How can I position my brand to best resonate with both my customers and employees?

New market entrants emerge daily, traditional industry lines continue to blur, and customer choices continue to proliferate. But a well-developed brand will stand out from the crowd, including new and emerging competition. And a brand is not just a product, service, logo, or  tagline. It is your organization’s most important asset.

 

In fact, your brand is whatever comes to mind when people think of your product or service. And it is more important than ever that companies have a well-articulated brand strategy to guide their offerings, tactical decisions, and communications.

This includes having a clearly defined mission, vision, and values. It also encompasses clearly defining and understanding your target customers, how your brand fits into their lives, and the benefits your brand offers to solve an important customer need. This articulation of your brand’s strategy will also help ensure that your company has a clearly structured and defined brand architecture and portfolio strategy.

Strategy3 blends the power of research with a focus on actionability to build brand strategies that are dynamic, differentiated, and durable.
