brand strategy

To unlock your brand's potential, you need to answer these five questions:

  1. Can you articulate your brand in seven seconds in a manner that would motivate consumers to engage and own a distinct space in the market?
  2. Are you making the right investments to create the desired impact in the market and the performance result for your business?
  3. Does everyone on your team know their role and how they contribute to building a successful brand?
  4. Does your execution establish your desired brand positioning and move customers to purchase?
  5. Are you investing in your team’s development to improve decision making and drive business growth through exceptional work?

If you cannot answer these five questions about your brand, your team will be confused.

With Beloved Brands, we will advise you on answering these five questions!

Failing to address these five questions can lead to confusion among your team, scattered brand investments with minimal returns, inconsistent market execution, a lack of brand definition for consumers, and ultimately, stagnant business growth. It’s time to take decisive action.

Our workshops utilize effective tools to encourage fresh perspectives. 

As a facilitator, I will actively guide and listen to you, helping to surface the key answers that will inform your brand positioning statement, strategic investments, and cohesive team plan.

By investing in your team and utilizing our guidance, you can achieve cohesive marketing efforts that effectively build your brand reputation, influence consumer purchasing decisions, and drive business growth through smarter decision making and exceptional work from your team.

Can you articulate your brand in seven seconds in a manner that would motivate consumers to engage and own a distinct space in the market?

Everyone should know what your brand stands for. Every employee, every partner, and every customer should all use the same words.

At Beloved Brands, we will help you define your brand to set you up to win in the marketplace. To start, we define your ideal consumer, and work with you to build a brand positioning that is balanced with functional and emotional benefits. 

We summarize your brand by creating a brand idea that you can stand behind and steers everyone who works behind the scenes of the brand. 

We leave you with the brand positioning elements of a brand book. Everyone who works on the brand must know how to describe your brand in 7 seconds, 60 seconds, or 30 minutes.

Are you making the right investments and does everyone on your team know their role?

A strategic plan should force smart focused decisions to help organize, steer, and inspire your team towards a brighter future of higher growth.

At Beloved Brands, we use our Strategic ToolBox questions to open up your team’s thinking and help frame the key issues facing your brand. 

We work with you to build each element of a strategic plan: vision, purpose, values, key issues, strategies, and tactics. 

We leave you with a one-page strategic plan and a formal presentation. Everyone who works on your brand will know their specific role and see a list of projects they need to complete.

Does your marketing execution establish your desired brand reputation and move customers to purchase?

Your marketing execution must consistently deliver your brand positioning through marketing communications, product innovation, sales, retail, and an ideal customer experience. And, every effort needs to move customers to purchase. 

At Beloved Brands, we start with a creative brief that will focus any agency on developing smart, creative advertising and media. 

With the sales team, we find programs that work at the purchase moment through retail channels, packaging, e-commerce, direct selling, customer service, and merchandising. 

We create an innovation process, brainstorm new ideas you can test and assess, and build and execute a launch program. 

At every step, we advise you on the best path forward.

"Graham’s experience gives his work credibility as a brand strategy consultant. His ability to pare complex problems down to simple-to-understand concepts is his greatest strength. Marketing is an imprecise and confusing science.

"Graham Robertson asks simple questions that you never realized you don’t have one answer to as a team. The most powerful question he asked us was “who is your best customer.” It was like all the air had been sucked out of the room and he allowed the dramatic pause to linger. When people began to attempt to answer we realized we weren’t aligned. At that moment we saw the opportunity to move from a product-centric organization to one that is more customer focused. I highly recommend Graham's brand strategy consulting services to any organization looking to move their brand forward."
