Why you should use a branding & marketing strategy

In times when dozens - if not hundreds - of possible brand expressions on different channels are within reach, a branding and marketing strategy can help you bring order to the chaos. How does your branding fit into the constraints of social media? Which tone of voice suits your organisation best? And how do you protect your brand’s reputation?

Start from a clearly defined strategy, and a flawless execution will follow organically. (Okay, maybe it's not that simple, but it will surely help you get started.)

At iO, we build brand frameworks for international organisations every day and provide the solid base for local entities to build upon.

Your brand strategy determines the impact your brand should have on society and the role you aim to play - locally, nationally, or even internationally.

Brand positioning on social issues: dos and don'ts

Just about every brand has a mission and a vision. They know very well what they want to stand for. The only problem? They often don't know how to convey that message. How best to translate their brand story into actions.
