About This Course

Published 7/2013 English

Course Description

Being good at what you do professionally, and being good at selling what you do – usually requires two completely different skills sets.

And one of the first steps to selling your products or services really effectively is knowing – and being able to communicate succinctly and confidently – what you can offer a potential customer which differentiates you from anyone else.

This is sometimes called “an elevator speech” – the idea being that you can deliver this statement within the average 20-30 second elevator ride. 

Most people call it a CVP or Customer Value Proposition.  We think there’s a better name – your Compelling Value Proposition.  The customer piece is obvious – indeed who else would you be demonstrating your value to?  But compelling has a deeper meaning – it’s about your belief in what you do for your customer.
