  1. Marketing & Branding Positioning Your Firm for Growth Instructor | Lloyd C. Grant | The KIP Business Report | 646.926.3992

  2. What is Branding? • Your promise to your customer. • It tells them what they can expect from your products or services. • It differentiates your offering from other options. • It’s derived from who you are, who you want to be and how you want to be perceived. Instructor | Lloyd C. Grant | The KIP Business Report | 646.926.3992

  3. What’s the Purpose of Branding? • To increase a target audience’s likelihood to purchase now and in the future. • To saturate positive characteristics into your marketing proposition. Instructor | Lloyd C. Grant | The KIP Business Report | 646.926.3992

  4. What Branding is Not • It’s not about your logo. • It’s not about always using the same colors. • It’s not a jingle or a physical thing. Instructor | Lloyd C. Grant | The KIP Business Report | 646.926.3992

  5. Branding is Like a Chess Game • You always have to be thinking a few steps ahead. • You begin to see the market differently. • You start to understand your position, your competitors position and where your customers are heading. • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l5BnnBOLOUU Instructor | Lloyd C.

  9. Solving a Problem With Your Product or Service • Is your product/service being considered by people as a way of filling a need? • The customer may know they have a need; they may even be aware of your products. But are they considering you? • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zM1IFIe1z5U Instructor | Lloyd C. Grant | The KIP Business Report | 646.926.3992

  10. Are you Attractive? • Do you know why your offering is attractive and to whom? • Every moment someone spends with your product or service is part of your relationship building—your branding. • Is your relevance to your customer increasing or decreasing? Instructor | Lloyd C. Grant | The KIP Business Report | 646.926.3992

  16. Defining Value Features, Benefits and Value Types Instructor | Lloyd C. Grant | The KIP Business Report | 646.926.3992

  17. Know the Difference Between Features and Benefits • Features = What a product is; attributes (Described with an adjective followed by a noun) • Benefits = What a product does; Answers the question: “How will it help me?”; (Uses a verb followed by a noun) Adapted from: The Science of Sales Success; Josh Costell; AMACOM Instructor | Lloyd C. Grant | The KIP Business Report | 646.926.3992

  18. Example: New Home Features Benefits • Close to shopping • Good school district • 14k gold bathroom fixtures • Save time traveling • Develop smart kids; Save money on private school tuition • Impress your friends Instructor | Lloyd C. Grant | The KIP Business Report | 646.926.3992

  19. Example: Banking Services Features Benefits • Online banking • Free checking • Large branch network • Manage your account easily • Save money • Access money anywhere Instructor | Lloyd C. Grant | The KIP Business Report | 646.926.3992

  20. Perceived Value • Customers use emotions, prejudices, preferences, and experiences to assign value to benefits. • Benefits with perceived values are hard to prove or disprove. • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fF3G7vdM2UI • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rRPyvS1TPKQ&feature=related • Benefits with perceived value can have perceived dollar amounts attached to them. The “better” taste of one drink might be worth more than the perceived value of another. Instructor | Lloyd C. Grant | The KIP Business Report | 646.926.3992

  21. Measurable Value • Customers use objective data to assign value to benefits. • When benefits have measurable value, they require more efforts to calculate their worth. • Once calculated, the benefits of measurable value are easy to prove and to sell. • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8TwaTRslsbE Instructor | Lloyd C. Grant | The KIP Business Report | 646.926.3992
