Here are some thoughts on how to apply the OBM philosophy to the branding world. Have an open mindset Be ready, willing and eager to share every decision, action and reaction that is taken to build your brand. Be simultaneously open with your employees, business partners and consumers. Internally, that can include opening up the books to everyone who touches the brand, sharing business plans with outside partners and stakeholders or proactively providing consumers with information that empowers them to make better, more informed decisions.
Resist the urge to be selective and in total control. Share whatever you can, whenever you can without disclosing information that would help a competitor. Encourage them to drop in and check out any aspect of your brand at any time. Communicate news and updates about your brand and the people behind it as often as you can.
Have conversations about programs and promotions before they are launched. A simple rule of thumb: If there is something happening that can affect the brand experience, positively or negatively, get it to your consumers openly and honestly before someone else does.

Transparency can be a differentiating competitive advantage when managed smartly and swiftly. Social media have opened the door to wonderful possibilities in this area.
