- 3. Produced by Kevin Almeida Are brands for all companies? The brand needs to be managed for what it is a company instrument for company growth and profitability, a business tool. For many industrial companies or commodity sellers, the concept of the brand applies only to mass markets, high-consumption products and the FMCG sector. A brand is a name that influences buyers and prescribers alike.
- 4. Produced by Kevin Almeida Differentiating a commodity by the brand Branding is the only strategy to get out of commodity markets. Value Curve- Is a specific set of utilities delivered by the brand to a chosen and well-delineated target. Major world-wide brands are brands that first decommoditized their market. Eg: Coca-cola, Evian Water Decommoditizng by an experiential brand: Eg: Yello (A regional electricity German Company)

- 6. Produced by Kevin Almeida Brand building: from product to values, and vice versa It takes time to build a really strong brand. 1. From product advantage to intangible values. 2. From values to product. Most brand owners wants to create business, based on a very specific product or service: an innovation, a good idea to start. Product becomes a brand; well known and endowed with market power. Simply, it did not designate a person, but little by little came to be associated with imagery, with tangible benefits, with brand personality.
- 7. Produced by Kevin Almeida Are leading brands the best products or the best value curve? To create a brand is much more than simply marking a product or a service, the necessary first step of brand differentiation. Those who try the product must like it enough to make repeat purchases; the product must built brand loyalty. Branding starts from the Customer, and asks, what does he or she value? Eg: Bacardi (One of its key intangible added values is its personality)
- 8. Produced by Kevin Almeida Backing the brand by a business model Competition between brands is often competition between business models. The problem faced by brands is how to differentiate a product that seems generic. Eg: Orange Juice The raw cost of orange juice is high; It creates pressure on margins. Eg 1: Tropicana Premium pricing strategy, Permanent product innovations, Premium Image. Eg 2: P & G High tech approach to differentiate. Introduced Sunny Delight in the fruit juice market. Eg 3: Coca-Cola Is an opaque product. The Cola syrup itself is very cheap to produce. It has allowed high margins and as a consequence high marketing budgets to rein-force its top-of-mind position.

- 10. Produced by Kevin Almeida To grow a business through the expansion of the category the strategy rests of three facets; Availability The distributive lever comes first. Building both business and the brand image is tied to the active presence on premises. Accessibility This is the price factor. In China and India, sell Coke at the price of tea. This is made possible by the low cost of syrup production. To push competition out of the market, Coke company exerts a high-price pressure on the whole market. Attractiveness Non-media communication (relationship, proximity, music and sports sponsorship and on-premise communications) represents the main part of the budget. A brands image is not of the product but of a bond; it delivers both tangible promises and intangible ones.
- 11. Produced by Kevin Almeida The Cola War Coca-Cola main challenger world-wide, Pepsi-Cola is following the same brand and business model. Difference is Pepsi didnt have to create the category since it was introduced more recently than Coke. It challenges the leader in three facets; Price Pepsi is a dime cheaper than Coke, at consumer level, but this creates a higher pressure profitability. Product Pepsi works on palatability and taste to beat Coke. Image Pepsi is younger than Coke. Capitalizing on the only durable weakness of Coke, its advertising positioning makes Pepsi the choice of the new generation.
- 12. Produced by Kevin Almeida Cola War Cont. Richard Branson of Virgin admitted defeat in its war against Coca-Cola and Pepsi in the US. Bransons whole idea was to save on advertising and thus make a cheaper price possible by taking advantage of the Virgin umbrella brand. Virgin only brand asset is its core brand, which has been extended to all types of category. Virgin had a small sales force. Finally, Virgin Cola wasnt able to work in the market without a full portfolio of soft drinks to support it. This is necessary to access the on-premise consumption sector, and is also the only way to make a true national force economically possible.
