brandWhen it comes to building up a great brand, it should be the first thing on your mind as a marketer.  The best marketers who think about building up their brands know that in order to succeed, their brands have to be able to stand for something that millions of consumers are willing to stand behind.

But there is one question that you have to ask your self…how exactly do you do that?

It takes quite a bit of work and effort when creating a brand that can differentiate itself in the market.  There are two assets that marketers understand well are:

  1. The product itself
  2. The culture of the company

Over the years, there seems to be a pretty major shift in how we as marketers do things.  Years ago, there was the focus on selling the product features and value, where as now, there has been a shift to also packaging and sharing the team philosophy, company culture and mission.  Together, all these points will hopefully make a brand that is worth believing in.
