Establishing a strong brand is one of the most important things you can do for your business. But what is branding? By definition, it is the practice of creating a name, symbol or logo that for a product or service, creating an image in the consumer’s mind. A strong brand should differentiate a product or service from competitors and also provide the promise of quality and reputation in your market. When done effectively, a strong branding strategy will give your company the competitive edge.
Incorporating Six Sigma Methodology with Branding Efforts
The Voice of the Customer (VOC) is extremely critical in understanding what your brand is and its value. Through the DMAIC process and the Define phase, you will begin to understand the customer’s voice, and be able to define the customer’s needs, wants and expectations for your brand.
By knowing the VOC, you can develop a branding strategy that will fulfill your target customer’s expectations and requirements as well as distinguish your business from your competitors. If you don’t take care of your customers, your competitors will. By using the VOC when you begin your branding strategy, you will be able to target the right customers for your business.
