Brands are often just a famous name for a product, most of the time people are just paying for the name. The product could be a lollipop but if it’s from a known designer that lollipop is going to sell for a higher cost and people will pay because they want anything that designer has. In some cases Brand named items really do make a difference and sometimes spending that extra penny really does matter. One thing that does matter to me is a car brands. Higher quality cars ride better, perform better, and usually look better, and one brand that I am sold on is Lexus. This brand is so classic and stylish; it is a luxury brand that ranks higher than most other brands. The reason I am so passionate about Lexus is quite simple, the overall performance is what sold me. Lexus cars are very unique and comfortable, the inside of the car is simple but yet have all the modern technologies any other car has. The seats are very comfortable, and the ride quality is second to none. Driving in this car is very enjoyable and always relaxes me. I was never big on driving, in fact I would refuse to drive people would come pick me up. Now I am so comfortable driving that I don’t notice how often I am on the go. The last reason I am so passionate about this brand is because it’s a high end Toyota, everyone knows that Toyotas last forever and hold their value. In other words Lexus hold there price values over time and they will last longer than most cars on the road. Toyota and Lexus owners are happy because their vehicles hold more than just their beloved passengers and possession but they also hold their value over time. (“Lexus Named Top Luxury Brand in Kelley Blue Book's Best Resale Value Awards.. Again,” 2015).
When Toyota introduced Lexus into the United States 26 years ago, it won over luxury car buyers. In fact people didn’t know that Lexus was made by Toyota or that there where…...

...Build  credibility by building trust Company brands, like individual  personalities, are based on behaviors and characteristics. The stronger the  characteristics, the stronger the business brand image. Over time, these  company personality traits become anticipated, expected and relied upon,  forming an inherent “promise” between a business and its clients. Volvo built a  reputation on safety. Rolex on prestige. Walmart on low prices. Companies have  personalities just like people. The more defined the character, the more  memorable the brand. Geico’s little guy coveys their affordability message “in  15 minutes or less.” With social media on the rise,  and increased transparency on the web, brands can no longer hide out,  manipulate or dictate the message. Actions speak louder than tweets. This requires a new level of authenticity and commitment to a company’s core  values. What is your brand promise?  Do you know it? More importantly, do your customers know it? Most companies, (especially start ups and entrepreneurs,) in  an attempt to simply get by and “make it,” lose focus and promise too many  things to too many people. It’s a we-can-do-it-all mentality that fears than  any “no” will lead to a loss of business -- when in fact, it’s just the  opposite. Saying no to incongruent clients and projects creates time and  opportunity to say yes to the right ones. Common tag lines such as “No job  is too big or small,”  communicate  little to nothing about your benefits...

...Brand identity stems from an organization, i.e., an organization is responsible for creating a distinguished product with unique characteristics. It is how an organization seeks to identify itself. It represents how an organization wants to be perceived in the market. An organization communicates its identity to the consumers through its branding and marketing strategies. A brand is unique due to its identity. Brand identity includes following elements - Brand vision, brand culture, positioning, personality, relationships, and presentations. Brand identity is a bundle of mental and functional associations with the brand. Associations are not “reasons-to-buy” but provide familiarity and differentiation that’s not replicable getting it. These associations can include signature tune(for example - Britannia “ting-ting-ta-ding”), trademark colours (for example - Blue colour with Pepsi), logo (for example - Nike), tagline (for example - Apple’s tagline is “Think different”),etc. | Brand identity is the total proposal/promise that an organization makes to consumers. The brand can be perceived as a product, a personality, a set of values, and a position it occupies in consumer’s minds. Brand identity is all that an organization wants the brand to be considered as. It is a feature linked with a specific company, product, service or individual. It is a way of externally expressing a brand to the world. Brand identity is the noticeable elements of a brand (for instance - Trademark......

...Brand Brand is the "name, term, design, symbol, or any other feature that identifies one seller's good or service as distinct from those of other sellers." Initially, Branding was adopted to differentiate one person's cattle from another's by means of a distinctive symbol burned into the animal's skin with a hot iron stamp, and was subsequently used in business, marketing and advertising. A modern example of a brand is Coca Cola which belongs to the Coca-Cola Company. A brand is the most valuable fixed asset of a Corporation. Marque or make are often used to denote a brand of motor vehicle, which may be distinguished from a car model. A concept brand is a brand that is associated with an abstract concept, like breast cancer awareness or environmentalism, rather than a specific product, service, or business. A commodity brand is a brand associated with a commodity. Got milk? is an example of a commodity brand. The word "brand" is derived from the Old Norse brandr meaning "to burn." It refers to the practice of producers burning their mark (or brand) onto their products.[4] The oldest generic brand, which is in continuous use in India since the Vedic period (ca. 1100 B.C.E to 500 B.C.E), is known as 'Chyawanprash', an herbal paste consumed for its purported health benefits and attributed to a revered rishi (or seer) named Chyawan.[5] This brand was developed at Dhosi Hill, an extinct volcano in northern India. The Italians were among the first to use brands, in the form of...

Brand Elements Slogans: It’s not hard to imagine Everyone’s invited URL: www.samsung.com Marketing Strategy Product Innovation Samsung's product range in India included CTVs, audio and video products, information technology products, mobile phones and home appliances. Its product range covered all the categories in the consumer electronics and home appliances. Analysts felt that the wide product range of Samsung was one of main reasons for its success in the Pakistani market. Samsung positioned itself on the technology platform. Pricing Pricing also seemed to have played a significant role in Samsung's success. Distribution Along with the launch of new products, Samsung also consolidated its distribution system. Samsung had several distribution offices and a direct dealer interface. The direct dealer interface helped the company get quick feedback from dealers, and enabled it to launch products according to consumer needs.

So, in order to establish itself in the Pakistani consumers' mind, Samsung launched corporate advertisements highlighting its technologically superior goods.

...STRONG BRANDS How Brand Strategy and Brand Communication Contribute to Build Brand Equity THE CASE OF NAVIGATOR Student: Daniela Yasenova Baeva Supervisor: Professor Doctor Arnaldo Fernandes Matos Coelho May, 2011 Master Thesis in Marketing STRONG BRANDS – How Brand Strategy and Brand Communication Contribute to Build Brand Equity: THE CASE OF NAVIGATOR 1 ABSTRACT In a world of global competition that we are living nowadays, brands are each time more used by companies as a strategy to create value and differentiation and this way to be one step ahead of their rivals. A "brand" is the result of the recognition and the personal attachment that forms in the hearts and minds of the customers through their accumulated experience with that “brand”. These experiences contribute to increased consumer trust and loyalty and allow building strong relationships with the “brand”. By this way, “brands” promote the increase of shareholder value and establish a long-term advantage in the marketplace for organisations. Companies recognise that strong brands are and have been historically associated with accelerated revenue growth and improved returns to shareholders. That is why, each time more organisations focus their strategies on building powerful brands as they represent competitive advantage and they are a key success factor in creating value to the customer and at the same time value to the company. In this regard, this study intends to show how effective brand......

...Journal of Marketing Communications Vol. 15, Nos. 2 – 3, April– July 2009, 139–155 Building strong brands in a modern marketing communications environment Kevin Lane Keller* E.B. Osborn Professor of Marketing, Tuck School of Business, Dartmouth College, 100 Tuck Hall, Hanover, NH 03755, USA To help marketers to build and manage their brands in a dramatically changing marketing communications environment, the customer-based brand equity model that emphasizes the importance of understanding consumer brand knowledge structures is put forth. Specifically, the brand resonance pyramid is reviewed as a means to track how marketing communications can create intense, active loyalty relationships and affect brand equity. According to this model, integrating marketing communications involves mixing and matching different communication options to establish the desired awareness and image in the minds of consumers. The versatility of on-line, interactive marketing communications to marketers in brand building is also addressed. Keywords: customer-based brand equity; brand resonance; brand building; integrated marketing communications; interactive marketing communications Introduction The marketing communications environment has changed enormously from what it was 50, 30 or perhaps even as few as 10 years ago. Technology and the Internet are fundamentally changing the way the world interacts and communicates. At the same time, branding has become a key marketing priority for most......

...Varying Perspectives on Brand Equity By Jonathan Knowles 20 ❘ MM July/August 2008 Yo u s a y t o m a y t o a n d I s a y t o m a h t o . I started business life in finance (at the Bank of England in London), and in those early days I did not give brands a second thought. My life was dominated by financial facts and figures. And for the first 10 years of my career, I believed that these metrics were essentially all that were needed to manage and run a successful business. This view survived my transition into management consulting—at least initially. But the more I worked on developing value-based business strategies for companies, the more I came to appreciate the need to expand beyond a purely financial approach. If (as management consultant Peter Drucker famously observed) the purpose of business is to create and keep a customer, then strategy necessarily involved understanding and catering to the functional and emotional needs of customers. MM July/August 2008 ❘ 21 EXECUTIVE Brand equity is a widely accepted concept—but its definition is frustratingly elusive. Here we’ll explore the different perspectives that marketing, finance, and accounting have on the topic— and how these can be reconciled. Doing so is important because of the critical role that brand briefing equity plays in the demonstration of marketing accountability. This article puts forward four arguments that marketers can use to show how brand equity is a critical......

...Managing the brand Even though the there has been a significant level of marketplace change within the last thirty years, the principles that involve in management have not changed. But the capacities to understand and implement the principles of companies have significantly improved. The role of the top management It is a core task of the top management to generate and maintain a culture and business atmosphere where improved understanding of the consumer is the driving force for the team entrusted with management of the brand. Managing brands for value creation According to the research which was carried out by Booz Allen Hamilton and Wolff Olins, they have found that there are three categories of companies. These companies were categorized in a way that how each company has identified the importance of brands in their success. The three types are briefly described below. * Brand-guided companies: These companies have identified that brand is so important for the success of their business and therefore to have a reasonable management of brand. They have established a common understanding of what they stands for and therefore have assigned clear brand ownership at top management level [1]. * Emerging brand companies: These companies have not yet fully recognized the importance of brands in success. They are developing a common understanding of their brands. Therefore we can expect them to be a brand-guided company over the next five years. *......

...above a manager could get a lot of ideas of what the brand should target. Looking at the first map it is quite clear that snickers is a brand with low price and low quality compare to other chocolate bars and compare to other chocolate confectionaries. This is also a good picture of customers buying behaviour, which gives the manager an idea to target people that look for value for money, it also gives a good idea of targeting all supermarkets without any selection, also any convenience stores. The second map (diagram) explains two very important targets: taste and being a healthy or unhealthy product. People who likes chocolates and chocolate confectionaries it is quite obvious that they will look for maximum taste. For a manager this is enough to think of targeting people that will love a nice chocolate bar to go with their coffee or treating themselves. As snickers and other chocolate confectionaries are quite high in calories, it makes these products very unhealthy for people that watch their bathroom’s scales every morning, therefore it will be worthless to target this audience. Third map (diagram) it is helpful to explain to a manager the convenience and what type of product is this brand. When people buy snickers and any other chocolate confectionaries often they do not think too much of what to buy they choose the one which is next to them, also people do not go in the shop deliberately to buy one of this brand, they buy this because they are there and they want......

...A brand orientation typology for SMEs: a case research approach Ho Yin Wong and Bill Merrilees Department of Marketing, Griffith Business School, Griffith University, Gold Coast, Australia Purpose – This research paper aims to discuss the role of branding strategy in small and medium size enterprises (SMEs). Design/methodology/approach – The literature on traditional brand management and strategic branding are first reviewed. Four critical constructs are identified, namely brand distinctiveness, brand orientation, brand-marketing performance and brand barriers. The literature, in combination with (eight) case research interviews, has been synthesised to develop a new theory of SME branding. Findings – The paper reveals that the theory identifies the ladder of SME brand orientation, moving from minimal brand orientation, to embryonic brand orientation to integrated brand orientation. Further, it is suggested that most SMEs will be on the lower steps of the ladder. A model of the brand strategy process has been formulated, specifying links between brand barriers, brand distinctiveness, brand orientation and brand-marketing performance. The study puts forward some propositions about the pre-conditions to move higher up the ladder, particularly to an integrated brand orientation. Research limitations/implications – The major limitation of this research is that it is based on eight case studies. It is suggested that a quantitative survey be carried out to enhance the......
