Who this book is for
Those new to branding and brand marketing. Those in the early stages of creating or rethinking a brand. Get this book if you are looking to transform a company, or team, into an engine of nonstop Innovation. If you liked The Brand Gap, you’ll love The Brand Flip Anyone interested in transforming their company and brand.
In 2003 Marty Neumeier, the first expert to call for the hiring of chief brand officers, or CBOs, redefined a ‘brand’ from being a logo to being ‘a customer’s gut feeling about a product, service, or company’. In other words, ‘It’s not what you say it is. It’s what they say it is’. It’s based on a simple but challenging mandate: ‘When everyone zigs, zag’. Zagging is the art of positioning a product or company in order to eliminate or minimize competition. Companies that zig (i.e., head in the same direction as their competitors) have no choice but to compete on price. Great brands aren’t built in isolation; they require the talent and cooperation of a wide range of people with differing skill sets. The secret of nonstop innovation is design thinking. Today’s customers don’t buy brands; they join brands. They no longer want products; they want meaning. They hate to be sold to, but they love to buy—and they buy in tribes. Social media has ushered in ten major changes to how businesses operate. Marty Neumeier presents concepts from his three bestselling ‘whiteboard’ books—The Brand Gap, Zag, and The Designful Company—to give you the tools you need to thrive in the new economy.
What You Will Learn
Marty (the first to identify customer communities as ‘brand tribes’, passionate devotees who determine the success or failure of any brand) divides brand management into five key competencies: differentiation, collaboration, innovation, validation, and cultivation. At the heart of the book is a simple test: Our brand is the only _________ that _________. By filling in the blanks, you’ll not only build the foundation for a strong brand, but have a filter for every decision you make going forward. Zag was named one of ‘the hundred best business books of all time’. How to foster creative collaboration across a variety of roles and silos to deliver a constant stream of innovative products, services, communications, and customer experiences. How to apply the ’16 levers of change’ to transform your company from a fast follower to an innovation leader. Marty addresses these major changes with simple but powerful frameworks such as the Brand Commitment Matrix, the Brand Commitment Scale, and the Brand Experience Map. As in all of Marty’s whiteboard books, The Brand Flip is filled with insightful graphics that make reading a pleasure. Using memorable principles and simple exercises, Marty leads you and your team on a lively journey from traditional business thinking to ‘designful’ thinking. You’ll come back to these ideas again and again as you transform your company into a powerhouse of nonstop innovation.
