A recent study in the potato chips category with PepsiCo threw up critical learnings that we leveraged to create a refreshed way of looking at brand purpose, in the form of 'brand citizenship'. We also looked at examples from other studies that we have done as well as desk research, to understand how the concept of 'purpose' itself is changing in meaning across all spheres of life ? not just in the choices of brands, but also political affiliations and life decisions. Our explorations helped construct the brand citizenship framework, which we believe adds a further layer to existing models of brand purpose and, in turn, could result in more effective purpose-driven marketing.
