The Key to Brand Positioning
At Image India, there is a holistic approach towards branding. As a brand positioning agency, we believe in diving deep and researching on all the 3 C's required for developing an effective brand positioning statement. The 3 C's entail your customer, channel and your competition. The channel is the primary venue of interaction with your possible consumer and competition so it helps in understanding the market and building the ideal buyer profile.
The positioning strategy adopted will always be in a context of the category the business operates in. All the marketing material of your competition is looked into. A positioning statement can often appear in a prominent place on the homepage of a website, in a print media, electronic and outdoor. Mapping down the distinctness of each of your competitors and the brand language they adhere to, help in understanding the gaps in communication. At times cross-category competition studies also enrich our understanding of market perceptions which further fuels the positioning strategy. For instance, you can do what everyone's doing yet spell it out differently. Instead of saying what all washing detergents were saying about being the best stain fighter, Surf Excel took the opposing route and positioned itself strongly saying, "Daag Achhe Hain."
The brand positioning statement should also benefit the target audience, hence the need for studying the most important C which is the customer. When you talk directly to the customer's concerns, your target audience will listen to your message. For instance when, in the 1990's, Dettol introduced itself as medically tested and a guaranteed protector against germs which can trigger at least 100 illnesses. That was such a sound positioning strategy at the time that later Savlon couldn't capture the market share Dettol already had.
Today, the masses are overwhelmed by marketing messages. So it is not enough to just stop at proclaiming you're No. 1. The best way to test a positioning statement would be to ask 'Why No.1?'
