With Super Bowl XLVIII coming up this weekend between the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks, I have a slightly different way to think about your company’s marketing. If you’re not a football fan, you may be wondering, “What the heck is a ’12th Man?'”.
In professional football, each team is allowed to have 11 players on the field at a time. However, the concept of a team’s “12th Man” is thought to have been created in the early 1900s – when football was still a very new sport. The “12th Man” refers to the team’s loyal, spirited fans in the stadium. These rowdy fans – especially in the case of the Seattle Seahawks (to a tune of around 130+ decibels!) – can have a significant impact on the game by using crowd noise to disrupt the concentration and play-making ability of their opponent. As you might guess, this “12th Man” gives the home team a significant competitive advantage in the game.
It’s important to think of your company’s marketing as your “12th Man”. Whether you’re a small, medium, or large company, your marketing can give your business a significant advantage over your competition. Really great marketing can definitely disrupt your competitors – and even your entire industry.
