BIRMINGHAM, ENGLAND, June 04, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- A recent article by Business News Daily has encouraged Birmingham-based Pro UK Consultants to come forward with what could be considered a controversial statement: 'Don't be the industry's best'. To most, striving to the best in their field is one of their key goals. However, when it comes to marketing, Pro UK Consultants claims too much self-promotion can in fact have a negative reaction from consumers.
Elizabeth Palermo, a contributor to the Business News Daily published an article title 'Being the 'Best' Isn't Best for Marketing to Consumers' on May 14, 2014. The article reviews the results of a marketing study conducted by researchers at the Northwestern University Kellogg School of Management. The outcome shown that marketing managers who advertise their products as 'the best alternatives' actually set themselves up for failure, as such activity decreases a business' chances of success with their consumers. Researchers at the University referred to this problem as the 'maximizing mindset'. Neal J.Roese, a co-author of the study and professor at the Kellogg School of Management said, "If you're in this maximising mindset, no matter how good the product us, [consumers are] going to be unsatisfied with it if it's anything less than the most amazing thing ever."

Po UK Consultants, an outsourced sales and marketing firm in Birmingham, West Midlands, has witnessed this negative reaction brands receive from customers when they over-sell their product. Pro UK Consultants tend to under-promote and over-deliver when it comes to their marketing strategies. "Talking big is not always the best way to reach customers. It's important we attract attention for the right reasons. We must be very careful with how we do this - we do not want to turn against the brand," says Jameel Paul, the managing director of Pro UK Consultants.
