To get consulting gigs, you need people to understand the value you offer, and why that value is higher than other options they might consider. You don’t get much time to make them understand — attention spans are short, and the noise level is high — so you need to get your value across quickly. The best way to do that is to have a Unique Value Proposition, one that’s so simple, clear, and compelling that anyone immediately understands what you do and why it matters.
We’ll discuss factors that make an effective Unique Value Proposition, review some examples, and work on developing some new ones.
