The Brand Flip: Why Customers Now Run Companies and How to Profit from It

By Marty Neumeier
Best-selling brand expert Marty Neumeier shows you how to make the leap from a company-driven past to the consumer-driven future. You ll learn how to flip your brand from offering products to offering meaning, from value protection to value creation, from cost-based pricing to relationship pricing, from market segments to brand tribes, and from customer satisfaction to customer empowerment. In the 13 years since Neumeier wrote "The Brand Gap," the influence of social media has proven his core theory: A brand isn t what "you" say it is it s what "they" say it is. People are no longer consumers or market segments or tiny blips in big data. They don t "buy" brands. They "join" brands. They want a vote in what gets produced and how it gets delivered. They re willing to roll up their sleeves and help out not only by promoting the brand to their friends, but by contributing content, volunteering ideas, and even selling products or services. At the center of the book is the Brand Commitment Matrix, a simple tool for organizing the six primary components of a brand. Your brand community is your tribe. How will you lead it?"

Marty Neumeier started his career as a designer, later adding writing and publishing to his list of credits. He has written eight books on brand, strategy, innovation, and company culture.

His first book, The Brand Gap, was conceived as a “whiteboard overview”—a highly visual book designed to be read on a short plane flight. It became an instant bestseller, hitting the top ten on Amazon in the first month. An online version has been viewed over 22 million times since then.

A second whiteboard overview, Zag, was named one of the “top 100 business books of all time.” He quickly followed Zag with three books on design thinking: The Designful CompanyMetaskills, and The 46 Rules of Genius.

During his five-decade career, he has worked closely with innovative companies such as Apple, Sun Microsystems, Adobe, Netscape, Microsoft, HP, and Google, helping them to advance their brands and cultures.

Today he serves as Director of CEO Brand for Liquid Agency, a Silicon Valley firm that designs branded cultures for large organizations. He travels extensively as a workshop leader and speaker on the topics of brand, innovation, and leadership. When he’s not traveling, he and his wife Eileen divide their time between California and southwest France. Connect with Marty on LinkedIn or subscribe to
