Defying Essentials for Brands: Activist Branding

The Iconic Group LLC Presents “Rules to Brand By”: Covering Branding, Marketing and Publicity Techniques for all ICONS

Written by: The Branding Icon: Pamela Rosara Jones

Finding a cause that surges through the skepticism of today’s consumers is not an easy task. Actually, believing in that cause and infusing it into your brand identity is an even greater task that very few companies tackle. “Activist Branding” can best be described as a form of branding that defines, sustains, and embeds meaning and purpose into its culture. This means that not only does the stakeholders of the brand believe in the cause but it is also important for the consumers, employees and advertisers to be vested in the cause as well.  

 This type of passion develops a sense of humanism that many people become easily inspired by.  Catching the wave of purpose that the brand means to amplify should be beneficial to both parties. This takes significance and frequency on every level. Futuristically, brands are purposely leaning towards a more "millennial" approach of becoming more than just a product. But by actively seeking change and striving for what matters most. When choosing this method be prepared to engage in your message which could take away from your bottom line. Once understood, your brand should speak for itself.
