Why is Brands For Good so focused on Brand?

Brands For Good realizes it is critical for SMEs to enhance their Branding & we are on a mission to empower our community through Brand Strategy capabilities.
What is a Brand?
Different people have different definitions for what a brand is. It doesn’t matter what your definition of a brand is but in order to build a strong brand, everyone in the company must have a common definition.
Alternatively, you can use this definition:
A brand is just an idea that exists in the minds of your customers that is closely linked to your brand. For example: Google = Search Engine; eBay = Online Auction; Oracle = CRM.
If your company owns a simple and powerful idea in the minds of customers, you have a strong brand. If you don’t own an idea, you don’t have a strong brand. It’s as simple at that.
2. What is Brand Strategy & Why is it Important for SMEs in Singapore?
Brand Strategy is all about these 3 things:
1. How well the brand is positioned in the minds of customers. The Brand Position is made of 6 critical components such as Vision (the future the brand wants to create); Mission (what the brand does every day in terms of Products, Processes and People in order to realize the Vision); Category (the space that the brand wants to dominate); Brand Values; Enemy Definition (the No. 1 Problem the brand is here to solve); and Value Proposition (the No. 1 benefit that brand brings).
2. How highly-differentiated the brand is versus its Top 10 Competitors.
3. How well the brand communicates its Brand Position and Brand Differentiator.
There are 2 ways to grow a business. One, build a strong brand that is well-positioned, highly-differentiated and clearly-communicated. Two, sell cheap. If you don’t have a strong brand, you will have to sell cheap. If don’t have a strong brand and yet you can’t sell cheap, the company will eventually be forced out of the market by the competition.
