What is your brand?
Your brand. Is it the image you want people to see? Or is it the experience itself you can provide over and over again? Think Coca Cola, Maxwell House, Nike, Campbell’s Soup or Volkswagen. The images these brands left are self-experiential: where were you when you had your first coke? How do Campbell soups make you feel? Which coffee really is “good to the last drop”? What does a pleasurable driving experience feel like?
Google takes driving internet traffic and branding to a new state-of-the-art form, when a brand can focus its “image” as the engaging experience itself Be it entertainment or other, the point is to be authentically engaging.
