What makes you and your company different from the rest? Why should I being a potential client come to you for service instead of the other guy? Everyone has an edge (or at least you hope you do) or an upperhand...what is yours?

Standing out on price alone is going to be very tough. There is always someone who can do it cheaper.

A keen attention to the details and making the customer feel important. These types of traits will win over a cheap price most times.
