CONNECT CMO Cult Following Community is Everything

Building brand around a tight-knit community has escalated over recent years, with both legacy and breakthrough brands enjoying loud successes from this strategy.  The pandemic brought with it a much-exaggerated need for connection, which has led to brands like SNUG & TRIP being able to really benefit from the perils of lockdown by developing cult followings where community is everything.

The relevant sessions at the CMO Leadership Summit this 9-11th October in London [insert link to website], will teach you how to not just grow your brand; but how to ensure your ‘followers’ engage in repeat transactions, react to your content and actually care about your products.

Our speakers on this topic include:

Introducing

Lauren Hannifan, Head of Brand, Snug

About Lauren

Lauren knows ‘community is everything’, which is why SNUG have formed such a close-knit group of likeminded cult followers.  The ‘sofa in a box company’ literally organises concerts and other exciting events for their consumers (their friends). Genius.

Snug too, enjoyed the fruits of the pandemic, whereby sales went up 340% in 2021 alone as they were able to boycott the supply chain issues of furniture products made further afield during the increased demand for home furnishings during Covid-19.
