17 Small Details Add Big Value

You’re all too well aware how value-conscious we’ve become lately. A lot of low-end businesses are doing well, as so many people down-size, or downscale their lives. However, adding value doesn’t have to mean cutting prices. Competing on price only is really not fun, or sustainable.

Adding value can be just that – making an item, a service, or an experience more valuable. That means more lovely, more fun, more interesting, more flavor, more helpful, faster, or better.
You probably add value to your life without realizing. Take a moment to think about how you, and your buddies do add value to your personal and professional lives.
Ways we add value:
– Wrapping a gift.
– Changing the numbers on your house to ones that are better designed.
– Using the services of a graphic designer for your business cards and other presentation materials.
– Writing a blog.
– Writing a note of appreciation on nice paper and mailing it.
– Decorating your cubicle or office.
– Displaying original artwork.
– Taking the time to make your message shorter.
– Putting an attractive sticker on outgoing mail. (Stickers are not just for kindergarten!)
– Translating your product or service.
– Taking extra good care of your body.
– Social graces (aka good manners.)
– Incorporating a health awareness program at work. (Admittedly not such a small detail.)
– Learning more about investment opportunities.
– Learning any skill, or how to use any technology gizmo.
– Introducing people to each other.
– Keeping your car clean.
How do you add value? Let us count the ways!
