  12. 12. “ The Reality of the New Media World 
 is that if your brand does not have a belief, if it does not have a soul and does not correctly architect its messages everywhere it touches consumers, it can become irrelevant. It can be ignored, or even become a focal point for online contempt.” – lee clow, chairman and global director, tbwaworldwide
  13. 13. A brand can be any noun (person, place, or thing) that needs someone else to take action (purchase, promote, advocate, and so on). ! A brand does this by creating a series of IDEAS and TOUCH POINTS that build a larger message which draws the desired party close, engages them emotionally, and inspires them to take action.
