As influencer marketing evolves, Brian Solis continues to analyse the data, evaluate the current practice and predict its evolution. He says, “Influence 2.0 is an incredible opportunity for marketers to think differently about customer experience to fast track the inevitable changes that digital business presents. Marketers must reimagine their role as a central driver of organisational change, output, and impact by connecting with customers in more genuine and useful ways and channels they trust and value.”
For this executive strategy journal, Brian Solis explains why companies must shift from product-centric strategies to cultivating outstanding experiences to remain competitive.
Brian Solis is a highly sought after authority on customer experience. As a prominent industry leader, he was invited to be a featured guest author on the future of financial experiences for The Financial Brand.
Brian Solis, “There are thought leaders and then there are those who are exceptional at personal branding. There’s a difference. I was once asked what it took to be a thought leader; I answered, simply to have ideas or a perspective that are not only different but also provocative, inspiring, motivating or actionable. Being a thought leader is a title others give you, you earn it. It’s not something you bestow upon yourself.”
As an industry leader, Brian Solis was invited to write for CMO by Adobe on a customer’s micro-moments in mobile marketing. He says, “Don’t miss the moments that matter. We don’t just live in a mobile-first world; to engage consumers and drive growth, marketers need to now design for mobile-only engagement scenarios.”

When Snap made its move for Bitmoji last March, the app wasn’t yet available to Snapchat users. But it was popular enough on other platforms that the potential was obvious… After all, Snapchat is inherently about sharing pictures and images and is geared toward a younger demographic.
“Without having a killer application, Bitmoji just existed as a novelty and Facebook wasn’t a killer platform for it,” said Brian Solis, an analyst covering social media at Altimeter Group. “Snap is a better fit.”
In this interview with Brian Solis, who is “globally recognized as one of the most prominent thought leaders in digital transformation and innovation,” we learn about the importance of great customer experience in a company.
He says, “Companies change for one of two reasons: one is because you have a leader who recognizes the Aha! moment or you have management that recognizes the Uh-Oh moment. It’s almost like Netflix v. Blockbuster or Amazon v. Borders – there’s this understanding of how customers are changing, and then companies become customer centric in their efforts to develop new CX strategies.”
“Business and marketing legend” Brian Solis wrote the forward for Travis Wright and Chris Snook’s new book, Digital Sense, described as “one of the very wonderful things” about the publication.
Brian writes, “Digital is a means to reach a different breed of customers, one who’s connected, informed, empowered, demanding, elusive, a bit narcissistic, and definitely in control of their online experiences.”
