Editorial Reviews

Review

"Zain demonstrates the critical need to understand the importance of creating and sustaining Brand Rituals and offers insight into the strategic approach to do so." --Julie Gardner, EVP, Chief Marketing Officer, Kohl's Department Stores

"Zain's insights on the need for brands to create deeper, more meaningful and reciprocal relationships with consumers should serve as a wake-up call for many marketers. Traditional loyalty metrics are clearly not effective at gauging sustainable brand commitment. Aspiring to form true bonds with our consumers should be our aspiration, rather than simply patting ourselves on the back for driving frequency." --Lee D. Applbaum, EVP, Chief Marketing Officer, RadioShack Corporation

"Zain reaches into the future with such zeal and discipline that you can't help but want to go on the journey with him. His insights about how Brand Rituals fit into our everyday life and how he puts the idea of ritual to work for your brands are nothing short of exciting." --Dana Anderson, SVP, Marketing, Strategy, & Communications, Kraft Foods

At Hyper Marketing, everything revolves around changing consumer behavior and driving transactions.

I always get a nugget or two of new learning from books like this one but found myself bogged down more than usual trying to read it. Not the most exciting read ever for me.

Reading the BrandRituals by Zain Raj was a refreshing change from other books on Marketing, especially for a strategic planner. Here is a book that puts the focus on the consumer.
Today, marketers no longer hold the key to a brand's success. This has passed on to the hands of the empowered consumer. With so many options to choose from; countless promotions and discounts thrown at them, what would make a consumer choose your brand every time over others? BrandRituals introduces and elaborates on the concept of "Mindfulness: and how it is one of the things that can differentiate your brand and move it along to a state of "brand-bonded relationship" with your consumer. A must read book on every agency account planners' list.

Like any compelling story, Brand Rituals begins by scaring the hell out of the reader. Especially if you don't let go of the enduring myths and misconceptions author Zain Raj tackles in the third chapter. Essentially, Mr. Raj convincingly proves that if your brand doesn't create a deeper, more meaningful and reciprocal relationship with your consumer, your profits will fall even faster than your relevance.

A deeply bonded relationship is required, as people are much less brand loyal and are more indifferent to advertising than ever before. But what's even scarier is that the valuations of brands in stock price have steadily increased (even allowing for the recent nosedive in stocks). Hence, without heeding Mr. Raj's approach to creating (and sustaining) Brand Rituals, you can believe that the brand bubble will be the next to pop.

There is plenty of hope and optimism for creating an upward trajectory for your brand, though. In following Mr. Raj's thoughtful and revolutionary insights, your brand can create a constant sense of interest and excitement. In doing so, consumers will sense that your brand moves faster, sees farther, and is highly experiential and more responsive to future needs.

Simply put: the more energy a brand has, the greater the consideration, loyalty, elasticity, pricing power, and brand value (as a percentage of firm value) it commands. By aligning your brand with your customer's values, you can deliver a new value equation . . . a direct link between brand momentum and creativity, financial earnings, and stock performance.

I found Brand Rituals to be one of the smartest and most thought-provoking business books I have read in some time. It is intellectually challenging without being wonky.

Brand Rituals is an innovative look at how leading brands have evolved from focusing on branding and perception to successfully devoting themselves to consumer engagement, loyalty, and experience. Utilizing well-known brands and the experiences they provide, Raj breaks down and simplifies the complex principles of the brand experience. Brand Rituals clarifies how to approach Brand Rituals a brand as both a marketer and a smart consumer. I highly recommend.
