Why Everyone In Your Company Should Be the Brand Manager

How customers feel isn’t simply important to the marketing and sales department. Chief executives and their financial counterparts have a vital interest in customers’ feelings. It is the job of everybody in your company to court customers who have feelings that could turn him or her into loyal converts for your brand. That is why the most important answer you might ever seek is the answer to the title of my new book: How does it make you feel?

The fact is, we develop a deeper emotional response to the brands in our lives than our rational minds can fathom. It’s not always logical; sometimes it makes no rational sense. But above all, it is human.

What kind of emotional response does your favorite brand evoke? Or even, how a brand you dislike makes you feel. Please share here or on Twitter and tag your tweet with #HowDoesItMakeYouFeel or simply, #HDIMYF.

Daryl’s new book, How Does It Make You Feel? Why Emotion Wins The Battle of Brands, will be available for purchase digitally later this month on Amazon.com. Follow HDIMYF updates on Twitter @BTCEO and @Brandtrust!

The Scarlet “S” of Segmentation

Looking at how brands affect our subconscious thoughts and feelings provide refreshing insights for all marketers who want to better understand what makes you, me, and the rest of the world tick. Not just for profit but for the sheer fun of getting to know ourselves and our customers as human beings. We are not Affluent Singles, or (my favorite horror) DINKS, meaning Double Income No Kids. These kinds of pigeon holes are artificial designations, known as “segmentations,” to make marketing seem easier, but they lump us into amorphous masses that simply do not align with the way we think of ourselves, our families, or friends and neighbors.

Brands are a Form of Self-Expression

When I say brands are about feelings, not facts, I’m proposing once again that people make buying decisions based on how what they are buying makes them feel. Does it make them feel more confident, secure, cool, pretty, smart, savvy, or happy? Does it represent their values? Would their friends approve? What do their choices say about them as people?

What’s In A Name?

Learning to distinguish things by name is one of the first cognitive skills we master. As infants, our first language lessons are identifying people and objects by name—“mommy,” “daddy,” “bottle.” When we say a new name, mommy praises how smart we are. It’s no wonder we like names and naming.
