Before rolling out a marketing campaign, you must have first defined your brand. One of the most important factors in brand definition is understanding how much influence it has on your company. Your brand is a derivative of who you are, who you aspire to be, and who people distinguish you to be.
Brand marketing is crucial to the success of any business venture. Besides advertising your products or services, your brand (including your name, logo, or design), must also be promoted. It not only sets you apart from competitors, it could also serve as standard for your product.
Regular strategic brand marketing leads to a solid brand equity. This is the added value brought to your business’ products or services allowing you to charge a bit more for your brand than what similar, unbranded products command. The most obvious example of this is Pepsi compared with a generic soda. Because they have created a powerful brand equity, they can charge more for their products…and consumers are willing to pay that higher price.
In an increasingly dynamic marketplace, yelling louder isn’t usually the answer. Business today isn’t solely about what goods or services you offer, it’s about what you stand for and the assurance that you can deliver just that. Customers want purpose, they want to believe, and they want to believe they’re part of something larger than themselves.
