  • Does A Brand's Purpose Really Impact Sales? by George Simpson (MediaDailyNews on 11/15/2018)

    You're missing the point. Brand purpose is not a one-off campaign for charity, social corporate responsibility, or philanthropy -- it's a brand's reason to exist beyond selling things. Purpose guides every strategic business decision, from customer experience and product development to hiring and employee engagement. In effecting change for the greater good, purpose-led brands improve their customers' lives, attract high-quality talent, produce better, more powerful creative, etc. And in doing so, they drive customer trust, goodwill, and, yes, growth. Consider: A study by Kantar Consulting found that purpose-led brands have seen their brand valuation increase by 175 percent over past 12 years, compared to a median growth rate of 86 percent. As BlackRock CEO Larry Fink said, “To prosper over time, every company must not only deliver financial performance, but also show how it makes a positive contribution to society."
