16 Amazing USP (Unique Selling Proposition) And Why They're Awesome



We're going to run down some awesome Unique Selling Proposition and tell you why they're great.

1) Avis

"We're number two. We try harder."

Why it's great:

It addresses a common problem of customers dealing with industry number one's in any industry.

And that is: they're so great, big and busy that they don't give that much effort anymore. Some of them have gone comfortable and complacent on they're thrones.

If you head on to their twitter acoount: https://twitter.com/Avis

You'll see that they're doing a lot for their customers: doing contests, giving surprise upgrades, and returning gadgets that we're accidentally left by customers on their rented cars!

Now that's customer service.

2) FedEx Corporation

"When it absolutely, positively has to be there overnight."

Why it's great:

This is an absolute game changer in it's industry.

It's speed, continence, and a very strong bold guarantee rolled into one!

3) DeBeers

"A diamond is forever."

Why it's great:

This too is a game changer.

It leveraged their product's inherent quality and aligned it to the all important wedding proposal and created a whole new industry and cultural practice of it's own.


4) Jetblue Airline

"JetBlue offers flights to 80+ destinations with free inflight entertainment, free brand-name snacks and drinks, lots of legroom and award-winning service."

Why it's great:

Many destinations how much? 80+. When it comes to USPs being specific with numbers boost claims and make them more persuasive.

Many? that sounds like 3 or more maybe. Maybe a dozen.

No Ma'am Sir it's 80+ destinations. Now that's really many.

With a lot of freebies and oh did they mention that legroom and that award they've won.

Specific number, freebies (that might also be given free by competitors but not said so, like many guarantees), addressing a common customer pain (a lot of legroom) and authority (award-winning, these guys could be trusted and is topnotch).


5) Domino's Pizza

"You get fresh, hot pizza delivered to your door in 30 minutes or less or it's free.."

Why it's great:

No it's not necessarily delicious, no it's not necessarily the best one out there and no it's not necessarily the cheapest.

Can you imagine using this in your business to beat competitors with lower prices!

It focuses on what the market wants and not on what the business owner wants. It focuses on the demand, on the loophole, on the frustration of the market.

What really matters is what really important to them (your customers).

And it's not just fast it's 30 minutes or less and with a very bold "or free" guarantee!

6) Safelite AutoGlass

"If you have a broken windshield you may need a repair or replacement. Trust America's auto glass experts Safelite® - call us 24 hours a day or book an ...."

Baboom! one bold amazing USP!

7) Mast Brothers Chocolate

"we’re from the 18th century, back when craftspeople were revered and took pride in working with their hands."

Why it's great:

Tradition, heritage and craftsmanship may not be important to the price haggler down the street.

But for the Chocolate Connoisseur in the long black limousine that's of top importance.

So who would you rather serve and please?

8) World’s Strongest Librarian

"

Why it's great:
