Fast Branding is a strategic brand development process that we have developed especially for industry-changing business ideas.
Fast Branding delivers you a practical toolkit (strategic market position, name, logo, tagline, visual identity, sales messaging, website, sales toolkit, marketing collateral) that drives sales and value in your business.
Shaping your innovation in a way that meets a recognised market need and has global appeal. Communicating your future vision and market potential of your business to partners and investors. Persuading stakeholders to invest in you (customers, investors, funding bodies and partners) Changing existing customer behaviour and even breaking cosy supplier relationships. Crafting how you tell your story about the value that your innovation brings. Shifting the market battleground to where your innovation will make the competition irrelevant. Overcoming credibility issues as a new market entrant. Boxing clever with marketing resources than the big players. Entering the right market segment at the right time.

Here are some rapidly growing Fast Brands where we’ve had the opportunity to work with very dynamic teams on complex brand strategies:
‘ Our brand is far more than our image, it’s our strategic market position.’ “ Through Fast Branding the Threesixty team extracted the intellectual capital from our CEO and technical team and transformed it into an offer with a real competitive edge. The brand had made our company vision real. It has defined our direction and now drives our product differentiation. There’s no doubt that it has been a key factor in our success milestones over the past 12 months - landing Europe’s biggest deal, building relationships with the top channel partners in the world and raising €3 million in second-round funding from ESB Modus Novus.” Paul Kelly, VP Sales & Marketing, Nualight
‘ The team of Glanbia Nutritionals and Threesixty has delivered sales growth of a factor of four for Provon Revive.’ “ It was at the stage of commercialisation of Provon Revive that we employed Threesixty to advise on brand identity, positioning, route to market and event execution. The expertise the team brought to the Provon brand from competitor reviews, market gap analysis, visual identity generation, intuitive and e-commerce friendly web design was instrumental to the brand’s success.” Sorcha Tobin, International Marketing Manager, Glanbia Nutritionals
