In this groundbreaking book, media and marketing strategist Andrew M. Davis shows you how to partner with other brands and undiscovered talent to create content that drives demand for the products and services you sell. Brandscaping is a big, infectious idea—a new marketing methodology that begins with one simple observation: a rising tide lifts all ships. Davis dishes up dozens of case studies showing how all types of individuals, companies, and brands have tapped into the power of brandscaping to achieve unparalleled success, often using resources already at their disposal. What if you stopped renting time or space (“advertising”) and started investing in content—content that you’ll own? What if you tapped a trend or created a movement? What if you authentically embraced your most loyal fans? What if... you became a brandscaper? Successful brandscapers think more like television producers and less like marketers. In the new media world, everyone has an audience. No one needs the traditional media monarchies to access their audience anymore. Davis encourages you to reconsider your spend on advertising, forget about trying to obtain PR one-hit wonders, and start seeking out valuable replacements for inauthentic celebrity “endorsements.” Reinvest that money, he says, on creating valuable content and watch your marketing expenses turn into powerful content assets. Brandscaping trains you to unearth authentic, talented “spokespeople” in a world where everyone is a publisher, podcaster, YouTuber, or digital photographer; people whose existing audiences, no matter how small, will become your future customers. Davis demonstrates how electronics manufacturers, retailers, home builders, associations, non-profits, individuals, and many others have benefited from the ability to tap into the power of niche markets. Davis also shows you how to identify and appeal to the passion points that inspire digital influencers, prosumers, and consumers to take action. Your marketing will be more effective and you’ll fill your pipeline with higher-quality leads. Brandscaping will transform the way you market. Brandscaping is symbiotic marketing that can fund start-ups, aid non-profits, even change entire industries. Once you begin thinking like a brandscaper, you’ll be able to easily see the benefits of connecting computer consulting to game shows; insurance sales to motorcycle parts; ‘Foreman Grills to dorm-room cuisine; transportation professionals to hit television shows; backyard poultry to suburban hardware stores; watercraft sales to music videos; and so much more. In Brandscaping, you’ll uncover opportunity at every turn. Davis’ entertaining and artfully-crafted stories each deliver on a clear lesson and an optimistic business challenge to ask yourself, ‘what if?’ Brandscaping is both an intellectual exercise and a practical guide. It’s a refreshing, insightful take on how marketing and media will work together in the future. It is specifically crafted to be embraced by C-suite executives and implemented by savvy marketing professionals. Get ready to brandscape!

“One of the most mesmerizing and important books I’ve read in quite some time. Alter brilliantly illuminates the new obsessions that are controlling our lives and offers the tools we need to rescue our businesses, our families, and our sanity.” —Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Originals and Give and Take Welcome to the age of behavioral addiction—an age in which half of the American population is addicted to at least one behavior. We obsess over our emails, Instagram likes, and Facebook feeds; we binge on TV episodes and YouTube videos; we work longer hours each year; and we spend an average of three hours each day using our smartphones. Half of us would rather suffer a broken bone than a broken phone, and Millennial kids spend so much time in front of screens that they struggle to interact with real, live humans. In this revolutionary book, Adam Alter, a professor of psychology and marketing at NYU, tracks the rise of behavioral addiction, and explains why so many of today's products are irresistible. Though these miraculous products melt the miles that separate people across the globe, their extraordinary and sometimes damaging magnetism is no accident. The companies that design these products tweak them over time until they become almost impossible to resist. By reverse engineering behavioral addiction, Alter explains how we can harness addictive products for the good—to improve how we communicate with each other, spend and save our money, and set boundaries between work and play—and how we can mitigate their most damaging effects on our well-being, and the health and happiness of our children. Adam Alter's previous book, Drunk Tank Pink: And Other Unexpected Forces that Shape How We Think, Feel, and Behave is available in paperback from Penguin.
