The Value Proposition Generating Your Elevator Speech : The Value Proposition Generating Your Elevator Speech Cody, WY June 2, 2004 PresenterRandy W. DipnerMeeting the Challenge, Inc.—Colorado Springs, CO : PresenterRandy W. DipnerMeeting the Challenge, Inc.—Colorado Springs, CO Phone: 719-444-0252 x105; Fax: 719-444-0269Cell: 719-510-2822; e-mail: dipner@mtc-inc.com www.mtc-inc.com The Value Proposition : The Value Proposition Most folks don’t have an effective “elevator speech” in their heads; having one that is effective will immediately set you apart—just as a great abstract gets a proposal off to a good start Capture the essence of your message in a 30-second, 2-sentence elevator speech The elevator speech identifies most key elements that make up the proposal story The methodology presented here is based on Geoffrey Moore’s paradigm presented in Crossing the Chasm Sample Elevator Speeches : Sample Elevator Speeches Electronics Processing - Original : Electronics Processing - Original Imagine a rubber or a fiber or a coating that conducts electricity. Or imagine a hard plastic-like casing conducting electricity. Why is this important? We solve a number of problems in industry. For example, static discharge causes $40 billion in losses for the electronics industry on an annual basis. With our product, we can solve that problem. Or imagine silicon being replaced with conductive plastic in a smart card, where it would cost pennies rather than a dollar to make that product. We are the only company in the world that can make conductive plastics that is very inexpensive – so inexpensive that we can have 65 percent gross margins. Our research is based on 10 years technology research at CMU. Software Developer - Original : Software Developer - Original Knosis has the only available software package that captures a proven methodology for taking an effective idea and assembling it. Imagine you run a large management consulting firm and 50,000 consultants and 15 million hours a year assembling, of course, up over a million reports and presentations. What price will you pay for inefficient report or presentation practices? How many clients will you lose because presentations are not…compelling? The number one cause of ineffective (presentations) …is the failure to organize ideas for the way people think. The number one solution is the methodology that has become an industry standard in management consulting. Knosis has completed a packaged software that streamlines (the process)…Word of our product has sparked high-level interest in seven global companies. We’re seeking $500,000 to accelerate…our efforts. Typical Elevator Speech Problems : Typical Elevator Speech Problems All about “me.” Don’t clearly identify the benefits or the beneficiary. Don’t identify the problem being solved or why the problem is important. Don’t connect the technology or business with a readily understood industry. Don’t discriminate the company from the competition. Rarely identify the competition or state-of-the-art. Creating an Elevator Speech The Process : Creating an Elevator Speech The Process The “Elevator Speech” Process : The “Elevator Speech” Process For: List target customers. Group them and ultimately define THE customer. Who: Define the need or opportunity. That is, what critical issue does the customer face? The: Name the product or service or concept. Is a: Place the product, service, or concept into a generally understood category. That: List the benefits – not the features – of the product, service, or concept provides to the customer. Group or prioritize the benefits to identify the single benefit that is the most compelling reason for the customer to buy the product, service, or concept. To the maximum extent possible, the benefit should be quantified. Unlike: List the competitors and competitive alternatives – i.e. the state of the art. Our: Develop a statement of the primary differentiation of the product, service, or concept. The differentiation is the single most important thing that sets your product, service, or concept apart from the competition or state of the art. An “Elevator Speech” Example : An “Elevator Speech” Example For: electronics industry manufacturers Who: annually experience over $40 billion in loses due to static discharge, The: PolyTronics’ conductive plastic Is an: advanced material That: inexpensively and completely eliminates damage from static electricity. Unlike: currently used, expensive static discharge equipment Our: product is an integral part of the electronics assembly that continually drains static charge from the product assembly. Electronics Processing - Rewrite : Electronics Processing - Rewrite For electronics industry manufacturers who annually experience over $40 billion in loses due to static discharge, the PolyTronics conductive plastic is an advanced material that inexpensively and completely eliminates damage from static electricity. Unlike currently used, expensive static discharge equipment, our product is an integral part of the assembly that continually drains static charge from the product assembly. Electronics Processing - Alternative : Electronics Processing - Alternative Electronics industry manufacturers annually experience over $40 billion in loses due to static discharge. PolyTronics has developed a conductive plastic that is a state of the art material that inexpensively and completely eliminates damage from static electricity. Currently used industry methods require expensive static discharge equipment that only work while the piece is connected. Our product, on the other hand, is an integral part of the assembly that continually drains static charge from the product assembly. Software Developer - Rewrite : Software Developer - Rewrite For large system engineering consulting firms who need to effectively and efficiently assemble coherent presentations of complex ideas from many collaborating partners, the Knosis product is a knowledge management package that incorporates the industry-standard methodology in an easy to use software tool. Unlike the manual process, our product can manage input from thousands of consultants and develop a final presentation of the idea with a few keystrokes. The Pear Label : The Pear Label For consumers who now struggle to determine the ripeness of pears and other types of fruit in the supermarket, the non-toxic Fruit-Ripe™ label is a simple indicator on every piece of fruit that changes color to show consumers when the fruit is ready to eat. Unlike current ripeness testing by consumers—the often unreliable squeeze or sniff test—our Fruit-Ripe™ label ensures consumers are able to select fruit at its peak of ripeness while retailers lose less fruit to bruising and spoilage, enabling growers to sell more fruit to a satisfied market. The potential worldwide market could reach many billions of units per year.
