Brian Thomas Collins has made a career out of creating brand experiences, “a few of them great”. He writes:
“A good brand experience is when a brand does what we expect of it. A great brand experience is something we tell someone else about.

It’s not a campaign. It’s not the idea of something. It is something, something worth writing home about – or at least texting a friend. Brand awareness and engaged consumers are happy by-products, but not the point. The test for a great brand experience is result. Something new created. Something changed. A bell that can’t be un-rung.”
