The old brand model, which advocated the creation of an external brand image to influence consumers, is a thing of the past. We think it’s time to do things differently. So, we wrote this whitepaper drawing upon the anthropological concept of culture to introduce a new model for brands. We argue that its time for true values to replace the external brand image. In other words, looking good is no longer enough. To compete in today’s fast paced landscape, brands must be better from the inside out. We call this new model Brand Culture—and we think it has the potential to transform companies into truly amazing brands.
