Rule #1 Thou Shall Not Copy
If there's one problem in all advertising, marketing, and promotional efforts, it is the sheer fact that there is too much competition out there. Everything just seems the same. If one copies another company let alone another company's promotional efforts, it only serves as a reminder of one's competition. Therefore, you don't want to remind your prospects about your competition, do you? So, don't copy them (or as Earl Nightingale once said), "Don't copy, create!" Be unique. Be original. Be special. Be so different that, if possible (and it is), your name or the name of your firm as well as the services you deliver become generic in the minds of prospects.
Have you ever heard a doctor say: "Take two acetylsalicylic acid tablets and call me in the morning"? What about "facial tissue," "cotton swab," or "adhesive bandage"? Of course not. It's Aspirin, Kleenex, Q-Tip, and Band-Aid. And that's not all. Xerox, FedEx, Velcro, Kwik Kopy, and Quick Lube also stick like glue in the mind. How is this possible? While there are many reasons for this, the first one is the fact that many of these firms created not only a new product or service but also a whole new category to place them in (see the next rule).
