Price vs Value

Why do I Need to Sell on Value?

What if you have a product or service that you really don’t think you can maintain your necessary margin on if you lower the price substantially. If your products are on par or more expensive than your competitors you are going to have to come up with another strategy to compete for consumer dollars. This is where value selling comes into play. Value Selling gives you the oopportunity to showcase the problems you can solve or needs that can be met by chosing your goods and services. Paul Cherry, Managing Partner & Founder, Performance Based Results, has written a great article on how to successfully use value to get your customers to overcome issues of price.

Marrying Social Media and Business

This week I have been researching ways to use social media (twitter, facebook, linked-in, etc.) to add value and enhance my business.  What I have generally found are a million ways to sell an e-book that will tell the secrets of successful social media marketing and will make you boatloads of cash for doing nothing.  This is not the type of information I am looking for and unfortunately is the source of excessive amounts of spam on the social media networks that can really turn people off.  I am looking for genuine ideas on how to use social media to build relationships and gather market data.  I ran across a great article on the subject by Scott Testa who offers excellent tips on how to effectively use Social Media Networks.
