GBQ:35 … Great Brand Qualities
Contact Making contact with the customer and prospects via all media, personal and mass communications. Consistency Consistent means “staying the course” time after time, having little variance from one brand experience to the next. Consistency builds trust, reliability, and loyalty. Making contact with the customer and prospects via all media, personal and mass communications. Focus Focus means concentration of effort as summed up in the phrase “doing a few things well”. It also means not confusing the customer. Connection Connection means connecting with a person, a living breathing human being, not a segment, or a target. This connection can either be emotional or intellectual. We see evidence of “connection” as brand enthusiasts surface. Leadership A great brand establishes leadership somewhere, on some beach head. It may be product innovation, or it may be the compelling sincerity of its promise, or the dynamic force of its name and voice .
