Whether it’s scrolling through Instagram or browsing our email inboxes, the current crisis has tuned us into what brands do and say. Calmly, our personal values are near the surface: Is that letter from the CEO out of touch or appropriately optimistic? Marketing campaigns that don’t skip a beat as the world changes quickly can seem cheeky, and dull feelings of tone can quickly spur unsubscribe.
But it’s not all mistakes and missteps! Brands that affirm a strong mission and communication strategy can build pride and loyalty in their communities, driving long-term financial goals. While this is not a trivial question in challenging economic times, aligning with your brand purpose, whether it is streamlining your customers’ workflow or improving your day-to-day operation, will steer your marketing activity in the right direction.
We will address the relationship between social impact and business results at our online event, Re: Brand Couch Conference. Connect to listen to Rich Pierson, Co-Founder and CEO of Headspace, discuss what offering free access to your mindfulness app can mean for your business. With a company mission to improve the health and happiness of the world, can doing the right thing for the community also be a victory for the company?
