“I think you can have moderate success by copying something else, but if you really want to knock it out of the park, you have to do something different and take chances.”… Lee Ann Womack
How is your product/brand different, distinctive, exclusive?
How does your product/brand stand out from the competition?
In a sea of sameness, does your product/brand stand out?

Re-inventing basics with updated design, technology and features… Adding newness, freshness and interjecting something special, something cool or something that will excite and delight your consumer.
New products/brands today must address your consumer’s needs and desires by embracing key lifestyle trends that are on top of every consumer’s mind today.
How will your product/brand enrich and add to your consumer’s life… will it add value to their lives and their homes… will it add convenience, comfort, safety, well-being, or just add a much needed element of delight?
