A unique selling proposition (USP) is a statement that succinctly outlines how your business is different from the competition. It is a promise you make to your target audience that spells out what is different about your business that makes it the obvious and best choice.

Your USP can be an important part of your branding by helping to make your business memorable. As you write your unique selling proposition, review these example USPs developed by other small businesses, and add your own to the list to inspire others.
