Key Concepts

 

Differentiation strategy seeks to build competitive advantage with its product or service by having it be different from other available competitive products through features, performance, or other factors not directly related to price. The difference needs to be difficult to copy or imitate.

 

A successful differentiation strategy allows a firm to provide a product or service of perceived higher value to buyers at a cost below the value premium. The buyer feels the additional cost is well below what the product or service is worth to them.

 

Differentiation is usually preferable to Low-Cost strategy. Industry costs often decline over time, and as products age, competitors learn how to match cost advantages.
