Brand identity and brand development for industrial and B2B organisations.
When we started consulting over 28 years ago, very few industrial organisations appreciated or cared about 'branding'; but things have changed.
Manufacturers, technology firms, engineers, and service providers - now increasingly understand the power of branding as an 'intangible' asset contributing to company value.
Branding (or brand identity) is more than just a logo (or trademark), it is the collective understanding and perception of your company from the market's perspective. It's more than just achieving a share of mind; it's also about being understood. The logo and consistent use of other brand elements (typefaces, visual themes and colour palette) provide a distinctive identity for your business.
The careful orchestration of your brand values and capabilities through corporate behaviours and marketing communications shapes the market's collective understanding and perception of your organisation. Branding is a central plank in your marketing strategy.
At JWPM, we assist industrial organisations to develop their brand strategy, beginning with an understanding of the current brand positioning - and aspiration, conducting brand research within customer segments, and attributing brand values and brand personality, through to the selection and design of suitable brand identity; we have expertise in industrial branding.
If you need justification for why you should invest in industrial branding consider this; tender evaluation is strongly influenced by brand perception.

In many industrial markets, with multiple competing brands across various product and service categories, a key driver for a company’s future success will be continued brand awareness and engagement. Brand Engagement goes hand in hand with Customer Engagement and Customer Experience in helping to create a deeply emotional and rational connection between business and customer.
Branding seeks to create a differentiated offering, to shift and shape perceptions of the organisation within its customer base.
Brands are built in the collective minds of your customers. Brand and reputation are interlinked, and the key to earning customer trust. Building strong industrial brands requires a deep understanding of the marketplace, insights into customer perceptions, and a well-executed creative strategy.
