In the current economic environment, developing a strong brand is more important than ever. However, brands aren't what they used to be. Across almost all industries, brands are having a hard time sustaining price premiums and companies are cutting back on marketing budgets when they should be investing. However, your brand is now living in a 24/7 world. How can you protect your brand and grow your business? A new era of branding is emerging.
We will discuss how to build a stronger, recession proof brand and position you to drive greater sales and profits, regardless of economic environment. Today, it's critical that brands have a better dialog with their customers. Traditional branding isn't enough to expand that dialog and social media has opened huge opportunities and raised major issues for brands. For some, it will help drive growth in your business and for others it could mean disaster. Learn how to better position your brand over the next 12-24 months and see if your brand is ready to incorporate social media as a way to better reach your target customers.
