There are many telltale signs of a brand and consumers should be able to properly identify a brand based on values it represents. In fact, different brands essentially represent different values. As an example, there are brands that represent low-end or high-end brands, depending on how a company seeks to position itself in the market. It can be rather challenging for start-ups to determine their values in the existing competitive market. In this case, they need to make decisions on whether they need to position their brand higher or lower, based on overall perception or pricing. In general, it is acceptable to position our brand lower, because many consumers prefer to purchase affordable products.
For example, affordable, low-end cars can help new families who may not be able to afford more expensive cars. There are also cars that can support disabled people. When incorporating values to our brands, we should make the choices of our brand to determine what marker segment we seek to target.
The value of our brand should be expressed in a much more measurable way. Values of our brand could be somewhat sensitive to new products we introduce. Values of our brand could emanate from how our products are developed and designed. However, there are times when we need to modify the values of our brand by offering exclusivity, such as delivering limited products that can increase our overall values.
It should be noted that pricing has a significant and special connection with our brand values. Higher pricing may ensure higher values for our brands. We may also incorporate narrative into our brand to shape our values. Narratives of our brand may describe how durable our products are and how celebrities are satisfied with them. Narratives can heavily affect our brand values and this will help us to connect with consumers on a more personal level. In general, branding relates completely with our perceptions and feelings.
With good values, we can translate our brands based on personal representations. This could result in personal disposition towards our brand this could eventually encourage the act of buying. Marketers shouldn’t deny consumers’ instinct that could specifically their buying decisions on a more personal level. We want to convince the ordinary Joes and Johns to purchase our depending on their preferred product values.
It should be noted that this can also be applied for non-profit organization and the overall representation of brand value shouldn’t venture too much from the business point of view. Non-profit organization could seek to reach specific actions and these actions could be associated with specific mental actions, such as the willingness to provide charity.
There are clearly personal relations that can have ultimate sales implications. We shouldn’t forget other things, such as personal emotions can have much wider consequences. Values in our brand should make people believe that they can have more concrete representations of their lives. This could involve the simple act of shopping in our store or ordering a large batch of products.
