Jargon in Branding, Marketing & Sales.

Always remember these

What is USP

A Unique Selling Proposition (USP) is a marketing term used to describe the feature or attribute of a product or service that makes it different from and better than the competition. It is a statement that illustrates how your product is unique and why customers should buy it.

The best example of a Unique Selling Proposition is Apple. They can create unique products that people want to buy, even if they don't need them. Their products are always sleek and stylish and have a certain appeal that other companies can't replicate. Like iWatch, iPhone, Macbook, iMac, iBook and more.

 

What is ESP

An emotional selling proposition (ESP) is a marketing term used to describe the feature or attribute of a product or service that makes it desirable to consumers based on their emotional needs or desires. It is a statement that illustrates how your product meets customers' emotional needs and why they should buy it.

The best example of an emotional selling proposition is Coca-Cola. They have created a brand that people feel emotionally connected to. The brand represents happiness and joy; people buy Coke because they want to feel those emotions.

 

What is ISP 

An ironic selling proposition (ISP) is a marketing term used to describe the feature or attribute of a product or service that makes it desirable to consumers based on their ironic needs or desires. It is a statement that illustrates how your product meets customers' ironic needs and why they should buy it.

The best example of an ironic selling proposition is KFC. They have created a brand that people feel ironically connected to. KFC is commonly known for unhealthy choices and overindulgence; people purchase from them to mock those eating habits.

 

What will the combination of USP, ESP and ISP look like?

An example of a product with a combination of USP, ESP and ISP would be Nike. They have a unique selling proposition of being the best at sports, an emotional selling proposition of making people feel physically fit and athletic, and an ironic selling proposition of being associated with Lance Armstrong.
