  12. 12. How does your Brand Strategy stack-up? Our Brand Strategy is…. Yes No Don’t Know Clearly linked to our business strategy - How we manage our brand and the investments we make in branding can be clearly tied back to our business goals, objectives and outcomes. Based upon the rational & emotional need of our target market – Our target market is clearly defined and we have solid research that backs-up our understanding of what customers need from businesses like ours. Effective in differentiating us from the competition – Customers clearly see our brand as different from competing alternatives in ways that really matter to them Integrated across all points of influence – Our brand positioning is consistent across all customer touch points. We are consistent in our controlled communications through web, PR, sponsorship and advertising and most importantly, in the experiences customers have when they deal with our business. Sensitive to uncontrollable influences – We have processes to monitor uncontrollable influences such as competitor actions and customer comments made about our brand in social media and on-line and respond accordingly. Understood by our staff & business partners – If I asked each staff member or business partner what our business stands for and what makes us different in the eyes of customers, I would get a consistent response that really reflects our brand strategy. If you answered anything other then “Yes” to any of the above, you have work to do on your brand strategy.
