Brand Review

Having a deep analysis and knowledge of the implications, restrictions or limitations of your business is important before getting into brand planning. A deep know how of everything in every aspect is important.

Companies like J&J provide their Brand Managers to look up at everything that can be anything of the sort of a glitch for at least 6 weeks. This is to make sure that the marketing strategies designed to present to the leadership team are the best in interest of the company. The work is a bit tricky and demands a lot of effort but this decides the path of the business flight. All of these results are based on the types of personality and the level of ambition. If an A-type of personality is given the project and handled as a test, the best results are obtained from the run. The ABMs spend each day of the given time constrain to find out the details of aspects like monthly consumption, expenditure, revenue, sales and all such sorts of numbers that are vital to the organization to develop an effective and long lasting branding technique by keeping record of the execution, following which, the business runs. The record keeping is done throughout the year. The author shares his experience of becoming the Brand Manger after getting promoted. He thanked god that he didn’t have to do any more analyses anymore and that now all he had to do was think. As he got promoted to the Director and then to the level of VP, he felt that he had lost the real association, he once had to the brand. So, in order to regain the association and attachment to the brand, he would take out some time in the morning while having the monthly report at hand and do the work of an ABM himself. While he was at it, he would look into the shared data, the databases, he would look out for the disruptions in the trend line, question the splits, if present, and the channels or sizes. At other times, he would reach different conclusions. Side by side to all this, he discovered a new skill that he could do faster than he had ever been as an ABM.

Another lesson that he learned while working as an executive was that it is vital to dig in and question before doing the thinking.

The author is now a part of Beloved Brands. He says that they believe in getting down to the roots of anything and live by 6 principles to help analyse in detail.

  1. Opinions without any facts are mere opinions and the decisions cannot be made by standing by those assumptions. This rule states that support can be gained while standing by the opinions with their analytical basis.
  2. Absolute numbers without any solid background are simply unserviceable. Analytical stories and facts are believable and more appropriate to stand by while running a business.
  3. The systematic story meets reality when there is a breakdown seen in the data. Comparison with the parallel indexes including cross formulations can bring about a change in the analyses. The breaks and oppositions that any cross check can bring can literally turn every story around.
  4. There are two pieces that make the frame of a story. The brand strategy should not be made by relying on one of these pieces. It should be made sure that the proposal you are taking into the conference room is a real thing that has the power to impact he brand.
  5. Take time. While developing any result. Observe and go into the deep details of everything. Make sure that you are sure of what you know, what you think, what should be the possible assumption and the subsequent results.
  6. Use instruments that can arrange and compel profound plunge thinking in the main ranges: SWOTs or other similar sort of devices must compose your reasoning and casing the examination.
