rev 10-Step Brand Strategy Guide
Brand Strategy & Planning is one of the most important elements of your business outside your financial management. Your brand is without a doubt your company’s most valuable asset. A strong brand builds trust and integrity, both crucial elements to turn leads into customers.
WITHOUT a focused sales and marketing strategy, it doesn’t matter how much you spend on lead generation, over the long-term, you WILL NOT have a sustainable sales pipeline.
A brand Identity whether it’s a company, product or service is best understood as your reputation, and it’s visibility in the marketplace. The strength of your brand can be measured as Reputation X Visibility.
e.g. Brand Strength = Your reputation multiplied by Your visibility in the marketplace.
So where do you start?
Well BEFORE you start wasting time and money on sales, marketing or online advertising, you MUST build your brand strategy, and a strategic marketing plan first!
What’s the difference between a brand strategy and a plan?
Strategy is about understanding the environment, and making choices about your offer and how you relay this to your customers.
Planning is about making choices about the actions and also use of resources available to achieve the decisions made within your strategy (the tactics).
Building branded solutions not branded productsA constant problem for brand marketers is that they define your business brand or corporate identity by what you sell, rather than what your customers actually want or need?
Claim your position; consumers purchase for varying reasons, so sure that you understand your target market and their problems or challenges BEFORE you start running out promoting something that people don’t want.
An example of this is how people purchase motor vehicles. Did you know that the strongest purchase decision factor is how a car looks and NOT what features it has? It’s a good lesson on how you market and sell your products.
It’s crucial to identify at the start:
● Who your CUSTOMER or target market is
● The PROBLEMS they face
● The VALUE you provide by supplying a product or service.
