How to Make Your Business Stand Out from the Crowd

Unless you’ve come out with an invention the likes of which the world has never seen, your business is going to run into some competition. Just how saturated your market is depends on your chosen industry. However, by understanding your business, your customers, and your competitors, you can devise a strategy that will make your business stand out from the crowd take things to the next level.

Know Your Customers

Your customers are the driving force of your business. If they disappear, it’s over. You can learn a lot by examining your list of current clients. Pay close attention to what services are most often requested and the reasons why they keep coming back to you instead of taking their business elsewhere. Is it the convenience of your location that they find attractive? Is it the extra effort that you invest in customer service? Don’t be afraid to ask your regulars what it is that they appreciate about working with you. Of course, if you’re too shy to ask directly, customer surveys can work too. Either way, their input is vital for making your business stand out against the competition.

Know Your “Ideal Customer”

Another great strategy is to create a “persona” of your ideal customer. This is a technique for getting into the mindset of your clients by creating a detailed profile about an imaginary one. Consider their profession, their hobbies, their lifestyle, even their age – anything and everything that would motivate them to want your product or service. It might sound like creating your own Dungeons and Dragons character, but you’ll need to think like them if you want to really “Wow!” them and win them over.

Know Your Competition

Study your competition as closely as you study your customers. Identify any weaknesses or shortcomings that you can use to your advantage. Of course, you’ll also need to evaluate their strengths and strategies are for making their own business unique and appealing. Examining the differences between yourself and your rivals can help you devise new marketing and growth strategies that will help make your business stand out.

Know What Makes Your Business Unique (And Use It!)

Your next step is to identify your Unique Selling Point (USP). Your USP is the key element in separating yourself from an ocean of competition. It should consist of a few sentences describing in great detail what you do, why and how you do it, your customer base, as well as any other relevant factors. The ability to clearly communicate to your customers about what makes your business unique makes customers feel much more at ease with spending their money at your location.
