What do you think your selected business does better than its competitors?

  • Why would customers want this product or service over the leading competitors?

Follow these five steps to determine your USP.

  1. List the features and benefits that are unique about your product or service.
    • Do a Google search and compare these features and benefits with your direct competitors. Identify the benefits that set your product apart.
  2. Decide what emotional need is being specifically met by your product or service.
    • Think about this from your customer’s perspective and add it to your list.
  3. Identify aspects of your product or service that your competitors cannot imitate.
    • Put a star beside anything that cannot be easily duplicated, reproduced, or copied.
  4. Create phrases about your unique product or service that are short, clear, and concise.
    • Use the words from steps 1–3 that you singled out. Be sure they can be easily communicated and understood by your customers.
  5. Answering your customer’s primary question, “What’s in it for me?”
    • Make it succinct and state it as a benefit to the customer.
Determining What Makes Your Brand Unique

What is the brand’s uniqueness? 

  • What makes your brand unique? What makes it stand out?
  • Why do you think this is attribute is unique?
  • Why do you think customers will want this particular uniqueness? For example, Chick-Fil-A’s customer service is unique. Most fast-food restaurants do not offer such high-quality service. Many consumers flock to Chick-Fil-A to be treated well.

What is the competitive advantage of the brand? How is it different from other competing brands?

  • What does your brand do better than its leading competitors?
  • What type of advantage do they have over the competitors? For example, when Steve Jobs invented the iPod touch technology, he knew it was going to be big. He purchased 10 years’ worth of raw material needed to build touch screens. Brands that wanted to copy Apple’s technology had to pay a much higher price for the supplies. This gave Apple the competitive advantage of being able to produce the product at half the cost of the competition.

Does the brand have any attributes or benefits that dominate competitors? 

  • What attributes (properties) or benefits do you see that dominate the competitors? For example, iPhones dominate the smartphone market and have done so for many years. Other brands may have more features, lower costs, and a longer battery life, but iPhone buyers are loyal (sometimes jokingly referred to as a cult!). While iPhones were among the first touchscreen phones, it was their user-friendly platform and their ability to communicate seamlessly across other Apple devices that made them popular worldwide.

  • Define your actual positioning statement for the business and discuss why you have decided upon this actual positioning statement. Remember, once you write your positioning statement, make sure you address why you created it and why you think it will work.

Once you create your motto, make sure you address why you created the motto and why you think it will work.
