IT'S TRICKY!

Increasingly brands are challenged to decide whether or notand howto become involved in today’s pressing social issues. Some may view this as risky, but it may be equally risky to ignore the large number of consumers who want to see brands take action.

Drawing on the opinions and behavior of more than 29,000 consumers, we build a snapshot mapping the territory that brands need to navigate as they consider the role and impact that Brand Purpose and Brand Activism have on their marketing strategy and business planning.

REWARD? OR PUNISHMENT!

The ultimate verdict on whether a consumer supports or opposes a brand happens when consumers make their purchase decisions.

We analyze consumer attributes associated with paying a premium for a brand—or deciding not to purchase a brand—because of agreement or disagreement over a brand’s stance on issues that are important consumers.

In a world where consumer feedback loops are rapid, digital and often unrelenting, knowing when and how to take a stand can be a key to brand success.
