Marty Neumeier – ZAG

“When everybody zigs, zag,” says Marty Neumeier in this fresh view of brand strategy. Zag follows the ultra-clear “whiteboard overview” style of the author’s first book, The Brand Gap, but drills deeper into the question of how brands can harness the power of differentiation.

The author argues that in an extremely cluttered marketplace, traditional differentiation is no longer enough – today companies need “radical differentiation” to create lasting value for their shareholders and customers.

In an entertaining listen you’ll learn:

Why me-too brands are doomed to fail

How to “read” customer feedback on new products and messages – the 17 steps for designing “difference” into your brand- how to turn your brand’s “onliness” into a “trueline” to drive synergy

The secrets of naming products, services, and companies

The four deadly dangers faced by brand portfolios

How to “stretch” your brand without breaking it

How to succeed at all three stages of the competition cycle.

Overall, the book basically tells you to think about your business actions and don’t be a sheep following the crowd. Look for the other vertical no one is looking at. So when everybody zigs, you zag. It’ll give you that edge over the mass flock.
