Kapferer's Brand Identity Prism
It identifies six key things that you need to think about when developing a brand identity. The prism is also divided in half vertically. Consumers can see the three external elements on the left (physique, relationship, and reflection), but the three elements on the right (self-image, culture, and personality) are internal – they're incorporated within the brand's spirit. 1. Physique:- (what does it do / what does it look like)
The foundation of your brand's identity lies in its "physique. Salient physical qualities which are seen by the target audience-like its colour, shape, logo or anything that brings an image/feeling/ideas in the mind of the consumer when thinking or talking about the brand. It could be visible through tangible facets or it could be the attributes or benefits the product provides.
Eg. Saffola – Heart picture, trusted name, good for health, healthy family 2. Brand Relationships:- (shallow-intense / Formal-informal/advisor-friend)
The relationship a brand has, with its customers, the way each communication relates to its target audience or how brands influence and provide a particular service to its customers.
Eg. Saffola – Nurturing, protective, merry. 3. Customer Reflection:-What he wishes to be seen as / to build identity)
How a customer reflects with a particular brand. Reflection describes how your customers want to see themselves when they use your brand
Eg. Saffola – Health conscious, confident. 4. Brand Personality:- (if it were a person / figurehead)
This defines the brand's personality or character. Here the brand is personified and its traits are perceived in the eyes of the consumer in a particular way. You connect the brand as if it is a person and relate psychological attributes to it.
Eg. Mature, caring, responsible, motherly. 5. Brand Culture:- (country of origin/…...

...STRONG BRANDS How Brand Strategy and Brand Communication Contribute to Build Brand Equity THE CASE OF NAVIGATOR Student: Daniela Yasenova Baeva Supervisor: Professor Doctor Arnaldo Fernandes Matos Coelho May, 2011 Master Thesis in Marketing STRONG BRANDS – How Brand Strategy and Brand Communication Contribute to Build Brand Equity: THE CASE OF NAVIGATOR 1 ABSTRACT In a world of global competition that we are living nowadays, brands are each time more used by companies as a strategy to create value and differentiation and this way to be one step ahead of their rivals. A "brand" is the result of the recognition and the personal attachment that forms in the hearts and minds of the customers through their accumulated experience with that “brand”. These experiences contribute to increased consumer trust and loyalty and allow building strong relationships with the “brand”. By this way, “brands” promote the increase of shareholder value and establish a long-term advantage in the marketplace for organisations. Companies recognise that strong brands are and have been historically associated with accelerated revenue growth and improved returns to shareholders. That is why, each time more organisations focus their strategies on building powerful brands as they represent competitive advantage and they are a key success factor in creating value to the customer and at the same time value to the company. In this regard, this study intends to show how effective brand......

Osborn Professor of Marketing, Tuck School of Business, Dartmouth College, 100 Tuck Hall, Hanover, NH 03755, USA To help marketers to build and manage their brands in a dramatically changing marketing communications environment, the customer-based brand equity model that emphasizes the importance of understanding consumer brand knowledge structures is put forth. Specifically, the brand resonance pyramid is reviewed as a means to track how marketing communications can create intense, active loyalty relationships and affect brand equity. According to this model, integrating marketing communications involves mixing and matching different communication options to establish the desired awareness and image in the minds of consumers. The versatility of on-line, interactive marketing communications to marketers in brand building is also addressed. Keywords: customer-based brand equity; brand resonance; brand building; integrated marketing communications; interactive marketing communications Introduction The marketing communications environment has changed enormously from what it was 50, 30 or perhaps even as few as 10 years ago.

...Nikole Phillips, Jason Wilcox Predict 450 Game Console Brand Equity An analysis of forces involved in Xbox, Playstation and Nintendo brand equity Game Console Brand Equity An analysis of forces involved in Xbox, Playstation and Nintendo brand equity Introduction The successful marketing and revenue generation of products is governed by a host of tangible and intangible factors. As marketing analytics research continues to develop theories and models for uncovering these important components of the product sales cycle, certain components differentiate themselves through importance and impact. Brand equity is one such component and can be described as “the added value endowed on products and services…reflected in the way consumers think, feel and act with respect to the brand” (Kotler & Keller, 2012, p. 243). In an effort to better understand brand equity, this paper analyzes the brand equity properties of the three primary gaming consoles in the United States. The analysis of the gaming console platforms from Microsoft (Xbox), Sony (PlayStation) and Nintendo (Wii) is specifically important and revealing because of several factors. First, the initiation of this paper coincides with the unveiling and soon to be released newest additions to the Microsoft and Sony fleet of gaming consoles, specifically the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. In addition, the three platforms are widely used devices with significant brand loyalty, salience, feelings and resonance among......

Love in the Love of Thee—a Prism Be

...Emily Dickinson views love with an allegorical neatness created in her poem The Love of Thee—a Prism Be. Dickinson believes that it is the prismatic quality of passion that matters, and the energy passing through an experience of love reveals a spectrum of possibilities. In keeping with her tradition of looking at the "circumference" of an idea, Dickinson never actually defines a conclusive love or lover at the end of her love poetry, instead concentrating on passion as a whole. Although she never defined a lover in her poems, many critics do believe that the object or focal point of her passion was Charles Wadsworth, a clergyman from Philadelphia. Throughout Emily’s life she held emotionally compelling relationships with both men and women. The differences in the prismatic qualities of each type of relationship come through in Dickinson’s prism imagery. Morris summarizes these differences in her essay: In one [male prism] the supremacy of the patriarch informs the rituals of courtship, family, government, and religion; in the other [female prism], the implied equality of sisterhood is played out in ceremonies of romantic, familial, social, and even religious reciprocity. (103) In her poetry, Emily represents the males as the Lover, Father, King, Lord, and Master as the women take complimentary positions to their male superiors, and many times the relationship between the sexes is seen in metaphor—women as "His Little Spaniel" or his hunting gun. The woman’s......

...A brand orientation typology for SMEs: a case research approach Ho Yin Wong and Bill Merrilees Department of Marketing, Griffith Business School, Griffith University, Gold Coast, Australia Purpose – This research paper aims to discuss the role of branding strategy in small and medium size enterprises (SMEs). Design/methodology/approach – The literature on traditional brand management and strategic branding are first reviewed. Four critical constructs are identified, namely brand distinctiveness, brand orientation, brand-marketing performance and brand barriers. The literature, in combination with (eight) case research interviews, has been synthesised to develop a new theory of SME branding. Findings – The paper reveals that the theory identifies the ladder of SME brand orientation, moving from minimal brand orientation, to embryonic brand orientation to integrated brand orientation. Further, it is suggested that most SMEs will be on the lower steps of the ladder. A model of the brand strategy process has been formulated, specifying links between brand barriers, brand distinctiveness, brand orientation and brand-marketing performance. The study puts forward some propositions about the pre-conditions to move higher up the ladder, particularly to an integrated brand orientation. Research limitations/implications – The major limitation of this research is that it is based on eight case studies. It is suggested that a quantitative survey be carried out to enhance the......
