Your brand is your promise to the customer. Your brand should express the essential value of your firm, product, or service by communicating a key set of characteristics, values, and attributes that customers will associate with you. By closely aligning these with the work you do, you make it easy to keep your brand’s promise to the customer.
Branding is strategic while marketing is tactical. A strong branding strategy remains consistent over multiple marketing campaigns. A Consistent branding strategy will allow you build brand equity. Brand equity will add value to your products and services above and beyond what they would otherwise have. Strong brand equity creates loyal customers — customers who will choose your product over an identical product from a competitor simply because they trust the promise of your brand identity. As a new entrant to the Chinese market, you will in many ways be starting from scratch. This can be a challenge. But it is also a great opportunity to reevaluate your branding strategy. Whether you end up creating a new brand entirely, or tweaking an existing brand, evaluating your brand with the Chinese market in mind will pay dividends later down the road.
Benefits of your product
This where you can highlight your products and services. Explain what makes them unique and how the customer can benefit. Most importantly, how you express the value of your offerings should connect directly to your brand and should apply to every one of your offerings.
Set clear goals about what you want for your brand through your entry into the Chinese market. Since Chinese cultural values can differ greatly, it’s important to consider this question carefully. If you can connect your brand to cultural values that are more strongly felt in China, it may be an easier path toward success.
3 Keys To A Successful Brand
Successful brands have aligned themselves with the values of their target audience. Before building your brand, take some time to understand who your target consumer is. Understand what turns them on and what turns them off.
Your brand is your firm’s identity. Stand out by being unique. What more is there to say? Competitive analysis can help here, especially for firms new to the Chinese market. Make sure your brand stands out.
Especially when entering a vastly different culture, pay attention to this aspect of your brand. It may be natural to express passion for your work in your native language.
