What Is Customer Value?
the perceived worth of the benefits received by a customer in exchange for the total cost of the offer, taking into consideration available competitive offers and prices
in terms of utility - not product or service
a trade-off between benefits and costs
Types of value
propositions by the B2B seller:
The suppliers list every perceived benefit delivered by their product or service.
Favourable points of difference:
Based on the customer's awareness of alternatives, this requires the supplier to have knowledge of alternatives to his own offers.
The suppliers need to make their offers superior on key elements of value that are most relevant to the customers. The supplier's offer must demonstrate and document their superior performance. In addition, the offer must clearly display the supplier's understanding of their customers' business problems.
