The Power Of The Human Brand

This is a post I wrote a couple of years ago for my “professional” blog that I think gives some insight into why I do what undo for a living: strategic research, foresight brand strategy.

The narcissist in me is sure you are intensely curious. ;). But more importantly its actually a more common pint of view among the people who work in this business than you would think.

P.S. “psychographic” is a term related to a demographically driven psychological point of view. A data point marketers sometimes characterize their customers by or measure to understand more about their customers.

Here we go:

One of the things I enjoy most about the practice of global branding is the idea of the hunt for unifying inspiration and communication.

A sustainable global brand can not only be VERY profitable, but also has the unique power to create common culture and nurture trends and make people think. With that comes a great deal of responsibility and endless possibilities.

I enjoy looking forward to the possibilities and helping to drive innovation in brands that is not only sustainable to the brand, but sustainable to humanity and to the world.

One thing that drives me is the idea that global brands can help to unify humans; to serve as a commonality beyond race and age and economics, beyond demographics and psychographics.

I believe that we all share some pretty big “psychographics”, no matter who you are or where you live. I know this as an empirical fact. We are, after all, in the business of studying humans: behavior, motivations, culture creation and dissemination.

I also believe that the more we communicate to and with one another, the broader our circle of shared “psychographics” can get, which will ultimately make the world smaller, and all humans more familiar.

It is acceptance and internalization of this familiarity that can help all humans work together to make this world better, and make our role in it more productive and sustainable as a human race.

Who know’s what potential lies if we all work together as a “we” and there eventually are no “others”. Possibilities are endless…which means we all have a purpose.

I choose to use the power of the brand.

Being a popular kid isn't easy,you have to be cautious about every move of yours because you know that all eyes are on you.Not just the eyes that look up to you but also the eyes that love to see you in pain.You might have your own list of followers but with this list there exists the "popularity starved crowd" who wants to replace you.But when reality bites these morons and they're back to square one,hurt and angry with themselves they try to make you the victim of their moment of high adrenaline,just to make you suffer because you're better.They try to clean their head by ruining your perfect life.What's more is right then you realize that none of your "friends" are what they appear to be.You're broken,depressed .You feel the need to talk to someone of your own kind,someone who won't judge you and that's when you can find me at thepopularitébug,I promise to do anything and everything to help you out of your problem!Amen.
