3 places to find your brand’s ‘good.’

If you are just beginning to define the most compelling “good” to make known for your brand, here are three places to start.

Almost every brand has invested in its supply chain recently, whether optimizing growing and sourcing, innovating manufacturing and production, or reducing packaging and water consumption. All these investments provide a story of “good” your audience wants to hear. What latent assets lie in your brand’s supply chain?

Long ago, the food community learned the power of partnerships to stretch budgets and accelerate results. Today, these relationships often focus on purpose. Public-private partnerships and large-scale industry affiliations along the supply chain can enable social good. Where has your brand partnered? Where might it?

Brand stories form whether you nurture them or not. Simple desktop searches or more extensive audits reveal what people already say about your brand. This can help identify untapped opportunities and suggest new ones that align with your audiences’ values. Who is already talking about your brand and what are they saying?
