Brand Development & Marketing
Harnessing the power of brand development for distinction and trust.
Creating a powerful brand instills inspiration and fosters trust within the intended audience. Given the intense competition, the significance of brand development has never been greater. When entering a fresh market, you essentially embark on a journey from ground zero.
The brand is your business identity.
When done right, brand investment always pays off for the company in the form of a better cash flow. However, this is the main purpose of branding, to gain a competitive advantage and better sales. Although over time the channels have changed, the basic principles of branding have not. Again, the number of messages people encounter has increased enormously, further emphasising the importance of branding to increase the desired competitive advantage. With the right branding, service design, and product development, you can influence how people perceive your company, how well it is remembered, and how trustworthy it is perceived. These are the things every successful business wants to achieve in its communications. That is why branding should not be seen as just a tool for external communication, but as a key element in a company's strategy which ties everything it does together.
Brand development and marketing communications
In international markets, your brand will face new audiences whose habits and values will always be somewhat different from the domestic market, sometimes radically so. Therefore, understanding cultural differences is a key part of building an export brand. The messages that drove success in the home market may not resonate the same way in another country. While brand development can be a complex process, the benefits are undeniable. Our team can provide support for your brand development, from adapting your brand to new markets to a complete rebrand if necessary. Below are the key steps required to develop or renew your brand.
1. Business goals and objectives
By aligning your brand development process with your business strategy and objectives, you ensure that every decision and action you take is in line with your overall objectives. Key business information should be available at the start of the branding process. This will ensure that all actions are leading towards the same goals.
For brand development or rebranding, it is crucial to have an adequate understanding of the target group, the prevailing trends and the direction of change, as well as of the competitors and the industry. This understanding can be used to draw the right conclusions on which to build the brand. Our team, together with our network, will build a good overview of your business, which you can use as a basis for developing a brand that supports your business' future objectives, taking into account the characteristics of your operating environment.
3. Brand strategy & Indentity
Brand strategy and identity are at the core of our brand services. They are the bedrock on which the customer experience, marketing and communications must always be built so the importance of this strategy work cannot be overstated. The brand strategy contains the brand persona definition and the important values that the brand operates by. The identity section includes the visual identity and the communication identity.
The strategy and identity, built together with the client, also help the company to innovate, because a key element of a strong brand is that it is always built from the inside out, rather than working in silos and from the outside in. Done right, the process engages the company's people in change initiatives, helping to drive the business as a whole.
