Feeling the nickname love

I’m feeling the nickname love. Here’s what I heard back from you RE: yesterday’s email saying I need a nickname (along with an AMAZING picture):

Lance had tons of ideas:

  • The Positionist
  • The Positioner
  • Position Professor
  • Position Master
  • The Position Sensei

Pretty good! I’m partial to “The Positionist”. Michael offered:

  • The Positioning Sherpa

I like it! Danny suggested:

  • Momo the Positioning Mofo

Danny’s a branding expert, and I’m strongly inclined to go with his suggestion. But… then Marcus chimed in with:

  • The Positioning Godfather

I gotta say… that has nice ring to it. Trevor suggested:

  • “Trust Me” Phil

I like that one too. Jason then proceeded to rain on my parade by saying:

  • “Dude, you can’t give yourself a nickname”

He’s right. He cited the authoritative Seinfeld episode on the subject matter, which had me totally discouraged until this beauty came in from Anthony:

I’ve definitely got a new Gravatar image now at a minimum!

You all are amazing. Thank you for being here, and for your questions and comments and hilarious nickname contributions!

Finding a great market position can be fun, but it can also be challenging.

I’ve done everything I can to make it easier with this book: http://thepositioningmanual.com
