Brand Promise 3 A brand promise is the statement that you make to customers that identifies what they should expect for all interactions with your people, products, services and company. - Small Business Network, 2007 Simply put, a brand promise is successful when what you tell people they should expect, consistently matches with what those same people “feel” when they complete an interaction with your organization, across any channel.
Brand Promise 4 Define it and live it, across the organization Clearly and consistently communicate internally Make it the basis of every internal conversation and decision Have a plan You’ll be ahead of most Keep it top-of-mind Work to integrate it at every customer interaction, every access/delivery channel, every engagement
