A competitive advantage is an upper hand over competitors gained by offering consumers greater value, either by means of lower prices or by providing greater benefits and service that uphold higher prices.

For example; if you plan to shop online for a product and two different companies are offering you the same product quality with different prices one is saying “you’ll save 10 percent of your money for patronizing them” while the other is giving you no discount. Which offer will you go for? Leave your answer in the comments box.

To be clear, that doesn't mean that it just only price. Your business needs to have some compelling value proposition enabling to stand out and prove to prospective buyers that your solution is the right one.

This program draws the attention of older consumers and more of new customers knowing they’ll be getting your product to purchase at a lower rate.

You have strategically created a full awareness of your product or service and make your product or service stand out among competitors.

Consumers will always go for your product or service, why? Because of what you have done and with the mindset that such a program could come up again will hold them down.

Before you know it, they’ll continue to purchase your product and your sales will definitely increase in a matter of time.
