Today's brands face an apparent choice between two evils: continue betting on their increasingly ineffective advertising or put blind faith in the supposedly mystical power of social media, where "likes" stand in for transactions and a mass audience is maddeningly elusive. There has to be a better way...As Lennon and McCartney wrote a half century ago, money can't buy you love. But in today's world, where people have become desensitized - even disillusioned - by ad campaigns and marketing slogans, that maxim needs an update: Money can't even buy you more

Review quote

This is a fabulous book that describes a revolutionary new vision for marketing, the Relationship Era, based on purpose, authenticity, trust and care. Written in an easy-to-read style and full of interesting stories, this book is both inspiring and fun. I give it my highest recommendation. John Mackey, founder and co-CEO, Whole Foods This book is funny, a bit profane and utterly profound. At Patagonia, we cherish our relationships, but these guys have located and explained dimensions of the Relationship Era that opened my eyes and mind. What an enjoyable and enlightening journey. Casey Sheahan, CEO, Patagonia "Can t Buy Me Like "speaks clearly to the challenges every CEO and CMO is confronting. It identifies the collapse of mass marketing as we have known it and provides example after example of how successful companies build trust in the new world. Ron Shaich, founder, chairman and co-CEO, Panera Bread The digital and social revolution has challenged even the most sophisticated marketers among us. But thankfully Garfield and Levy have given us a much needed blueprint for thriving in this new relationship era of marketing. This is the book I don t want my competitors to read. Eric Ryan, cofounder, Method, and author of "The Method Method" At last! Garfield and Levy have delivered a manifesto on what really matters to brands today: honest relationships. They do so by focusing not on our shiny social technologies but on the fundamentally changed relationship between business and customer in a world that looks less like a megaphone and much more like a network. Read this book; then challenge your business to live by it! David Rogers, author of "The Network Is Your Customer" "Can t Buy Me Like "compellingly captures one of the biggest trends of our time. If there is a gap between a business s image and its reality, it will soon be found out and the business will be punished for it. Using their in-depth industry knowledge in this beautifully written and immensely readable book, Garfield and Levy describe in detail how to succeed in the new world. David Jones, global chief executive officer, HAVAS, and author of "Who Cares WIns" Garfield and Levy show how smart, conscious marketers can leverage today s extraordinary technologies to build authentic relationships with customers based on trust, authenticity and shared purpose. This book will usher in a new renaissance in which the marketing function can finally fulfill its own largely unrealized higher purpose. Raj Sisodia, coauthor of "Conscious Capitalism "and "Firms of" "Endearment," marketing professor, Bentley University At Zappos, relationships have always been a top priority. "Can t Buy Me Like "explores why this is so important for all companies. Garfield and Levy smartly describe how to build relationships with customers, vendors and employees to create an extraordinary business.
