Starbucks Tribal Knowledge

To follow up on Seth Godin’s Tribes book that I have just finished , here is a great presentation on branding. It describes in a few very well designed slides how the mythical Starbucks Coffee company built its brand from scratch by creating a powerful tribes of supporters. The slides are self-explanatory and do reprensent a excellent starting point to anyone trying to leverage on the new marketing tools to build their brand on the Tribes principles. This presentation also complements very well the Infopresse conference (Journée Infopresse360) Seth gave last week in Montreal.

If you want to live and breathe the Starbucks experience without leaving your screen, you can follow them on Twitter here.

To complement, I recommend you this interview with Seth Godin with LesAffaires. The interview is done in English but there are French subtitles. He basically sums up the Tribes principles and highlights why it’s important for organizations to build their tribes to sustain.–strategie/2009-04-23/492269/
