  3. 3. Know customers as an individual And if we don’t already, we design our interactions to get to know them better. Make them lean forward Always get the customer to lean forward, participate and engage with the brand – never just have them sit back and receive. Show them what’s next Brands invest a lot of money in establishing the initial contact. That investment is wasted if the first encounter is not turned into a more lasting relationship. “We sell, or else.”

  14. 14. What does all this mean?
  15. 15. 1. Know exactly what the brand’s primary business goal is and how you need to the consumer to engage to accomplish it. Only develop content that leads towards this goal. 2. Use consumer data to define, dictate and develop messaging, calendars and distribution as it pertains to the exact point in your customer’s journey. 3. Take control of your Owned, Earned, Paid ecosystem – don’t let traditional behaviors lead. Three ways a brand can win with content
