"I have just received your prompt report on your trip to South Africa. I appreciate the dispassionate tone of the report and the factual back up information which goes to support it. Often I get reports which don't give much direction but just weigh the pro's and con's, you haven't done that, you've given clear and practical advice.

I'm confident in your advice .... you clearly understood what we needed to know. Thanks again, it's top value for money."

Here's How to Increase Your Profits ....  with Product Differentiation

key to success in export markets, especially when a business operates on a smaller scale than it's competitors, is frequently product differentiation.

Where a business expects to produce at a higher unit cost than it's competitors, it must be able to justify higher prices or accept lower profits and the risk of being increasingly unprofitable.

Higher prices can only be justified if customers see and believe the products are in some way
different to those offered by competitors.

You can create Differentiation from such things as -

  • presentation, including 1st impressions and timely response - differentiates company as supplier

  • design & materials of construction

  • promotion, including "packaging"

  • product performance characteristics

  • durability & reliability

  • ease of operation

  • availability, warehousing, production & delivery times

  • after sales support & operator training

  • skills of sales and technical support staff

  • financing arrangements

How do your products score ? ....

Do buyers of your products believe your company and it's product range is different from your
competitors and their products ? How do you know ?

Have you conducted realistic unbiased market research to confirm this ?

Are these differences seen as benefits by users, or obstacles ?

Are customers prepared to pay extra for your products in order to obtain these benefits ?

Do these benefits apply across all potential users of the products rather than there being
pronounced differences in customer perceptions & expectations in different market segments ?

Can you use these differences to create market segments or niches in which you have
significant sustainable competitive advantage ?

Your awareness of customer perceptions can give you greater profits. Excelink finds the answers.
