“Stop! In the name of love, before you break my branding…” Wait, that’s not right. Okay, we know the great Diana Ross sings “heart,” not branding, but roll with us. 

In the hustle and bustle of making sales, we forget it’s easier to convert a fan than it is a stranger. A stranger may have an interest in hearing benefits or find curiosity in a sale. After your pitch, the stranger will most likely be skeptical and show little commitment.

Where it may take more effort to maintain a relationship with your fans, this strategy is a more affordable and sustainable approach, plus produces unfailing commitment. That’s what makes the effort for brand love worth it. 

Still unsure? Talkwalker has the proof to back the power of brand love with their latest report. They found deploying a brand love strategy tends to bring price premiums, brand loyalty, and brand advocacy. Let’s learn how we build it.

The Kiwiburger Song 2020

Some jingles and songs can easily become outdated. Everything has its day, but an update is often due. Without these updates we would all be living in the past. So out with the old, and in with the new!
