Macro and micro economic factors, cultural differences, changing consumer preferences, rapid advancements in technology, low demand ... why, even the weather may conspire to bring a brand down!

We sympathize, but as a practicing brand consultants, could not help thinking that quite a lot of the damage has been self-inflicted. It is the retail industry's fundamental inability to adopt - and adapt - a clear branding paradigm that has left it with no alternative to ever-increasing tactical quick-fixes for generating customer footfalls.

The shifting sands of Brand Research in India

Most companies that understand and perceive the brand as being central to their activities, base their decisions about the brand on rigorous and vigorous brand research. Yet many marketers and indeed even branding professionals find difficulty in differentiating Brand Research from Market Research. While they understand the importance and power of research in quantifying buyer demand, they are unable to perceive its role and importance in examining the customer's "brand experience".
