...paramount importance; if this fails to occur the means by which the firm’s worth is communicated to the market will be diluted. Worse, it may completely miss the mark in terms of resonating with the ideal customer. The starting point for any good value proposition—regardless of kind used—is the market.

The generic value propositions listed above help, but they aren’t a replacement of the kind of analysis essential to credibly communicating your product and service value to the market....
