Unique and Valuable

Imagine a product that is very unique but does not have any value for anyone. You might agree that this product would not be worth much. Now, think of a product that is very valuable but not unique, then the product would not be worth much either because a lot of competitors produce the same product and there is an over-supply, which causes prices to plummet and margins for the producer become only sustainable for mass production.
In other words, a company has the best selling proposition when its products are unique and valuable to the customers.
The same is true for brands. A brand will need to be unique and valuable, so people feel drawn to the brand.
It is remarkable that big brands have figured out their formula for brand success and are constantly developing their brand to stay relevant. So, it is no wonder that big brands become bigger over time.  Brandz.com analyzes hundreds of brands and creates an annual report for each country and for the world.

3 Steps to Re-Branding Your Company

Sometimes, you hear that a company announces that they are planning a rebranding initiative. You might wonder what exactly this means. Are they changing their logo, their brand colors or maybe even adding some additional brand touchpoints like signage or event banners to the brand?

Rebranding a company can be compared to a person not only changing the person's cloth. It is more like a person decides to go to different restaurants, changing the job, getting new friends or even changing a partner. Here are the three basic steps to rebrand your company:

Did Amazon Jump the Curve–Again?

The new Amazon Cube will be shipped on June 21, 2018. This is the first TV "remote control" that is 100% voice controlled, and it is not a marginal improvement over conventional remote controls. It is certainly considered as a technology and usability jump of magnitudes.
But this is not the first time Amazon jumped the curve. In the mid 90's, Amazon was the first to sell books online and became a major player in the book retail industry. Amazon has announced to implement the delivery of products via drones. These are two more examples where Amazon is creating solutions that are not just improvements of a certain offering. They mark milestones in the evolution of the usage of technology.
Amazon seems to follow the same path as Apple did by doing what Steve Jobs said once: make products not twice as good but 10 times better.
Does your company have the ability to jump the curve? Let's assume you have an insurance brokerage firm. Can you create a service for your client…
