Purpose marketing: making an impact

Consumers expect brands to take a stand. How does your organisation feel about the climate crisis? About systematic discrimination? The younger generations’ buyer behaviour is partially based on your organisation’s opinions. In other words, it’s about time you started focusing on purpose marketing.

What is purpose marketing?

You can prepare your organisation for tomorrow’s consumer in different ways. You could go for a digital transformation, have a rigid focus on your customer, improve the quality of your products or services.

But you could also focus on purpose – and that goes beyond CSR. Purpose isn’t just about what you do, but about how you do it. It’s about the value you add to society as an enterprise. It’s an ideal that’s ingrained in your brand, a goal you actively work towards.

In short, purpose marketing is:

  • commit yourself to a social theme…

  • that fits your brand values and vision…

  • for the right reasons …

  • not to make a profit.
