As time moves onward, the rules of engagement between companies and the customers they want have changed dramatically. With shortening attention spans and a general disdain for traditional advertising such as in-your-face "buy me now" campaigns, brands need to be more attractive, treating the customer relationship as a long term courtship.
Adding to the challenge, the ever increasing pressure for brands to deliver engaging content has mounted as social media savvy users dominate the marketplace, looking for the products and services that appeal to them and quickly rejecting companies' attempts at wooing them with a hard sell. Developing an attractive brand that stands out is key to getting attention.
With The Pilot Group, the aim is to use bright colors and develop an authentic voice that focuses less on the features of the brand and more on its benefits to the consumer. Essentially, the goal is to clearly and beautifully answer the questions "What's in it for me and why should I care?" Companies that understand the importance of the why, have a greater chance at connecting.
"Brands can no longer just 'get by.'
Brands today must be relevant, distinct, real, definitive, and not entirely predictable.
Anything less demands an intervention."
David Brier — Brand Intervention
