You Don't Have to Be the most famous to be front and centre

David Howse Calgary Marketer PR

Almost everyone has heard of Mount Everest but if a photo of Everest was in a random line-up of other mountain photos very few would be able to pick it out. Unlike Everest, The Matterhorn is easily the most recognizable mountain but it is only a small fraction the size of Everest. Sometimes you can't compete head-on with number one and in those cases you need a good strategy to maximize what you do have.

Consider the photo above. Why is the Mona Lisa the most famous painting in the world? It is small, most people are not affluent enough in art to tell you why it is so good and, if you stood next to it long enough you would hear more than one person say, "that's it????" with a tone of disappointment.

Maybe for some things or people it is all about the story.
