Back once again with April’s edition of Monthly Muse.

A book I’m currently reading

“Better Brand Health: Measures and Metrics for a How Brands Grow World” by Jenni Romaniuk

Description: The book is about brand health tracking, one of the biggest (and most costly) sources of insights about brand performance and inputs into brand strategy that marketers engage in. But yet most trackers were designed pre-How Brands Grow, and so suffer from being not fit for purpose to provide insights to managers looking to grow their brands.

A brand/marketing lesson I’ve learned

A brand marketer’s natural instinct is to ensure every marketing material that goes out into the world is wonderfully well produced.

However, at the very top of the funnel — particularly in social media — production quality can reasonably be traded off in favour of production quantity which provides greater opportunities for brand reach.
