Brand Advocacy

To create social impact at scale, brands must advocate for broad-based efforts to support systemic change benefiting society at large. If brands miss the mark and use purpose only as a positioning tool, they risk their efforts being labelled as purpose-washing.

Consumers are, rightly so, increasing calling companies out on their purpose-washing activities.

Brands must step up.

What We Can Offer You

Advocacy Platform

We can help you set up a robust advocacy platform that brings together key stakeholders for co-creating solutions to the identified issue. This aims to scale up your behaviour change/social norms programme, increase funding for your purpose-led work and generate greater awareness of the social issue at hand.

Communication Strategy & Execution

We can guide you in how to do purpose-led advocacy right, advocating widely for your social mission and effectively communicating your purpose-led work in a way that avoids purpose-washing.

Brand advocacy can be understood on two levels:

  1. How brands advocate policy makers, public and private sector stakeholders around their purpose and social mission.  
  2. How a brand more generally communicates its purpose so that its consumers understand how they make a difference in the world, and its stakeholders understand how it contributes. 

Purpose-driven marketing, when done right, can create social impact that can improve millions of lives while simultaneously improving company competitiveness
