Lovemarks is a marketing technique invented by Kevin Roberts, CEO Worldwide of Saatchi & Saatchi. It is featured in the books Lovemarks: the Future Beyond Brands and The Lovemarks Effect: Winning in the Consumer Revolution.
Connects you and I
Lovemarks are simply brands; yeah right! Lovemarks – the mark of love is an image inspiring and attracting you and I like the well thought through packaging wrapping our consumables and desirables. Globally there are millions of brands but only a few thousand Lovemarks, why? Lovemarks.com has made the global village a portal to the very best, why? Lovemarks.com is one of my most visited sites, why? Lovemarks.com stimulates me to write openly and passionately, why? Lovemarks.com has connected me with people, why? For me a brand is simply a logo but through the determination of a person’s joy and tears; through the dedication of a person’s vision and passion; through the disciplined approach of a person’s foresight to create quality, an evolving perception and positively inspiring Lovemark is created, which connects you and I to an organisation we actively feel an affiliation to.

I'm in love with Lovemarks
While working in advertising I always thought about the power of emotions for being one of the best way to communicate with consumers. I had always in mind what David Ogilvy said once: "The consumer is not your moron, she's your wife!" until one day a creative director of Saatchi & Saatchi (Riyadh) gave me the Lovemarks book in an exhibition. When I read it, Kevin Roberts amazed me, and I become more passionate to know more about the Lovemarks. When I visited Saatchi in Sydney, the ambience of the agency, the people, and every detail demonstrated on word: LOVE. I guess people who work there are not only loyal but committed. Nobody can survive without Love. I'm in love with Lovemarks.

I can't stop reading it
I found this book in an airport in Colombia, and since then, I have not stoped talking about it and recommending it to everyone I know. Even though I already have it, I asked the bookstore to import it. I love it, everything. The red color of the cover, the designs on every page, the way it is written...I can’t stop reading it.

Acknowledging our deep friendship with product
It seemed a natural progression to actually nominate the concept itself - for what other notion has generated so much thought about engagement with product and product evocation. What else has pulled us towards acknowledging our deep, daily friendship with product and allowed us to vocalise the consequent joy.

Today's the Day
I first became aware of this site because our company is now working with Saatchi & Saatchi for our ads. I’ve had to create some signs for work and have come to understand the whole "Lovemarks" thing. In the course of my job, I’ve made some "Today’s the Day to" verses’. I now know how brands can grow into Lovemarks. Today’s the Day to let the World Know Your Love!

Completely deserving of its own Lovemark
Lovemarks is completely deserving of its own Lovemark. I’m not sure if this can even happen, however, I wanted to shout out a kudos to the concept that started all this positive sharing. I blow a thousand kisses to you.

It inspires me to be loyal to my profession
The concept Lovemarks inspires me, because it reminds me why I love communication. It inspires me to be loyal to my profession in times when my creativity is burned out. It inspires me to be loyal to my profession when everybody around me is negative about it. It reminds me to be loyal to my profession, my passion, my life. So I do feel passionate about this Lovemark. Although I could bear to be without it, I rather not. So thank you Lovemarks!!!

Kudos to Mr. Roberts
Lovemarks is a wonderful creation of Kevin Roberts. It allows us to tell the world what and who inspires us to have "loyalty beyond reason" for them. In the words of Mr. Roberts, "Lovemarks reach your heart as well as your mind, creating an intimate, emotional connection that you just canít live without. Ever. A Lovemark shows Commitment, Empathy and Passion." Kudos to Mr. Roberts for the creative, innovative idea of Lovemarks, which has done and is just that - A Lovemark!

A sanctuary of free thoughts and opinions...
Lovemarks is an excellent, shall we say, 'forum' on the web where people from all over the world can get together discussing the subjects, topics and issues closest to their heart. I found this website a sanctuary of free thoughts and opinions. And I can honestly say my love for this topic is genuine, although it may seem ironic, but my lovemark today would have to be Lovemarks.com.
