Value Proposition Design

15 October 2018
Ashford, Co Wicklow

To run any successful business you need a clearly defined VALUE PROPOSITION that explains how your product/service solves your customers’ problem, need or improves their situation. A Value Proposition allows you to define who your customers are and to offer them what they really want. It also helps to secure grant aid or private investment.

In this 1-day workshop we will scope out your Value Proposition to help you to run an efficient and profitable, creative business.

Following a creative profession means spending a lot of time thinking from the perspective of “I” – what is my topic or my specific style, what do I want to stand for etc. However, without an engaged audience and buying customers the necessary revenue cannot be generated.

This is the moment when “they” perspective needs to be included into our thinking and planning. It does not mean changing the way we work, it means being able to clearly articulate why our work meets our customers’ needs.

We help you to work out a clear Value Proposition, to understand “they” perspective. We will lead the whole process and provide you with the tools and feedback you need. You will get a chance to apply the newest entrepreneurial techniques (i.e. Creative Business Model Canvas), and to discuss your ideas and challenges with us and a small group of other photographers developing their own endeavours and who are always happy to share their experiences.

Where appropriate we will look at your Value Propositions not only from a business but also from the social and cultural perspective.
