Empathetical Branding

Brands address the struggles associated with modern life to form bonds

Implications - As consumers grow weary from constantly being sold in the overwhelming marketplace, brands are adopting a more empathetic approach to marketing that shows a sense of compassion for the woes associated with modern life. The tried and true method of marketing a problem before offering a solution is ditched for honesty-focused campaigns that create bonds on a more wholesome level to create a lasting relationship. With a customer base less interested in a fleeting brand than ever, the approach is more in-line with the friendship notion craved by individualistic shoppers.
