I’m sure you are familiar with the brand marketing salary metric and how it measures how effective a brand is at generating sales.
This is a little trickier to explain, but the idea is that a brand has a high brand value, which means that it has a higher chance of generating sales. A brand that is low in brand value will tend to be less effective at generating sales.
Branding is the process of creating a brand that people believe in. This is the difference between low brand value and low brand effectiveness. A brand that is low in brand value (which could range from a brand like a cup of coffee to an actual brand name) can generate sales, but a brand that is low in brand effectiveness (which can range from a coffee shop to a brand name) can be less effective at generating sales.
This is particularly important when it comes to the way we market to consumers. Consumers are more likely to buy a product based on what they believe the brand stands for as opposed to what the product actually does. While the old saying “never judge a book by its cover” is true, we can also say that a product that is low in brand effectiveness will probably be less effective than a product that is low in brand value.
The problem with brand marketing is that it’s all about selling, but the wrong product can have the opposite effect: It can turn consumers off. This has been a problem for marketers for a long time. It’s true that when it comes to a brand, people are more likely to buy a product based on what they think the brand stands for than what the product actually does. They are more likely to buy a product that has a great reputation than one that has a terrible reputation.
Brand marketing is a great example of this. When a company is on the forefront of a certain category, people are more likely to trust it and buy into it. When it comes to making money from a brand, though, that trust is not absolute. When a company makes a mistake, the brand can easily become synonymous with that error and the resulting damage can be more costly than the mistake itself.
The big problem with brand marketing is that it relies on the trust of your customers. But because of this, it is hard to keep the trust when the company that created the product that you are marketing to is incompetent or otherwise untrustworthy. I think this is the main reason why some companies go under. I want to take a minute to talk about what a bad reputation really is.
Reputation is the belief that a company or individual has of a specific entity (e.g., a person or brand). This is a very difficult thing to achieve. You have to be extremely persuasive and convincing and make it hard for an individual to question a belief that they hold so strongly. That’s why you see brands that are just plain bad. The best ones are the ones that appear to be good while actually being bad.
The problem is that bad reputations are hard to come by. I’m sure there are a ton of examples of brands who have just plain broken the bad reputation apple. A good example is the company Blue Bottle Coffee. They made a bunch of terrible coffee and were soon booted from the coffee shop scene. To this day, there are still a bunch of people buying their coffee. It’s not their fault, but the way they marketed them is not great.
The problem with brand marketing is that it’s an incredibly difficult process to get your point across. The way people perceive you and your company can be extremely subjective, and you can end up paying a lot of money for an unsuccessful campaign. There is also the problem that you might just be giving yourself a bad reputation. If you have a great product and people think you’re just a crappy company or you’re a company that will do anything for its shareholders, they’ll think you are a bad rep.
