The Transformational Consumer

They are the most valuable, least understood customers of our time. They buy over $4 trillion in life-improving products and services every year. If you serve their deeply human need to continually improve their lives, they will eagerly engage with your brand at a time when most people are tuning out corporate messages.

They are Transformational Consumers, and no one knows them like Tara-Nicholle Nelson. Her Transformational Consumer insights powered her work at MyFitnessPal, which grew from 40 million to 100 million users in her time there.

Nelson takes readers on a hero's journey to connecting with customers in ways both profitable and transformational. After going inside the brains, emotions, and behaviors of Transformational Consumers, Tara issues a call to adventure: a rallying cry to leaders to shift their focus from simply making products to solving their customers' problems.

Nelson uses stories and cases studies from every industry to guide readers through this journey in five stages, shedding light on how to rethink their customers, their products and services, their marketing, their competition, and even their culture.

The key to growing a business today is not building an app or getting new social media followers. The key is engaging people over and over again by triggering their deep, human desire for growth and transformation.

When a company reorients every initiative to serve Transformational Consumers, it kick-starts a lifelong love affair with its customers—a love affair that results in unprecedented revenue growth, product innovation, and employee engagement.

“Tara Nelson describes a key audience for marketers seeking growth: seek customers (actually, humans) seeking growth as well!”
- Seth Godin, author of Purple Cow

The Transformational Consumer offers a new lens on two age-old business problems: how to get customers to care about what you sell, and how to get them to come back over and over again. Tara has created a manual for a new way to do business: by sparking a virtuous cycle of transformation for your company and your customers.” 
—Pete Flint, founder and former Chairman and CEO, Trulia

“This is not a book about marketing. It's a vision for how businesses can connect with customers at a deep, human level, becoming a regular stop on their everyday life journeys. It reveals how to take the limits off people's lives and build a business with devoted customers in the process.”
—James White, former Chairman, President, and CEO, Jamba Juice; and board member, Conscious Capitalism

“Tara draws upon her vast experience to create a playbook to unlock the power behind the Transformational Consumer to create long-lasting brands and build strong corporate cultures.”
—Jim Stengel, former Global Marketing Officer, Procter & Gamble 

“It's easier than ever to get an app, website, and product built. The hard part is getting anyone to care or take notice. Tara completely changes how founders should think about their products and creates a marketing framework that's accessible to all. This is an absolute must-read for anyone in business who wants to create more value for customers. It's changed how I think about my company, from our mission to how we deal with competition."
—Jihan Thompson, former Health Editor, O, The Oprah Magazine, and founder, Swivel Beauty App

“Tara-Nicholle Nelson ups the ante in her new book, 
The Transformational Consumer, arguing that we should be engaging our customers in a higher purpose, to help them be more effortful and intentional in how they live their lives, to call on their aspirations rather than their addictions. Luckily, that desire already exists; we just have to be willing to meet it.”
- Dylan Schleicher, 800-CEO-READ
