Successful brands have certain characteristics, according to De Pelsmacker et al. (2013).

Successful brands have certain characteristics, according to De Pelsmacker et al. (2013). For example, they are clearly differentiated from competitors’ brands, and consumers perceive them as unique. Usually their positioning is based on high quality and added value. Marketing communications strongly influence the building and maintaining of successful brands.

For this Shared Activity, you will analyse the key traits of a successful brand of your choice. You will focus on brand equity and critically comment on the role of marketing communications in successful branding.

To prepare for this Shared Activity:

Review Chapters 1 and 2 in De Pelsmacker et al. (2013).

Read the Luxton et al. (2015) article from The Journal of Advertising.

Select a brand (product, service or company) that you consider successful.

Evaluate your selected brand by applying the main characteristics of successful brands as outlined in the lecture notes and the course readings.

Consider the dimensions of consumer brand equity outlined in the course readings as they relate to your selected brand.
