Resources for Purpose-Driven Brands

It's not enough to just say that you care about an issue. When you commit to doing something about it, is when you build trust with your audience.

78% of Americans believe companies must do more than just make money; they must positively impact society as well. source

Consumers today expect brands to share their impact through all touchpoints. If you're going to create any real impact and have people believe in your mission, they need to see you walking your talk to believe in your brand, even if you're just starting out making small efforts. Or, if you're an established brand that wants to refocus or shift your values, you'll want to share that with your audience too.

Here are some resources to help inspire you to make decisions (if you haven't already done so) on how to take action, and do it.
