Brand Management

The topic of brands remains on the top agenda in the executive suites of all companies as the "mega-topic par excellence".
The main task of a brand is to differentiate a company with its products and services or the company itself from the competition and to make it unique. Because it is the brand that gives origin and character, creates identity and meaning - and makes corporate services incomparable and relatable.

As a reaction to the "deepening" and "broadening" with regard to the view of the brand, however, for some time now extended requirements and necessities have been placed on the field of activity in the form of holistic brand management, further stakeholders vis-à-vis the brand have been taken into account and the handling of certain challenges of corporate management (e.g. mergers & acquisitions) has also been integrated as a special area in the field of activity of brand management.

From a corporate perspective, however, the hoped-for potential for success of strong brands can only be realized if the need for brand orientation of the entire company is recognized, (corporate) brands are strategically planned, formulated and consistently anchored, both internally and externally.

Strong brands grow from within. Once the strategy has been developed, the top priority is therefore to anchor the brand within the company.

This requires a brand engagement process in which employees from all areas of the company are empowered and motivated not only to keep the brand promise, but to "live" brand values. To this end, employees are involved in the process of brand building, informed about the brand and enthused for the brand in order to ultimately influence their behavior in the sense of the brand.

Every employee should be able to identify with the brand and build up a commitment to it. Internal branding releases forces and increases performance within the company. At the same time, problems and hurdles have to be removed. Silo thinking and a lack of brand-customer orientation often hinder the successful implementation of a brand in the market. This requires a brand-oriented corporate culture, organizational structures and processes.

And it sounds almost simple: A brand is successfully anchored in the company when all employees have understood the brand and act in its spirit. But anyone who has had initial experience with strategy implementations or internal branding knows that it is usually a long and arduous road to this goal!

Internal branding is a set of strategic measures to steer a planned change management process, which must be carried into the organization to ultimately become a permanent task.

Translating brand into products and service

Products and services are the core of a brand's performance. In the sense of a brand carrier, the brand promise is manifested within them and can be experienced by customers. It is therefore very important that the core performance and its concrete implementation in design and tangible service are to the point.

We structure your product and service portfolio according to offerings with special appeal for the brand, operationalize the brand into concrete product and service characteristics that should be experienced, and check for the degree of implementation. From this, we derive concrete optimization potentials for the further development of products and services.

Implement brand in sales

Does your sales force sell according to the heel-and-toe principle, via price, via product and service advantages - or via the brand? Wouldn't it be desirable if sales could benefit from the power of your brand and sell in line with the brand conformity?

We analyze how well your sales team acts as brand ambassadors to customers and how it uses brand values effectively in sales talks. Whether pre-sales, sales or after-sales - we develop tailored tools for brand-compliant customer contact in every phase and train your entire sales team in argumentation and behavior based on the brand philosophy. In addition, we help your sales team to optimally integrate digital structures and processes. Would you like to turn employees into brand ambassadors?
