How do your customers see you? Market positioning is at the intersection of your offering and your customers – in the form of both the promise you make in the form of messaging, and customer perceptions of how well you deliver on that promise. Your goal is to uniquely claim a niche in the marketplace that encapsulates the value you deliver to your audience.
