Your product has two identities. But your customer buys your product because of just one of these identities. Oops.

See, when you pay $5,000 for your son’s braces, you aren’t buying a middle-aged man to follow you around in a white coat … nor are you buying stainless-steel rods to stick in your son’s mouth.

What you are buying are straight teeth. But not even that. You are buying what those straight teeth mean: beauty over bullying.

And I don’t run out to Lowe’s and drop $100 because I woke up dreaming about cordless drills.

I run out to Lowe’s and drop $100 because I want to finish that backyard patio this weekend, not six months down the road — and I want to enjoy it this weekend, not six months down the road.

In this 7-minute episode of Rough Draft with Demian Farnworth, you’ll discover:

  • Two clear examples of people buying the product in action
  • How to catch the eye of innovators and early adopters
  • What a Swedish car manufacturer does to distinguish its cars
  • The two identities of a product (and the one you should care about if you want to sell anything)
