Unique Selling Proposition
We live in a very competitive world, don't we? Believe us, it's even more competitive for entrepreneurs 🙂 So...what will make you stand out? It's the USP- Unique Selling Proposition of your product
Unique Selling Proposition, as the name suggests, reflects the benefits that your product offers and its competitors don't. It must be a feature that helps your customers realize that your product stands out in the market. So, to determine a USP, both the consumer market and product category are considered.
The USP of your product gives your customers a reason to choose you over your competitors, thereby expanding your business and increasing brand awareness! 😌

“work expands to fill the time available for its completion.”
“If I give you twenty-four hours to complete a job, you will finish it in 24 hours with decent quality. If I give you a week, you will likely “plan” for six days and still finish the job in the last twenty-four hours.” ― Pankaj Goyal,

The Story of Zoho
This time we bring to you the story of Sridhar Vembu, a Padma Shree Awardee and the Co-Founder of Zoho. Zoho Corporation is a world leader in cloud-based software products and is capable of transforming India. What Zoho Schools teach is much more relevant for real software careers.
At Zoho, they look for skillsets and abilities more than for paper credentials They do not charge our students any fees. Instead, they pay a stipend - starting at Rs 10,000 /month - throughout the course of study. After the successful completion of the course, the student is automatically inducted as an employee into Zoho.
Watch this video to understand more about how it works.
That’s all for this week. Until we meet again.
