Seth Godin is one of my marketing idols. He wrote the book “Purple Cow”, which I think everyone should read even if you’re not a marketing guy.

One characteristic of a remarkable person, idea or product is that it is not for everyone. Otherwise, you must think twice. You might already be invincible. They just don’t care anymore.
