Consumers are more discerning than ever before, and in order to build a successful brand you need to work to earn their trust. Last year, in New York's Central Park, an old man was selling "Banksy paintings" for $60 apiece. His booth was next to others, selling everything from second-hand books to fruit and vegetables.
During the entire day, only three paintings were sold, but what looked like any other booth was actually a provocative stunt by the artist Banksy himself. The works of art were real and their lucky new owners had snatched a bargain worth tens of thousands of dollars.
