As products become increasingly similar, companies are turning to branding as a way to create a preference for their offerings. Branding has been the essential factor in the success of well-known consumer goods such as Coca Cola, McDonald's, Kodak, and Mercedes.

Now it is time for more industrial companies to start using branding in a sophisticated way. Some industrial companies have led the way... Caterpillar, DuPont, Siemens, GE. But industrial companies must understand that branding goes far beyond building ...
The word brand has continued to evolve to encompass identity - in effect the personality of a product, company or service.
Branding for Business-to-Business Companies
When you think of a great brand, what comes to mind? Some of the most valuable brands in the world today include Google, Microsoft, Coca Cola, IBM, McDonalds, Apple, and China Mobile 1. These companies have successfully built brand equity and are well established in consumer’s minds. But who are their customers? Are they individuals, or are they other companies? Your target consumer determines your brand strategy, and there are key differences when branding for business-to-business (B2B) as opposed to business-to-consumer (B2C) companies. One main difference between individuals and businesses as consumers involves how ... market research, surveys and trends

Focus On Brand | B2B Brand Marketing… Bringing It All Together
I Very much enjoyed the event, “Combining SEO and Video to Drive Awareness and Lead Generation Online” sponsored by Business Wire. The panel of experts provided facts, insights, advice, and predictions on the place of video in marketing communications. The event opened with an eye-opening question, “How many in the room have looked at a video online in the past month?” 100% of attendees raised their hand. We then viewed a video provided by David Meerman Scott, author of “The New Rules of Marketing and PR”, which showed the question being asked in Japan, London, Boston, and San Francisco with similar near 100% response. Some ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Given these perimeters, there was little need to spend extra money on branding. Not so today. The above ...

The firm’s brand is one of its biggest assets, so in addition to looking at core functional/operational/technical capabilities, we’re taking a brand-based approach to identifying new products/services. Business lore is full of B2C brand extensions, but there are far fewer B2B examples, so here are my 2 questions: § Can you think of any B2B businesses that have created successful brand extensions? § In addition to licensing, what other ...
Small Business Blog - B2B - Skip the Social Media Marketing
If you’re running a B2B enterprise, scratching your head and wondering how you’re supposed to take advantage of social media tools such as Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter – you’re not alone. Aside from the fact that online social media is irrationally hyped (60 percent of Twitter users abandon the service after the first month) it’s an especially bad marketing fit for B2B. Asked to comment on the Twitter statistic, one B2B marketer said, “Most users of social media for business don't realize the time commitment and demand for resources associated with it. After a month or so they lose interest and don't update it. Any ...
