    • “This shirt is made of cotton. It is soft and will keep you cooler in hot weather.”

  • Unique/exclusive—come only with the purchase of a particular product

    • “If the pizza does not arrive within 30 minutes of when you order by phone it is free.”

    • “Look at the back of this watch, it has a release mechanism for changing the battery.”

Feature benefit chart

A listing of a product’s features with their corresponding benefits

Feature-benefit chart


How to create a feature benefit chart

List all the features of a product on a chart—start with the ones that are most obvious

Next list the less obvious or hidden features

At each feature, ask “What will the customer get from this?”

Write this answer beside the feature

There may be multiple benefits for one feature
