The Better Mousetrap

Sometimes the good stuff leaps out at you during a random phone call. Tonight it was from my good friend David Bailey, a source of many gems, but this one I particularly liked. So, with his permission:

If your customer has a mouse, don’t build the better mousetrap. Just trap that mouse.

Don’t just focus on what you can do. Focus on solving your customer’s problem.

  • “Don’t just focus on what you can do. Focus on solving your customer’s problem.”

    I agree with that. If you focus on solving your customer’s problem, they will keep on coming back to you because they know that you care for them.
