6 key lessons Steve Jobs and Apple have taught us about how to brand:
Show The Transformation: Apple products aren’t just cellphones, tablets, and laptops, etc. They represent the ability to do everything on the go and to also look like a boss while doing it!
Know Your Audience and Talk to Them in Their Language: Speak to them in a way that puts them at ease and removes confusion. Apple always sells with simple stories first and they never lead with specs or technical jargon.
Keep Your Marketing and Your Product Simple: Apple’s design, as well as its consumer experience, is free of clutter. Clean and simple is at the heart of both their products and experiences.
