Sister Snog loves : Creating #brandsparkle for women

The way women think-&-behave is impacting business, causing a marketing shift away from a hierarchical model toward a relational one. My uber-truth is that women don’t buy brands, they join them – stated Faith Popcorn when she was interviewed by MarketingSherpa.
Brands women love
Many moons ago Sister Snog dipped into a book called EVEolution. In it, Faith Popcorn shared her view of ‘the eight truths’ behind creating a brand that appeals to women. That was way back in 2002 – yet these truths have remained at the forefront of the Sister Snog brand as it’s gone from infancy through to adolescence:

1.  Connecting your female consumers to each other connects them to your brand
2.  If you’re marketing to one of her lives, you’re missing all the others
3.  If she has to ask – it’s too late
4.  Market to her peripheral vision & she will see you in a whole new light
5.  Walk, run, go to her to secure her loyalty forever
6.  This generation of women consumers will lead you to the next
7.  Co-parenting is the best way to raise a brand
8.  Everything matters – you can’t hide behind a logo

A brand with heart-&-soul
Faith Popcorn’s book provided a brand blueprint that helped establish what Sister Snog wanted members to say about the brand when it wasn’t in the room. Another book – Lovemarks – captured the essence of the brand. Together these two inspirational reads formed the foundations of a strategy for establishing a set of values that lay at the head, heart & guts of the brand. But emotional connection & engagement sits at the core. A living currency according to Carole Bozkurt from The Blueprint Practice:
