YETI brings a light touch to its entertainment products, which is a welcome relief from the gratuitous use of product and logo placements seen in lesser productions. Nervous CMOs look for ROI. YETI is playing the long game.
Austin-based YETI wants increased products sales like every manufacturer, but YETI also wants to own the premium space in the outdoorsman’s mind. To do that a consumer brand needs a lot more than price promotions and the advertising of old. Winning brands now captivate audiences with serial storytelling, which stimulates the imaginations of people who pay with their attention first, and their wallets second.
