Synopsis: It's not the best companies that prevail in the marketplace, but rather the best brands.    The goal of business strategy is not just to be better, but different.   Learn how to build a differentiating value proposition by clearly and carefully defining your brand boundaries: Calling, Competencies, Customers, and Culture.  

 Positioning for Professionals shows how a well-defined value proposition can help professional service firms create their own success instead of copying the success of others, including such concepts as:

- How and why professional service brands become homogenized

- Why standing for everything is the same as standing for nothing

- Why there's no such thing as full service

- Deep and narrow as a strategic imperative

- Why it's better to be a profit leader than a market leader

- Differentiation and price premiums

- How to map your brand on the matrix of relevance and differentiation

- How to define a value proposition that will make your firm intensely appealing to the customers who want you for what you do best

 Based on the proven premise that the most profitable business strategy is not to aim at the center of the market, but rather at the edges, Positioning for Professionals is written for leaders, managers, and other senior executives of service companies in with a particular emphasis on professional service firms.

From the Back Cover: Better isn?t always better. Different is better.

?Most managers invest their time and energy in trying to make their firms better, when in fact they should also be working to make their firms different.??From Positioning for Professionals

Why are some professional service firms so much more successful than their competitors? The difference isn?t just talent, but focus. The best firms know that standing for everything is the same as standing for nothing. Instead of trying to be good at everything, they do what they do best and find resources for the rest.

Destined to become the positioning strategy companion you?ll turn to again and again, Positioning for Professionals offers executives of professional service firms proven strategies for positioning their firms for maximum success in the marketplace.

Drawn from his decades of work in the advertising and marketing fields, thought leader Tim Williams helps you develop a differentiating value proposition with valuable insights on:

  • Why it?s better to be a profit leader than a market leader
  • How to overcome your natural fear of focus
  • Making your firm hard to imitate
  • Out-of-the-ordinary ways to differentiate your firm from the "sea of sameness"
  • Why every company is a brand, like it or not?
  • ?and why every single business decision you make affects the success and reputation of your brand

It?s no coincidence that a handful of top firms keep winning the most business, attract the best talent, and earn the highest margins. They?re the ones that have staked out a differentiating positioning strategy that capitalizes on their strengths. Rather than being mildly appealing to a broad group of prospects, they?re intensely appealing to a select group of prospects. They?re the firms that follow the valuable principles you?ll find in this book.
