The Non-Dentist Branding Extreme

The Non-Dentist Branding Extreme

Posted on 03-23-2011

It's a great idea for business owners to distinguish themselves from their competitors. Some dentists like to position themselves based on their specialties, such as "oral health expert," or "dental surgeon."

This week there was a funny example of a billion dollar company taking this too far at this link.

A publicist for WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment, formerly known as WWF), requested that TV Week remove references to "wrestling" from a press release about a WWE event. Kellie, the WWE representative, said that WWE is now a "global entertainment" company and not associated with wrestling. TV Week's Chuck Ross called her to iron out this misunderstanding. This is part of the conversation:

Chuck Ross: Your release says that Carey is being recognized as being an entrant in the 2001 Royal Rumble. I believe that was a wrestling event.

Kellie: No, we don't do wrestling events. They're entertainments. And we don't call them wrestlers. They're superstars and divas.

Chuck Ross: Kellie, I really don't have time for this. WWE presents wrestling events. I'm not going to change the headline or anything in the item. If you'd like, I'll just remove it. What do you want me to do?

Kellie: Remove it.

We all can see the absurdity from taking your positioning to the extreme. No matter what you want to call yourself, it never makes sense to adamantly fight off traditional references.

I intended to draft you this very ltilte word just to thank you as before relating to the nice advice you've shared in this article. It is so particularly open-handed of people like you to present openly all many of us might have offered for sale as an e-book to make some dough for their own end, certainly considering the fact that you might have tried it in case you wanted. These creative ideas in addition served to become a great way to fully grasp the rest have the same keenness just as my very own to see lots more on the subject of this matter. I am certain there are some more enjoyable periods in the future for folks who scan through your blog.
