[Ep #199] How to Leapfrog Your Competitors

Are you still using feature-benefit marketing and solution-based selling to promote and sell your products and services?

According to my guest today – feature-benefit marketing and solution-based selling worked well in a world with tightly controlled information, high barrier to entry and sales-led selling cycles.

However in today’s reality of information commoditization and buyer led purchases, if you cling to those ways, you’ll forever be in the weeds of priority and importance.

Joining me on today’s show is Ken Rutsky.

Author of LAUNCHING TO LEADING, he is a B2B marketing consultant focused on helping his clients break through and become market leaders.


On today’s show Ken is going to share:

  • How to leapfrog competitors;
  • How to rise above drab and boring content marketing by delivering messages that educates and compels potential consumers;
  • And, how by following his game plan, clients have had IPO’s, acquisitions and private equity funding that have delivered over $10 billion of value to investors and entrepreneurs.


Don’t add to the online noise by producing drab and boring content. Deliver messages that educates and compels potential consumers. – Ken Rutsky
