Does your brand connect with target customers?

Our client had several products in various product lines that provided a very valuable benefit in their industry, ergonomics. Yet sales of secondary product lines, accessories, and other complementary products were very low, especially when compared to sales of ergonomic products in the primary product line. We created a new brand name, “ErgoMaxx” and gave it to the client (for no additional cost). Then we developed a brand architecture that identified all ergonomic products across all product lines with the ErgoMaxx seal.
To spread the message quickly and effectively, we lead the development of ErgoMaxx collateral, including web pages, specialty brochures, email campaigns, and online advertising. Sales of secondary ergonomic products tripled for two of the products, while average growth for all products now identified as ErgoMaxx averaged 83% growth in the first year.

Personalization is difficult to accomplish and requires flawless execution of a well developed strategy.
Our brand strategy consultants will bring together the right strategy and proven tactics to create your brands personality and bring that brand to life.
The Customer Experience
Every interaction a person has with a brand impacts the brand experience. The experience is the differentiator that led to the success of some of the best known and most respected brands in the world. Brands like Apple, Amazon, and Nordstrom are sought after, because of the quality and consistency of the customers experience with that brand.
The brand experience is not limited to just retail. B2B interactions have as great a dependency on the brand experience as retail does. Corporate purchasing agents and business professionals seek efficient and easy transactions. They want to control the interaction, engaging with the sellers representatives when they want, and how they want. Email, chat, social media messaging, web meetings are all gaining popularity and reducing the number of phone calls and face-to-face visits from sales people. The sellers that make these interactions pleasing to the buyer, are the sellers that gain a strong advantage.
The brand experience encompasses every aspect of the brand, including the website, phone calls, social media, online chat, customer service and each and every direct interaction people have with the brand. It includes the simplest and smallest of details like shopping bags, shipping boxes, charitable and humanitarian activities, literally any activity related to the brand. Our branding experts will consult with your team to develop a unique and valuable experience that will set your brand apart.
