An expertise statement looks like this:
I want to help [who]
to do [what]
through doing [this], [this], and [this]
It is something every business needs to clarify who they are serving, how they are helping them, and exactly what they are going to do to help them out. The more specific you can make the statement, the more valuable it is for the clients. It is hard to make it specific as a business owner because you fear that you are going to lose clients by narrowing down the playing field, but the more specific you make it, the more likely clients will want to work with you. If you have a specific expertise statement, it will do half of the selling for you and make your clients trust you and believe in you more.
Here is an example of a generic expertise statement:
I want to help people to not be hungry by making them food.
Here is a specific expertise statement:
I want to help the everyday middleclass person
experience pleasure and celebration
by making extravagant and ridiculuously beautiful cupcakes.
Can you see the difference? Which person do you want to buy from? Which company do you want to do business with? Which one will you pay more money for because it is more valuable to you?
