Brand diagnosis is critical for brand strategy

Written by Carl West

Brand diagnosis for brand strategy

To manage your brand properly, you must allocate a chunk of time ahead of each financial year to conduct a good brand diagnosis, the process for mapping the battlefield.

Your diagnosis can help you discover, test, and track the steps and conversion rates within your purchase funnel, establish positive or negative brand associations that need addressing, define key emotional and rational purchase triggers, measure the strength of your design codes and more.

Your diagnosis should also mitigate your marketing investment risk by removing any subjectivity, ensuring your decisions are evidence-based to enable a beautifully effective strategy to be developed. Consider using some, or all, of the following in your annual diagnosis.

  • Brand heritage
  • Founders vision
  • Secondary insights
  • Qualitative research
  • Quantitative research
  • Market segmentation
  • Brand tracking survey
