it's all about the value


marketing strategy

Marketing is at it's purest form, the creation of value. Think about cola. The no-name, brown, soda sold at the local grocery store may be just as tasty as Coke or Pepsi, but in the minds of consumers, the popular branded sodas are worth at least twice as much as their generic counterparts and consumers willingly pay the premium. Coke and Pepsi have spent hundreds of millions of dollars over the years communicating with their target consumer and conveying the idea that the consumer's life will be improved (increased value) if they drink their product. 

Your marketing strategy begins with understanding what motivates your potential consumers and then crafting your brand to have reach and appeal. This is important in every aspect of your branding, from graphics and logos to the look, feel and functionality of your website and mobile site, to the way that you advertise and promote your goods and services.
