EVERY INDUSTRY AROUND THE GLOBE IS BEING COMPLETELY DISRUPTED. STALWART BRANDS ARE LOSING MARKET SHARE TO UPSTARTS THAT CAPTURE OUR COLLECTIVE CONSCIOUSNESS. TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS ARE AT STAKE.
Brands know a new approach is needed. But most don’t realize the strategic underpinnings need to change. Great brands are no longer built through interruptive advertisements. Friction argues that brands don't simply need clever messages or new, shiny technologies. They need a fundamental change in strategy.
Friction provides a system for embracing transparency, engaging audiences, creating evangelists, and unleashing unprecedented growth.
"Great brands are built, not bought."
