Brands often are faced with a dilemma on whether their product has what it takes to challenge the already established ones.
Do you know the one question that comes in mind for any brand owner? Is it good enough? This question arises at the initial stage of any brand development, the idea when conceived leaves a lot of things that needs to be accounted for. From the beginning it is imperative for any brand to have a strategy on how they will enter the unfathomable world of internet. Without a carefully structured strategy the brand, no matter how good, will not be able to gather necessary consideration and will perish with the millions that are already at the rock bottom.
What one should understand is making the brand powerful, rather than gaining attention. A powerful brand will be able to garner attention by design. Of course, a strategy will be required even then, however it will reduce the time taken for the brand to gain the necessary attention. The brand owners should always think about its audience as its influencers. Powerful brands will always make strategies which will make their customers feel special. Everyone likes to say things however not many want to listen. Listening to their audience is what separates a powerful brand from others. They are quick to react when there is dissatisfaction within their audiences, they make the necessary amends to make sure their customers always feel special.
The biggest mistake a brand can make is, thinking it is powerful from the beginning. No matter how much capital is invested in the brand, it will not be able to handle the underwhelming response given by its audiences. It’s good to be stubborn at times, however the contingency plan must be in place to avoid any backfires. Amidst all of this the brand should never lose its core values and must always remember one important rule: “When your brand has gone public the ball is always in your audiences’ court and seldom will you have a chance to bring out a revolution which will propel you to heights greater than before”.
No brand is powerful from the beginning, it is the custodians who make it strong and powerful. Get your strategy right, even if you have to discard the first one or the second or the third or as many as it takes until you get it right. Only with the right strategy can the brand overcome the first hurdle and become powerful. Good luck to the ones that wait for the brand to be powerful right from default. Sooner or later they will realize that a brand is not just an identity, it's an experience.
