Most business leaders, management teams, boards, and investors (similarly) are variously versed in conventional as well as generational methods and language to introduce and market favorable perceptions of a business’ operating culture, and/or a product, service, offering, launch, and/or transaction, etc.
We are obliged to recognize…
- how favorable and sustainable ‘perceptions’ can – do contribute to businesses valuation, standing, competitive advantage, and revenue generation capability-capacity.
- various ways which a single favorable perception or a series of sustainable perceptions are embedded in the 15+ types-categories of intangible asset.
To be sure, particular-intangible assets can be favorably – circumstantially introduced and leveraged for advantage when – where leaders recognize it is relevant to do so and with the expectation there will be a return-on-investment.
Noticeably, today, the target audience for businesses to introduce and/or claim a particular and/or favorable perception, even though same is often readily observable…
- should factor – include recognition of how – where target audiences may be inclined and/or accustomed to seeking and receiving such information, e.g., venue,medium, platform, source,and the message deliverer.
Each, we know, can variously influence (a.) message interpretation, and (b.) the strength – durability of the desired action and outcome (for the message and the messenger).
More specifically, the manner-in-which a messenger conveys their message and the platform (brand) in which it is received, are likely to include various forms and contexts of ‘attention drawing’ FUD factors…
- fears, uncertainties, and/or doubts which message deliverers elect to incorporate as having relevance to/for a circumstance and audience.
- that ‘message’ an impending risk and/or conceived reality warranting thought, consideration, and perhaps action consistent with the message.
We are obliged to recognize that FUD factors may be opportunistically – selectively (subliminally) inferred and/or applied as congruent encouragement for targeted audiences to do – not do something, e.g., stay-the-course, alter or ratchet-up a previous view, perspective, or perception, under-written with a favorable rationale for doing so, e.g., a particular-action.
Not-infrequently, FUD-factors are gratuitously – arbitrarily introduced to attract ‘viral’ attention, some of which may ideological.
I encourage business leaders, et al, to consider anything – everything today is subject to fact checking and real time monitoring @ keystroke and streaming speed.
Hence, all are (fiduciarily) obliged to consider how messaging + messengerscan favorably or unfavorably affect a business’s long standing and mission essential intangible assets, in advance, e.g., ways – how same may translate to/for targeted + viral audiences which may – may not be receptive.
