A selection from the new book: Different Rules – the B2B Marketer’s Guidebook to Product Differentiation
B2B “Differentiation” idea starters – Part 2
By Chris Wirthwein
How the product works
My guess is your product doesn’t work exactly like every other one you compete with. If so, use this to your advantage. Show how your product works: in video, animations, via test results, or in the words of a satisfied user. You can explain how your product does what it does in countless creative and interesting ways. An example in the book DIFFERENT RULES cites market research which uncovered how one product worked provided a market-moving differentiator.
