3 A brand is the sum of all the associations about a product, service, or organisation that live inside a consumers mind

4 The richer and more focused the associations the more powerful the brand

5 You dont own your brand…your consumers do. Without the associations in their heads all you have is a product, service or organisation

6 Your job is to shepherd, marshal and direct all those associations so that they are richer and more productive

7 Why bother?

8 Monopoly

9 Monopolies are good for businesses because in monopoly conditions businesses get to name their price…

10 …within reason

11 Few of us operate in actual monopoly conditions

12 But we can create effective monopolies…

13 …if consumers want our brand enough to resist substituting it even when it is priced at a premium to the alternative

14 Innocent dont have a monopoly over smoothies but they do over Innocent – no one else can provide consumers with the innocent brand

15 1 litre of Innocent smoothie at Ocado £ litre of PJs smoothie at Ocado £2.79 Innocents share of the UK smoothie market 48%

16 Similarly Apple dont have a monopoly over MP3 players but they do over IPods

17 Ipods share of the UK MP3 player market 80% Cost of a 30GB IPod at Micro Anvika £219 Cost of a 40GB Gigabeat MP3 player at Micro Anvika £149

18 You can usually tell if a brand is healthy if it is being sold at a premium

19 Or if the consumer is happy to make another trade off, like the shopping experience at Ikea or the lack of allocated seating on Easy Jet

20 Brands are brilliant but…

21 They must have substance not just image

22 Innocent make great smoothies Apple make great mp3 players

23 And these days no brand is invincible faced with a superior competitor

24 Hoover thought they had a great brand until Dyson arrived and stole their lunch
