3 Highlights from Morin's Augment Class

  1. On Brand Equity: “Brand equity is the level of recognition and sway that a brand name has in the minds of consumers. It’s the value of having a brand that is both identifiable and well regarded. The value of a product with brand equity is seen as greater than that of a brand without it, even if both products are identical.”
  2. On Brand Point of View (POV): “Having a strong brand POV increases relatability. It humanizes your brand, and gives it some personality so that customers can create a bond, an emotional connection, with your product and your company. At a very basic level, having a Brand POV sends a compelling message that helps you attract attention.”
  3. On Mentorship: “Finding a mentor is kind of like dating. You need to learn about the person and their personality — build and nurture the relationship over a long period of time. The mentor-mentee relationship evolves organically. Do not ask someone to be your mentor. Don’t try to make it official. Instead, focus on building a deep and lasting connection with the people you admire and to whom you look up.”
