At the core of any successful business is a value proposition that targets their customers' most pressing pains, gains, and opportunities. Value proposition design is a process in which you and your team get to the bottom of what your customers want the most by using the value proposition canvas. This canvas acts as a set of guidelines that will help you uncover who your users are, what they are trying to accomplish and where your business can help them.

Using the canvas will help align you and your business to specific user needs, meeting them head-on with solutions that will help alleviate their problems and of course ... help you make money.

It's a never-ending process that requires constant iteration. As market trends change and adapt you need to evolve your value proposition(s) constantly to keep it relevant and useful to your customers.
