that your customers view as high-value. There are different ways to add value to customers, which leads to different value propositions.

Savings, Quality, Organization, Variety
Wellness, Attractiveness, Entertainment, Nostalgia
Your product or service more than likely navigates multiple customer desires, but ask yourself which one is most likely to drive sales.
Once you decide the most important value your customers see in your business, you need to back up those claims. Any of these forms of proof show a customer that your business actually offers that promised value:
Though each form of proof affects different channels and unique selling points, prioritize those that fit best with your business’s value proposition.
