Spend whatever time it takes to develop your own UNIQUE PURCHASE APPEAL. One sentence to one paragraph that describes how your business is different from the competition in a way that appeals to your target customer.

It should be reflected in every ad, every promotion, every customer service activity. This is the most powerful marketing concept on earth.
