Brand Building to Improve Value

Brand Building to Improve Value

Today’s discerning consumer is looking for products that provide a superior value, particularly in this tough economic environment. Creating a superior value equation is more than just price – it is a combination of product benefits/performance, price and conceptual positioning of the product.

Superior value is a holistic proposition that must be designed and measured holistically versus a relevant competitive set. Superior value offerings range from high-end, new skin care offerings sold for the first time in the mass outlets at a new higher price tier but at a better value than expensive department store brands, to creating an entry-point price offering to attract new users to a category.

In all cases, a better value proposition begins with delighting the consumer, providing the right benefit at the right price and communicating the benefit in a relevant manner.
