Key Takeaways from 'The State of the Story' 

1. We are living in an extremely polarized climate.

Research shows that there is a strong opposition between liberals and conservatives. Americans are increasingly clustering in like-minded communities, leading them to grow more extreme and enthusiastic in their beliefs and agreement.

2. Belief-driven buyers expect brands to contribute to social good.

Belief-driven buyers expect companies to positively impact society, not just make profits, and most Americans think brands and companies should act to influence social issues.

3. Mission-driven marketers are expected to have brands engage in important conversations and advocate appropriately.

Brands can be better “citizens” by listening to their communities, thinking back to their brand values, and tuning into cultural conversations.
