Brand Management

Generic trademark

In marketing, brand management is the analysis and planning on how a brand is perceived in the market, with the goal of developing a good relationship with the target market. Tangible elements of brand management include the product itself (i.e. the look, price, packaging). Intangible elements include the experience that the consumer has had with the brand, and also their relationship with it.

Brand managers create strategies to convert a suspect to prospect; prospect to buyer; buyer to customer and customer to brand advocates.
