Join us at the DaVinci Institute as we hear from five of the country’s leading branding experts as they take us on an inside look at the powerful new world of branding.
In a market where products are similar, branding can have a large effect on the price that customers will pay. Brands therefore add value to a basic product or service. Brand equity is used to describe both the value of the brand and the brand’s component values.
Brands encapsulate a whole range of communication, learning, history, feeling about a product or company within a simple name and logo. But although the name may be simple, the ideas underpinning brands and the different ways in which brands are used are both complex and multi-faceted.

The American Marketing Association defines a brand as a “name, term, sign, symbol or design, or a combination of them intended to identify the goods and services of one seller or group of sellers and to differentiate them from those of competitors.”
Therefore it makes sense to understand that branding is not about getting your target market to choose you over the competition, but it is about getting your prospects to see you as the only one that provides a solution to their problem.
The objectives that a good brand will achieve include:
Deliver the message clearly
Confirms your credibility
Connects your target prospects emotionally
Motivates the buyer
Concrete User Loyalty
To succeed in branding you must understand the needs and wants of your customers and prospects. You do this by integrating your brand strategies through your company at every point of public contact.
Your brand resides within the hearts and minds of customers, clients, and prospects. It is the sum total of their experiences and perceptions, some of which you can influence, and some that you cannot.
A strong brand is invaluable as the battle for customers intensifies day by day. Join us as we spend time researching, defining, and building your brand.
