CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Feb 17, 2012) - Brand Rituals: How Successful Brands Bond with Customers for Life (Spyglass Publishing) by Hyper Marketing Inc. CEO Zain Raj has reached the number one slot on Amazon's sales and marketing category.

In his book, Raj writes that building a brand is no longer about affecting consumer beliefs but about changing customer behavior, and he challenges long-standing marketing myths.

Building brand rituals involves four steps for marketers:

  • Offer a new value equation for your brand to get the initial transaction
  • Make digital the core channel for all brand communications
  • Build connections with relevant innovations in products, services and customer experiences
  • Create a bond that aligns with your target customer's core values

Raj became CEO in January 2012 of the newly formed Hyper Marketing Inc. Based in Chicago, HMI is the largest independent marketing-services network in North America with 1,300 employees in 24 offices in 19 cities.

A native of Mumbai, India, Raj has held executive-marketing positions at agencies including Euro RSCG, Wunderman, Grey, JWT, FCB and Bayer Bess Vanderwarker.
