Clearly explaining what you’re selling and why it’s beneficial is at the heart of marketing your business. 

Once you know what’s most important to your buyers, you can ensure that message is included in your website headlines, your introduction or elevator pitch, and your other marketing materials.

When you create one succinct way of describing this, it’s called a Unique Value Proposition.

How to write a Unique Value Proposition

Think of your UVP as a summary of what’s most important about your business. If you’re unsure, what a Unique Value Proposition is, read this.

A UVP includes all of these components in one sentence.

  1. A brief description of your product or service
  2. A short description of your ideal client
  3. The benefits of using your product or service

Examples of Unique Value Propositions

Here are some examples of UVP that were created using Branding Compass.

A UVP is not a tagline or slogan.

A Unique Value Proposition is not the same as a tagline or slogan.

Taglines or slogans are meant to be short and memorable. It’s OK if your UVP is longer and wordier. 

Once you have a written UVP, you can improve it to make it more punchy. Try rearranging the essential elements or removing unnecessary phrases to make them easy to say.
