Competitive Advantage • marketing • SALES • OPERATIONS • differentiation
For nearly 20 years organizations have contacted Smart Advantage when they realize they need to do a better job at differentiation.
Smart Advantage was founded by Jaynie L. Smith, and has grown since the release of Creating Competitive Advantage. Creating Competitive Advantage outlines the rewarding effects for organizations who effectively differentiate themselves to their buyers by focusing their messaging and operational excellence on competitive advantages. Smart Advantage has grown to include a number of presenters, consultants, and market research experts.
Since the book’s release in 2006, Smart Advantage has applied its methodology to help organizations 1) uncover potential differentiators; 2) learn what buyers value most when choosing a supplier; 3) align organizations to those buying values; and 4) effectively communicate (prove) based on attributes buyers most value.
