Many products and services are at parity on the surface. They are virtually indistinguishable to the buyer. This has profound implications for organizations trying to sell products, services and ideas.

How can YOUR brand stand out above all the others?

Daryl Travis’s new book, How Does It Make You Feel? Why Emotion Wins The Battle of Brands, discusses specific and tried-and-true insights for how brands can connect with customers on deep emotional levels in order to overcome challenges of being unrecognized in a cluttered, saturated market.

The book is available in digital format today on Amazon.

Deep understanding of customers’ emotions can transform a business and drive brand growth. Social science research techniques can give us insights that go far in developing powerful and lasting emotional connections with customers.

It is the emotional brand that serves its customers well and drives long-lasting loyalty and engagement.

Topics included in How Does It Make You Feel? are:

  • How to uncover people’s hidden motivations
  • The Six Brand Imperatives
  • Why branding really is brain surgery
  • The purpose-driven brand: Why it’s important to stand for something important

Would you invite me to your home and make me wait at the front door until you got around to answering it? Would you not take my coat or leave me sitting in the living room by myself for half an hour?
