10 Books Every Marketer Should Read in 2016
Posted at 03th of Mar, 15:30

Today is World Book Day, in celebration of all that is readable, analog or, as is increasingly common, digital. An interesting study was conducted several years ago in which a group of economists studied data on what factors in childhood lead to greater success for the subjects when they reached adulthood. To the surprise of many, it wasn’t how rich their parents were, the colour of their skin, whether the parents stayed married or divorced, the quality of the neighborhood they grew up in, or even the schools they attended.

 

The data pointed the researchers to an interesting correlation: the most successful people in the study, of all backgrounds, shared a single commonality while growing up that the comparison group of less successful subjects did not: they had a greater number of and ease of access to books at home than other households.

You’ve already perfected your brand identity and story, and now it's time to translate your narrative into captivating visuals that complete your whole package. A powerful design has best impact when narrating the story of your brand. If your design makes an impression, audience bonding will come naturally.

What value does your brand add to the customer?What makes your brand authentic?What reaction does your brand attempt to evoke?

How these factors are expressed through your design will be crucial in passing on the core identity of your brand and allowing consumers to connect, and result having them feeling satisfied and wanting more. Developing brand attributes through your designs, while keeping them very simple will allow your consumer to recognize you and become familiar with what your brand stands for; be it in in stores, online, through advertising, or anywhere else.
