What does Brand Management entail?
The basics of brand management involves a number of different processes, all of which are meant to help someone run a business better understand how people perceive their brand and then, once they believe they do, implement advertising and marketing changes to service that perception.
Management of a brand varies based upon the brand, of course—some brands have to deal with a much more sensitive public perception than others.
Brand managers often involve brand strategists who will research the brand itself, interview and do focus groups with customers and clients while also doing their own analysis based on the brand’s competitors. Once that information has been gathered, a roadmap and plan will be created by the brand management team, ideally with the implementation to improve the brand’s image or keep it holding steady.
Of course, there is a certain amount of unpredictability that every brand must constantly deal with in an ever-changing marketplace.
