The Difference Between Pageant Systems

Are you new to the world of pageantry? Have you ever wondered why there are so many "Miss Somebodies" walking around? Let's break this common newbie question down. Hope you are not hungry, we will be using food to illustrate. Welcome to Pageantry 101.

First thing first...

What do the following fast-food chains have in common? McDonald's, Burger King, KFC, Wendy's, Chick-Fil-A, Taco Bell, Five Guys, Popeyes, Bojangles, Long John Silvers, Arby's, Sonic, Subway, White Castle, Chipotle, Quiznos, Checkers, and the list can go on...

Specific Audience or Appetite

They all serve fast food. Some of them have similar items on their menu. Each of them serves a purpose for their customers not only solving hungry bellies but also providing quick meals to hungry people around the nation. Yet, they are each unique. This is the same within pageantry.

Defined Purpose

I bet if we sat down with each of the fast-food chain's CEOs we would learn about their company's mission, history, and their unique value proposition or company vision. There is an elephant in the room because most pageant competitors' nutritional plans are processed food free or heavily limited. But this old analogy always helped my non-pageant family and friends - get it!

There are tons of other food chains across the nation and globally. Pageant competitors select the brand or organization hopefully based on what aligns best with their personal and professional goals. Think of every pageant system as a unique brand.

Think about how many coffee shops there are. Different types of supermarkets! Why do you frequent those places? Maybe its location, service, or what's on the menu or a particular item you can only find there.

If you are new to pageantry, I highly recommend exploring Pageant Planet. Pageant Planet is the world's largest pageant online resource and through its directory, you will be sure to find the best pageant for your tastebuds.
