The secret weapon to supercharge your social outreach programs might not be so secret after all—the power of social norming has been known to marketers for nearly a century. In 1929, early PR guru Edward Bernays utilized social norming to broaden the market for tobacco: in an effort to get more women to smoke, Bernays enlisted a group of elegant ladies to march in New York’s Easter Sunday Parade, proudly puffing away at their cigarettes. The stunt worked, providing a massive breakthrough for the tobacco companies. But today, social norming can be used by your organization for much healthier ends: when used in your community outreach, the power of social norming through group experience can create a positive impact and enhance your brand reputation.
When responding to a 2015 Global Health survey, one major health organization said, “You really live and die on how trusted you are by patients and customers. Demonstrating a strong commitment to CSR really helps to build trust with patients, and that will speak to our long-term sustainability.” Community outreach is a savvy business move as well as an ethical one, but health organizations like yours want to be sure that education programs are as effective as possible—and social norming provides the key.
