The Power of Unpopular: A Guide to Building Your Brand for the Audience Who Will Love You (and why No One Else Matters)
Being popular sucks.
Somewhere along the way, business owners got the idea they had to be popular in order to be successful, when, in fact, the opposite is true. Every successful brand in history—from corporate behemoths to your neighborhood coffee shop—is vastly unpopular with a distinct demographic, yet succeeds wildly with the right audience. Isn't it time to rethink "unpopular"? In The Power of Unpopular, you'll discover what the world's greatest innovators have always known: popular is the last thing you ever want to build a business to be.
Stop focusing your brand-building on groups who will never like you and learn how to identify the audience you want to serve. The Power of Unpopular simply—and bluntly—explains concepts that you can immediately graft onto your existing business strategies:
Featuring real businesses from across the globe, this irreverent guide couples theory with practice, blazing pathways that businesses of any size or age can follow. Becoming unpopular shows you who you are and what you have to offer—and lets you tell all the naysayers to shove it.
Change the way you do business and live your life—become unpopular.
