    So, what does this mean? What ever product you sell, has a price. But what added value are you putting to it? In today's competitive market, it's no long about just selling a product, it's about what you add to that product that makes customers come back again and again. Are you providing added value to your product or service?

    21/04/2017 #10 Jared Wiese, ๐Ÿ adds VALUE & RESULTS
    #9 Agree, good discussion!

    If marketers do a superb job to convey real value (in content) yet the consumer is savvy enough not to need that value, they will not buy.

    It's why many people are turned off by "sales" people. They want THEIR perceived value - not the salesperson's - else they don't buy.
    Devesh ๐Ÿ Bhatt
    21/04/2017 #9 Devesh ๐Ÿ Bhatt
    #8 question.. content marketing has value, people value the message. They agree it is honest. But they dont think that the product has value.

    How would you classify such a scenario.. we could then proceed to examples.

    This is a great buzz. The message is great too. Im just adding a caution that a buyer should be aware that price is part of the value equation.
    Jared Wiese, ๐Ÿ adds VALUE & RESULTS
    21/04/2017 #8 Jared Wiese, ๐Ÿ adds VALUE & RESULTS
    #7 On the whole, I think we agree. When you say "earlier it was about just selling the product", isn't that back when marketing focused on gimmicks to make you want a product - like beautiful music and happy people using your cheap product?

    I believe the point is that this approach no longer works. Perhaps It led to content marketing. Per http://contentmarketinginstitute.com/what-is-content-marketing/

    Traditional marketing is becoming less and less effective by the minute; as a forward-thinking marketer, you know there has be a better way.

    Enter content marketing.

    "Content marketing is a strategic marketing approach focused on creating and distributing valuable, relevant, and consistent content to attract and retain a clearly-defined audience โ€” and, ultimately, to drive profitable customer action."

    I see the parallel between VALUABLE content in marketing and showing the value to buyers. Then they buy and see the value and are more interested in repeat purchases and referrals than they would be for cheapest price.

    Perhaps I am misguided. To your point, if I walk into a car dealership and someone appoaches me, I squirm. I know the value I seek and they can't talk me into it. I may look for some clarifications or new info to confirm my value bias, but I soon am looking for the best deal (cheapest price) as the next part of value. If the car sucked to begin with, no price would matter.

    21/04/2017 #7 Devesh ๐Ÿ Bhatt
    #5 true. But when we say it is no longer about just selling the product, we are presuming that earlier it was about just selling the product. This quote merely reveals a fact which gets rehashed into putting value and price on opposite sides of the scale.

    Saving money is also part of the value equation. Not stressing ones pocket when cash is low is part of the value equation.

    The value equation also includes utility (whether percieved or creates), a unique experience and recovery on resale/disposal.

    Is it a good buyer practice to presume value or evaluate upon service of a requirement?

    Price is part of the value equation,

    21/04/2017 #5 Jared Wiese, ๐Ÿ adds VALUE & RESULTS
    #3 Thanks for the reply, Devesh.

    I think many would agree that Warren Buffett is one of the best value investors, proactively. You are right that the quote is for that perspective.

    However, I believe like the Peter says, "it's no long[er] about just selling a product, it's about what you add to that product that makes customers come back". Sure some customers only care about price. If it is practically free many will buy for that reason, again and again.

    And, some will eventually realize that the cheap products don't last or give the perceived value they expected. "You get what you pay for" comes to mind.

    It seems to me that what differentiates sales is repeat customers, more value than price, lasting value.
    What meets sales is lowest price, least quality, minimal value.
    Devesh ๐Ÿ Bhatt
    21/04/2017 #3 Devesh ๐Ÿ Bhatt
    #2 we presume value, this quote is from the perspective of a buyer, like buying stocks.

    Now as a seller, i might give something that ads value, but sometimes people dont want value. They want the cheapest thing available because the cheapest thing is value, money saved.

    Value addition does apply to the US, but lately i am seeing American tourists being more price conscious than before..how does it apply their. Dont we use price and value as inputs to measure each other?
    Jared Wiese, ๐Ÿ adds VALUE & RESULTS
    21/04/2017 #2 Jared Wiese, ๐Ÿ adds VALUE & RESULTS
    #1 I'm not so sure about that. For example, is that what Warren Buffett does, consistently?

    I'd offer if you know your market and the value you provide, you can market ahead of time, correctly, gain customers and they will come back.

    #1 @Sue Bryan Great Point. I guess, I would add "while with a source of daily motivation". I choice to surround myself with positive minds and read and listen to their material on a daily basis. So, when I come to an obstacle of resistance, it doesn't last. For example, this great group of beBee has enough positive energy for each day. I just have to choose to keep giving myself that daily dose I need.

    @Preston ๐Ÿ Vander Ven Thank you for the post Preston. On your point two โ€œDo things even if you donโ€™t feel like itโ€, I find it useful to have what I call a 15 minute rule. Do something that you donโ€™t feel like for fifteen minutes and more times than not the activity becomes energizing in itself, and the feeling of not wanting to do disappears.

    Thanks for sharing these valuable tips, Preston. I find that #2 - do things even if you don't feel like it - can backfire if it is not handled carefully. Pushing through resistance can be empowering, but can also cause rebellion down the road if the causes of the resistance are not dealt with.
