Home -N- Linens Site Review – Branding Confusion

Home-n-Linens is a very nice example of a database-driven web application. The designers have also loaded it with a lot of “extras” which should add value to the site, and give prospective buyers a reason to return. The dual photos of the tablecloths (larger view and full view) were thoughtfully provided and nicely executed.

Branding – It’s More Than Just Your USP

When you mention the word “branding” most people automatically think of USP (unique selling proposition). The overall – and incorrect – perception of a brand is that it simply consists of the statement you use to define what you do. Slap your USP on every advertising piece that goes out the door and – tah dah – you’re branded! Not even close.

Industry Pro Interview: Branding – Turning Your Customers Into Evangelists

When you say the word “branding”, most people think USP (unique selling proposition). However a USP is far from the equivalent of a brand as we’re about to find out. What is branding? Is it just for “big boys”? And how the heck do you create one, anyway?

The Five Key Elements Of B2B Branding

Lately, I have come across a number of articles and colleagues pronouncing the demise of B2B branding. I would like to offer a different viewpoint: B2B branding is not obsolete. At the same time, it has to be redefined to fit the context of B2B today.

Branding with a Pay per click Twist

Pay-per-click (PPC) advertising is an outstanding media to use to Brand your mark (company or products). Through search engine browsing, your target prospect comes directly to you, searching for what you’re offering. If you’re in the top few positions the prospect will see your mark over and over again – even if they don’t click on your link.

What’s worse– every tool and technique we’ve spent our careers learning, useless or not, is under new scrutiny: a new, mathematical, quantitative, hard-core, squirm-in-front-of-your-CFO, scrutiny. After the wreckage has been removed even the slowest amongst us will discover it is disruptive marketing that has died.
