In the 21st Century brands are no more an entity that provides a service, a product or a business solution to their end users. Today brands have evolved into a personality of their own; through their 360 degree presence in our lives they register their usefulness in our subconscious.
Brands have evolved from being a Sales campaign into a steady partner that voices consumer’s deepest beliefs and emotionally attaches them to its overall usability & appeal. It is not just about the company’s Logo, its online presence, or its tagline; it is about the entire experience a prospective customer has with the brand.
A successful brand strategy not only entails attracting right set of customers but also engaging, closing and retaining those set of customers so that they remain loyal to the brand over a long period of time. Think of Tata, Bajaj or most recently Patanjali & you would know exactly what each brand represents. Similarly your brand should connect in consumer’s mind every time they hear, see or experience your products.
A Successful Brand Strategy entails the following elements:
- It appeals to the emotional core of its buyers
- It defines clear cut benefits to each of its customer segment
- Successful Brand Strategy considers its brand as a personality that conveys the traits that appeal to most of its consumers.
- It provides one of a kind offering that differentiates it from the competitors.
An effective Brand Strategy can go a long way in communicating with right set of audience. The road to achieve it can be filled with surprises but once communicated; it results in loyal customers that help grow its reach.
