2. Why Brand?Why do companies such as Coca-Cola, Microsoft, IBM and Disney seem to achieve global marketing success so easily? Why does it seem such an effort for others?Why do we, as consumers, feel loyal to such brands that the mere sight of their logo has us reaching into our pockets to buy their products? 3. The meaning of brandsBrands are a means of differentiating a companys products and services from those of its competitors.There is plenty of evidence to prove that customers will pay a substantial price premium for a good brand and remain loyal to that brand. It is important, therefore, to understand what brands are and why they are important. 4. The Importance of BrandsMcDonalds sums this up nicely in the following quote emphasizing the importance of brands:it is not factories that make profits, but relationships with customers, and it is company and brand names which secure those relationshipsBusinesses that invest in and sustain leading brands prosper whereas those that fail are left to fight for the lower profits available in commodity markets. 5. Coca-Cola If Coca-Cola were to lose all of its production-relatedassets in a disaster, the company would survive. Bycontrast, if all consumers were to have a sudden lapseof memory and forget everything related to Coca-Colathe company would go out of business. Coca-Cola 6. What is a brand?One definition of a brand is as follows:A name, term, sign, symbol or design, or a combination of these, that is intended to identify the goods and services of one business or group of businesses and to differentiate them from those of competitors.Interbrand - a leading branding consultancy - define a brand in this way:A mixture of tangible and intangible attributes symbolized in a trademark, which, if properly managed, creates influence and generates value. 7. Brand Equity Brand equity refers to the value of a brand. Brand equity isbased on the extent to which the brand has high brandloyalty, name awareness, perceived quality and strong productassociations. Brand equity also includes other intangible assetssuch as patents, trademarks and channel relationships. 8. Brand imageBrand image refers to the set of beliefs that customers hold about a particular brand. These are important to develop well since a negative brand image can be very difficult to shake off. 9. Brand extension Brand extension refers to the use of a successfulbrand name to launch a new or modified product in anew market. Virgin is perhaps the best example of howbrand extension can be applied into quite diverse anddistinct markets. 10. Branding gives the seller severaladvantagesSellers brand name and trademark provide legal protection of unique product featuresBranding gives the seller the opportunity to attract a loyal and profitable set of customers.Branding helps the seller segment markets.Strong brands help build corporate image, making it easier to launch new brands and gain acceptance by distributors and consumers. 11.

BRANDS - BUILDING A BRANDWhat factors are important in building brand value?Professor David Jobber identifies seven main factors in building successful brands, as given next: 13. Quality Quality is a vital ingredient of a good brand. Remember thecore benefits the things consumers expect. These mustbe delivered well and consistently. The branded washingmachine that leaks, or the training shoe that often fallsapart when wet, or a watch which needs frequentadjustments will never develop brand equity. Research confirms that, statistically, higher quality brandsachieve a higher market share and higher profitability thanthat of their inferior competitors. 14. Positioning Positioning is about the position a brand occupies in amarket in the minds of consumers. Strong brands have aclear, often unique position in the target market. Positioning can be achieved through several means,including brand name, image, service standards, productguarantees, packaging and the way in which it isdelivered. In fact, successful positioning usually requires acombination of these things. 15. RepositioningRepositioning occurs when a brand tries to change its market position to reflect a change in consumers tastes. This is often required when a brand has become tired, perhaps because its original market has matured or has gone into decline. 16. Communications Communications also play a key role in building asuccessful brand. We suggested that brandpositioning is essentially about customerperceptions with the objective to build a clearlydefined position in the minds of the targetaudience. All elements of the promotional mix need to beused to develop and sustain customer perceptions.Initially, the challenge is to build awareness, then todevelop the brand personality and reinforce theperception. 17. First-mover advantageBusiness strategists often talk about first- mover advantage. In terms of brand development, by first-mover they mean that it is possible for the first successful brand in a market to create a clear positioning in the minds of target customers before the competition enters the market. There is plenty of evidence to support this. 18. Long-term perspectiveThe need to invest in the brand over the long- term is utmost essential. Building customer awareness, communicating the brands message and creating customer loyalty takes time. This means that management must invest in a brand, perhaps at the expense of short-term profitability. 19. Internal MarketingFinally, management should ensure that the brand is marketed internally as well as externally. By this we mean that the whole business should understand the brand values and positioning. This is particularly important in service businesses where a critical part of the brand value is the type and quality of service that a customer receives.Think of the brands that you value in the restaurant, hotel and retail sectors. It is likely that your favorite brands invest heavily in staff training so that the face-to-face contact that you have with the brand helps secure your loyalty. 20.

Types of brandThere are two main types of brand manufacturer brands and own-label brands.Manufacturer brandsManufacturer brands are created by producers and bear their chosen brand name. The producer is responsible for marketing the brand. The brand is owned by the producer.By building their brand names, manufacturers can gain widespread distribution (for example by retailers who want to sell the brand) and build customer loyalty (think about the manufacturer brands that you feel loyal to). 24. Private Label brands Own-label brands are created and owned by businessesthat operate in the distribution channel often referredto as distributors. Often these distributors are retailers, but not exclusively.Sometimes the retailers entire product range will be own-label. Own-label branding if well carried out can oftenoffer the consumer excellent value for money and providethe distributor with additional bargaining power when itcomes to negotiating prices and terms with manufacturerbrands. 25.
