Improve business performance by creating more meaningful engagement amongst customers, prospects, and employees. Discover how to effectively apply specific cult branding principles we’ve uncovered from decades of working with some of the world’s most cult-like brands.
Unfortunately, many businesses are now led by executives two or more generations removed from the founder. These leaders are often more worried about maintaining the status quo than disrupting it to make a real impact. We, as leaders, need the inspiration, motivation, and know-how to behave more courageously.
Creating advertising is a very different skill set than creating advocates. Brand advocates purchase more and usually pay full price. They don't require constant media and markdowns to transact. They give you the benefit of the doubt when you make mistakes. Advocates forgive and defend your actions.
Successful brands have actionable insights into the audience segments that enable them to enhance the emotional and rational drivers that affect engagement. Mediocre brands rely on intuition or satisfactions metrics such as NPS, and fail to provide sufficient predictive or prescriptive intelligence to inform crucial decisions.
