Agency, Branding Agencies, Brand Agency each synonomos one the
others, the purpose of a brand agency is to maximize the
impact of your marketing investment. It is to make your brand work
the hardest it possibly can. This is because your brand is
independent of the money you have available to support it. So the
greatest single value to be gained from a branding agency is the
best brand positioning and communications that your product or
service can support on a sustainable basis.
Both you and your competitors have a marketing budget. Your
advertising and media agencies are there to make your money work as
hard as it can. They can choose different media, or schedule the
media differently, or have different advertising and packaging. But
no matter how hard they try, their ability to increase the power of
your marketing investment is limited. This is because it is your
brand that will most determine whether your prospect will choose
your product or that of your competitor.
How is the brand so different and so important vis a vis your
marketing budget? It's quite simple, really. You might say that your
marketing investment, your advertising and packaging, are all means
to deliver your brand into the minds of your prospects. But it is
what the brand does in the hearts and minds of your prospects that
will determine whether they become your customer, instead of someone
A brand is the meaning that your product or service can have in the
lives of your prospects. The more meaningful, i.e., the more
important the meaning it has, the more thoroughly it is entrenched
in your prospects hearts and minds. This meaning is what is called
positioning in the marketing profession. Positioning is the specific
location in the emotional and mental map of the prospects mind. If
your brand's positioning has the highest emotional and mental ground
in that map, it is much more likely to endear your product or
service to your prospect.
So the brand is what is delivered into your prospects' hearts and
minds, through your budget, through your media, through your
advertising and through your other communications like promotions
and packaging. These means can deliver a brand that works very hard
for you, or it can deliver one that doesn't. Brand is where the
rubber of your efforts meet the road of your prospects hearts and
minds, where their preference for your product or service is
So, when evaluating or choosing a brand agency, you really have only
one question. How powerful can they make my brand, so that it
multiplies the power of everything else I do, like the media I
choose, the scheduling pattern I use, the advertising I use, the
promotions I use, and the packaging I use? More simply put, how much
bang can they give to my marketing buck?
Some of you might be wondering, why do I need a branding agency at
all? After all, my advertising agency says they do brand. Good
question. But here's the answer. And it is a very simple one.
Because only a branding agency focuses on brand. Your advertising
agency must sell you the budget, they must sell you the media, they
must sell you the scheduling plan, they must sell you the ad
campaign, they must sell you the ads, the promotions and perhaps,
even the packaging. And it's very easy for the brand to get lost
among all these things they have to sell you.
We have already seen that the brand is the single point in your
entire marketing effort, that determines whether your marketing
dollar doesn't work very hard or whether it is powerful. So it is
better to assign this crucial point to people who are best at this -
a brand agency.
But you might say, my ad agency doesn't charge me for any work they
do for my brand. They cover it with the money they make from the
advertising budget. Good point. Here's a question to consider. Do
you want to risk the most powerful single point in your marketing
effort, the only one that can make the difference between your
million bucks working as hard as five million bucks - just to save a
few hundred thousand bucks? You get the point.
In a nutshell. You need a brand agency. It is your best way toward
making sure you get the most bang out of your marketing buck!
