DISTINGUISH YOURSELF! - Business Strategies

2 3 More and more often,

2 3 More and more often, companies fall into the Commodity Trap, Customer competing solely on price. Commodities are products that are indistinguishable from one another, encouraging customers to base their choice solely on price. A sole focus on cheap prices and high volumes leads to price erosion and standard products that lack unique attributes or characteristics. This brochure outlines the key strategies for avoiding and escaping the Commodity Trap, paving the way for healthy profitability. DISTINGUISHING CAPACITY NO LONGER PERCEPTIBLE INCREASED COMPETITION COMMODITY TRAP PRICE AS SOLE DECISION CRITERIA PRICE EROSION DUE TO FOCUS ON VOLUME Distinguish yourself! Market Manager •• •• •• •• •• Are your customers aware of how your company distinguishes itself from the competition? Have your prices been on a steady decline during the past few years? Is customer retention low? Are many of your competitors broadening their portfolio? Is price the main reason why your customers choose between you and the competition? Only one can be the cheapest Increased competition, in part due to globalisation and the rise of countries like India and China, has led to a wider array of choices for the consumer. Companies generally feel they are still able to distinguish themselves, for example on the basis of product specifications, quality, or service. Unfortunately, the customer is unable to discern these implicit distinctions in such a broad offering. More importantly, he is unable to appreciate these distinctions. He is therefore not willing to pay more for these hidden distinctions, and as such will base his choice solely on the cost of the purchase.
