  4. 4. We make brands stronger. We make brand leaders smarter. Strategic thinkers see “what if” questions before seeing solutions, mapping out a range of decision trees that intersect and connect by imagining how events will play out. • At Beloved Brands, we believe that strategic thinking is one of the foundations from which all marketing is built upon. • We start with the seven elements of good strategic thinking: vision, opportunity, focus, speed, early wins, leverage and a gateway to gain bigger results. • We use four questions to help frame your brand’s strategy, looking at your competitive position, what is your brand’s core strength, how tightly connected is your brand with your consumer and what is the internal situation your brand faces. • We look at the role of brand strategy in creating a bond, power and profit. • We will lead you through a hands-on workshop that lets you try out concepts on your own brands with hands-on coaching to help you improve. How to think strategically Turning focus into bigger gains for your business Workshop 1: Strategic Thinking
  5. 5. We make brands stronger. We make brand leaders smarter.

A good Brand Plan provides a road map for everyone in the organization to follow: sales, R&D, agencies, senior leaders, even the Brand Leader who writes the plan. • At Beloved Brands, we explain and then show Brand Leaders how to write each element of their Brand Plans, looking at brand vision, purpose, values, goals, key Issues, strategies and tactics. • We’ll show how your strategic options get executed in terms of media, R&D or the brand experience the culture creates behind the promise. • With each key term, we’ll take it on a test run using your brand for the example, giving feedback on the spot. We’ll use a hands-on workshop to put the Brand Plan into a presentation for management and a very tight one page Brand Plan summary document for all to follow.

We’ll teach how to define the target market and build insights to bring their story to life. • We show you the difference between features and benefits, looking at rational benefits (what do I get?) and emotional benefits (how does it make me feel?) • We will show how to turn positioning into a brand concept that can be ready for research testing. • Our hands-on workshop helps you write your brand’s positioning statement with live coaching.

  8. 8. We make brands stronger. We make brand leaders smarter. The brief helps focus the strategy so that all agencies can take key elements of the brand plan positioning to and express the brand promise through communication. • At Beloved Brands, we help the brand leaders take the elements of strategy (from the Brand Plan) and positioning (from the Brand Positioning Statement) to distill it down to a very succinct 1-page Creative Brief. • We start with the role of advertising in changing consumer behavior to drive drive the brand’s bond, power and profit. • Before the brief, we show you how to do your homework with an advertising strategy that combines positioning and brand plan. We then turn the Brand Communications Strategy into a creative brief to produce great communications of the brand story • The hands-on workshop is a great tool for developing creative briefs on your brand, looking at objectives, target, consumer insights, stimulus and response.
