This one is the 7 of Hearts from the Selling Value card deck.
It is true, value propositions really are awesome.
Marketing teams, companies, sit around to try to figure out, what’s the value proposition of this product? And it turns out that we can often come up with something that’s pretty good, pretty general, it essentially is the solution to a problem that most people have, and we think of that as the value proposition.
But the thing is, the value proposition isn’t specific enough. Anytime you go to an individual customer, or an individual buyer, they’ve got different problems. Maybe our value proposition caught their attention, got them to come talk to us.
“Value proposition isn’t specific enough. Anytime you go to an individual customer, or an individual buyer, they’ve got different problems.”

But in the end, we need to understand, what are the specific problems that that buyer has? What’s the result that that buyer’s looking to achieve? And then help them figure out, what’s the business case for that? How much value, or additional profit, will they make because they’re solving those specific problems?
So, I love value propositions. They’re just not magic words that are enough to get people to buy.
