Exactly!! Great marketing strategy understands and is in tune with the mindset of the customer. The marketer is one with the customer.
What comes to mind is a scene from the recent Mel Gibson movie, What Women Want, where Mel's character is pitching the female executives from Nike. Everyone was in perfect harmony!

Yeah, great discussion, I agree. Thanks for link.
What's interesting is that we don't have a final "one thing" yet.
It's down to a few things, but not one thing.
Personally, I think it's a combo of creating value and branding.

And, of course, first of all a great marketer gets into the mind of the customer - then we can speak their language. Like Mr. Spock - a mind meld first!
