Every generation of marketer has faced the same dilemma: how do you
differentiate your product from the mass of competitors? And every
generation will swear they are going to battle in a more competitive
landscape than their predecessors – and they may be right.

advertising vastly exceeds what we can, or even want to, digest.
Naturally over time each one of us develops a mental filtration system
that effectively weeds out that which we don’t perceive to offer value.
It’s a human defense mechanism that has been very well honed over time.
It’s also one of the largest hurdles to clear when attempting retail marketing.
