...Brand management Nov 25 - 28, 2012 SALES & MARKETING Brand Management One of the most challenging tasks for brand managers today is to make brands stand apart in the growing clutter. With reducing spending power and conservative spending trends among the target segments, every other brand is vying for its place in the current Indian marketplace.

...Chapter 2 Customer-Based Brand Equity Overview This chapter defines the concept that is the focus of the book. Customer-based brand equity (CBBE) is the differential effect that brand knowledge has on consumer response to the marketing of that brand. Brand knowledge is a function of awareness, which relates to consumers’ ability to recognize or recall the brand, and image, which consists of consumers’ perceptions of and associations for the brand. Building awareness requires repeatedly exposing consumers to the brand as well as linking the brand in consumer memory to its product category and to purchase, usage and consumption situations. Creating a positive brand image requires establishing strong, favorable and unique associations for the brand. The chapter outlines the important contribution of brand knowledge to brand equity. Brand knowledge is composed of brand awareness, which is itself a function of recognition and recall, and brand image, which reflects the associations consumers hold for the brand in memory. Brand awareness is important because 1) it is a necessary condition for inclusion in the set of brands being considered for purchase, 2) in low-involvement decision settings it can be a sufficient condition for choice, and 3) it influences the nature and strength of associations that comprise the brand image. Awareness can be heightened by increasing consumer exposure to the brand and by linking the brand to product category, consumption and usage...

By Mr. Olan Kaewwichit Brand extension (or stretching) is a strategic concept which relates to managing the brand portfolio. In addition, it can be understood as a process by which the practices of branding extend to social contexts beyond the traditional business domain. Critically analyse the purpose, implementation, advantages and disadvantages of brand extension. Illustrate your argument with at least two practical examples of brand extension. Companies must carefully manage their brands. First, the brand’s positioning must be continuously communicated to consumers.

...Brand Management (MKT624) VU Lesson 1 UNDERSTANDING BRANDS – INTRODUCTION Brand management as one of the marketing functions has been around for as long as we have known professional marketing. But, it has been a part of the traditional marketing approach in which many functions of today’s brand management were performed in a spread out fashion by the marketing manager and a combination of his team members like the sales manager, the advertising and communications manager, and the marketing administration manager to name a few. The terminology of brand management was not used. Brand management, in its present integrated form, has come into limelight and focus over the last 20 years. The functional execution has undergone transformation in terms of its description as a substantive job under one head. This implies that the overall functions of brand management are full of substance and therefore are described specifically under the head brand management and not as disparate parts of the overall marketing functions. In other words, brand management has not lost its primary roots that are well-entrenched in marketing; it only has acquired explicitly defined dimensions within which the function operates. To further elucidate the point, there have been functional adjustments within the overall marketing functions only to bring into clear and sharp focus the specific functions and job of brand management. Brand management now presents itself as a distinct part of an integrated...
