Investing In Emotional Bonds To Find The Missing Multiplier

As consumers, we all feel the impact of the emotional bonds we have with certain brands.

We tell stories about them. We defend them with our friends. We forgive them when they get things wrong. In fact, we’re often reluctant to think they actually did get things wrong, preferring to blame someone else we’re less bonded to (e.g. our mobile network, rather than our phone brand) or simply forget that anything happened.

The same is true if we are a business customer. Among many different statements about B2B brands tested in research, the one most strongly correlated with recommendation — above statements about price, product quality, innovation, and so on — is “I enjoy doing business with them.” We’ve found this consistently in B2B sectors from hi-technology to commodity chemicals.
