The step by step approach to becoming a ‘hot’ brand:

  1. Hot brands understand their customers better by knowing WHY the customers want what they want.
  2. They deliver the promise by creating a conversation-creating experience.

Keep your brand ‘hot’ by
  1. Listening continuously to feedback – especially from the unhappy customers. Think of that as an opportunity to improve the brand promise
  2. Be authentic – if you make a mistake, acknowledge it and pull out all stops to fix it
  3. Be courageous – do what is good for the consumer
3. Technological boom is the talk of the town. More and more brands are investing in automation tools, AI and content marketing to name a few. How do you think technology can keep a brand hot?
