B2B Postitioning

Image of B2B consultant as architect and engineer of brand repositioning and message strategies.People are surprised, sometimes even shocked, to learn the perceptions they have about their company’s positioning are not at all how various publics perceive them.

How you are positioned in the marketplace largely determines your success. It determines how many sales opportunities you receive. It determines whether you can breeze through your prospect’s qualifying rounds to the finals, or whether you’ll have to do battle just to get a seat at the table. Your position in the marketplace also determines the prices you can charge and the margins you realize.

If nearly every sale of yours seems to come down to price, if you’re closing fewer sales than you used to, if your margins keep shrinking, you may need to reposition your company in the marketplace, in the minds of both your prospects and your people.
