Strong brand management strategies will maximize your company’s success and cultivate a breeding ground for die-hard fans. Wondering how to get your brand from “meh” to “must have”? Here are four steps you can take to strengthen your brand management process.
1. Establish Your Brand Position
Brand positioning is key to effective brand management. The positioning includes everything that sets your organization apart from your competition. Be intentional about the ways your brand stands apart, and how you highlight them—what do you do better than your competitors?
2. Plan and Implement Brand Marketing Programs
Brand marketing programs can distinguish your company from others and help establish a strong brand association. Consider the products you offer, price, distribution, and marketing strategies, and how you can present them in a way unique to your market.
3. Measure and Analyze Brand Performance
Though many aspects of your brand may be intangible, it’s important to measure the success of your branding strategy. You can measure your brand’s performance by looking at metrics such as awareness, familiarity, consideration, and advocacy—how successful have you been at cultivating a relationship of trust with your target audience?
4. Grow Your Brand Equity
Built on a foundation of brand identity, personality, and positioning, brand equity measures the perceived value of your brand and its influence. Financial metrics like market share, transaction value, and revenue can help you measure brand equity, but don’t undervalue your audience’s emotional connection to your brand.
