Communication Chasm: Brand Wins, Missed Opportunities in Engaging Consumers on Purpose

Stop Selling, Start Mobilizing: The Rise of Movement Brands

4 years ago - The relationship between brands and people is being transformed before our very eyes; the old-fashioned, binary model of companies selling and people consuming is dead. Traditional, rigid hierarchies of control are being replaced with more fluid and open peer-to-peer networks. We are rapidly adopting the principles of a sharing economy as the mainstream norm and there is a new world order forming.
