Big corporations might have huge marketing and advertising budgets but you’ve got a story. Your brand story isn’t just what you tell people. It’s what they believe about you based on the signals your brand sends. ‘The Fortune Cookie Principle’ is a brand building framework and communication strategy consisting of 20 keys that enable you to begin telling your brand’s story from the inside out. It’s the foundation upon which you can differentiate your brand and make emotional connections with the kind of clients and customers you want to serve.

The most successful brands in the world don’t behave like commodities and neither should you. A great brand story will make you stand out, increase brand awareness, create customer loyalty and power profits. Isn’t it time to gave your customers a story to tell? ‘The Fortune Cookie Principle’ will show you how.

ADVANCE PRAISE FOR THE FORTUNE COOKIE PRINCIPLE

“It’s so easy to overcomplicate what great brands and new businesses need to do to resonate with their consumers. The simple questions asked in this book help you to de-mystify that process. It encourages you to think beyond what you do to why you do it and why that matters to your customers. Had this been available when I was driving Sales and Marketing Capabilities in my past corporate life at Cadbury Schweppes, this would have been recommended reading. Now I’m an entrepreneur I simply apply these principles each and every day.”

Wendy Wilson Bett—Co-Founder Peter’s Yard

“Yes, you need a great product, but without a compelling story, success is improbable. The ‘Fortune Cookie Principle’ is an easy-to-read guide that will help any marketer or business owner begin to ask the right questions about the stories they tell. Bernadette includes dozens of examples and questions to get your storytelling ship in the right order. Let’s face it…telling compelling stories to attract and retain customers is not easy. Most brand marketers are not great storytellers. This book will give you a new perspective on your marketing, and help you move from talking about yourself to talking about things your customers actually care about. Then, and only then, will your marketing actually work in today’s consumer-led economy.”

Joe Pulizzi—Founder Content Marketing Institute
