I've thought a lot what is and isn't a brand, and what factors define a brand in the minds of others.

I dedicated a whole chapter of Captivology to the psychology of framing -- how our attention can radically change based on how something is presented. If someone this perceived to be scarce, for example, we subconsciously attribute more value to that item. 

In the case of brands, perception really does become reality. A brand really is just a perception, positive or negative, of a person or company. 

Luckily, we have the power to frame those conversations and steer perceptions, which is what I talk about in more detail in today's video. I'd love to hear your thoughts in comments on the subject of brands and what is a brand.

Check out this amazing Captivology infographic by +Valary Oleinik! It's a quick summary of the principles of my book.

Thank you, Valary!

Condensed Captivology: The Science of Capturing People's Attention by Ben Parr into this infograph to keep the ideas handy. It is a good reminder but can't capture everything from the book. Check it out for an excellent mix of examples and research. I got a number of ideas from the book and a list of things I want to dig into further, so I call this quick read, time well spent.___Check out this amazing Captivology infographic by +Valary Oleinik!

Friends,

Last year, my partners Matt, Mazy and I invested in a startup called Shots. Most people know it as the selfie app backed by Justin Bieber, but it has become so, so much more. 

Now, after its $8.5M Series A and growth to 5+ million users, I want to talk about the reasons why Dominatefund​ backed this company, and how its mission to prevent bullying and promote positivity resonated with us.
