As the recent Tiger Woods scandal illustrates, brand reputation is more precarious than ever before. True and false information spreads like wildfire in the vast and interconnected social media landscape and even the most venerable brands can be leveled in a flash—by disgruntled customers, competing companies, even internal sources. Here, veteran marketing executive Jonathan Copulsky shows companies and individuals how to play brand defense in the twenty-first century. Five Signs that You Need to Pay More Attention to the Possibility of Brand Sabotage: A group of uniformed employees posts embarrassing YouTube videos, in which they display unprofessional attitudes towards their work. One of your senior executives publicly blames a supplier for product defects, even though they predate your relationship with the supplier. Your competitor's ads trumpet their solution to the performance problems associated with your most recent product. A customer unhappy with changes made to your product design launches a Facebook group, which attracts 5,000 fans. Your outsource partner is prominently featured in numerous blogs and websites describing allegations of worker mistreatment and workplace safety hazards.

The secret to movement marketing? Your customers want to make a difference “Scott Goodson and his StrawberryFrog colleagues have found the secret to plugging into Purpose with a capital P: find out what moves people to action, then create a way to support and enhance that movement with your product, service, or craft. I call that a winning strategy.” —Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive and A Whole New Mind “Want to change your customers’ buying habits? Want to change the world? Stop marketing, read this book, roll up your sleeves, and start a movement.” —Sally Hogshead, author of Fascinate and creator of HowToFascinate.com “Essential stuff. One of the smartest thinkers on branding on one of the most important developments in that critical intersection between culture and marketing.” —Adam Morgan, author of Eating the Big Fish and The Pirate Inside “A well-researched and insightful book that will hopefully spark a movement against traditional, stodgy marketing. A must-read for the new generation of marketers who will be defining tomorrow’s marketing landscape.” —Boutros Boutros, Senior Vice President, Emirates Airline About the Book: Movement marketing is changing the world. It’s the new way forward for anyone trying to win customers’ loyalty, influence public opinion, and even change the world. In Uprising, Scott Goodson, founder and CEO of StrawberryFrog, the world’s first cultural movement agency, shows how your idea or organization can successfully ride this wave of cultural movements to authentically connect to the lives and passions of people everywhere. We are in the midst of a profound cultural transformation in which technology is making it easier than ever for anyone to share ideas, goals, and interests. Working with companies and brands ranging from SmartCar to Pampers to Jim Beam to India’s Mahindra Group, StrawberryFrog and Goodson have led a paradigm focal shift away from one-on-one selling to sharing.

He then applies these insights to practical steps that you can take right now to reach people through what matters most to them, including: Stop talking about yourself—let the movement control your message Home in on the core objectives of your concept or brand—and align these values with what people are for (or against) “Light the spark”—create a culture within your organization that can embrace and drive a movement Leverage your assets—content, events, expertise, connecting platforms—to give people tools to spread your gospel Adjust concepts to travel across borders and link people across cultural boundaries The examples and guidance in this book will prepare you to find, connect to, and even lead the next big movement. What happens next is up to you. Get up. Go out. And create a brand Uprising of your own.

Design, Build, and Accelerate Your Brand

A fundamental paradigm shift has occurred in marketing and branding. Today the most successful CEOs, executives, entrepreneurs and enterprises set their sites on developing a long-term platform instead of a short-term strategy that supports and builds buzz for their personal or business brand. That’s really the key to the new business mindset — the recognition that branding and marketing are an ongoing, steady stream of small efforts, not a series of gigantic pushes. Social media, blogging and other business development activities — both online and off — are about the persistent, ongoing process of building a platform, creating credibility and increasing the number of people that you funnel into your potential client and network pipeline. Converting those people into clients or fans may take a month, a year or two years, but the new mindset leads you to strategies that will keep that pipeline full. In short, you need to start a bunch of small fires to keep your brand burning hot. How can today’s CEOs, executives and entrepreneurs keep these fires going and powerfully get their messages across, motivate others to action and be authentic — all while simultaneously shepherding initiatives from creation to implementation in high-demand markets? CEO, executive and team branding are key factors that enable effective leaders to achieve peak performance, gain greater influence in their industries and generate increased engagement within their companies. By creating a brand (business or personal) by design instead of default, leaders and companies bring their brand promise into every interaction across the board. A personal, team or business brand is not just a single statement or a clever quip but a multilayered, congruent narrative told across multiple channels — online and off — within the organization and to the business community at large. The power is in knowing how to tell the story. The book will introduce CEOs and executives in Fortune 500 companies and entrepreneurs in SMBs to the SMG Brand Mapping Process©, a process that will guide them in creating personal, team and business brands that work in harmony and parallel with each other.
