So you’re a purpose-driven brand. Or would like to be.

Congratulations. You have completed the first step in a rewarding journey. Not only do purpose-driven communications make you feel good about your brand, they also make your consumer feel good about your brand. And when consumers feel good about your brand they are more likely to interact with it. Now the real fun begins.

See, we’re not the only ones who think so. Let us explain further.

Brands with a higher sense of purpose grow twice as fast as those with a lower sense of purpose

If you asked around ten years ago if a company’s ethos made a difference in a consumer’s purchase decision, ten out of ten marketers would have chimed in with a resounding, “NO!” But the climate has shifted for the better and brands are paying attention to these new consumer expectations. Not only is it creating more positive brand affinity, it is also creating more engagement, sales and profits.

High 175%
Medium 86%
Low 70%

After nearly two decades of media buying on behalf of a variety of clients, the difference is clear. We are able to negotiate better rates, added-value and editorial coverage for clients whose message serves a higher purpose. The difference equates to an average of 30% more bang for our clients’ media buck.

Most times it’s not good to be a follower. We’re going to give you a pass on this one though. 232 out of the largest 250 companies believe that it is important to be socially responsible as a company. And because companies with a high sense of purpose grow faster than those without, it’s no surprise to see them occupying the top spots.
