12:00 - 12:30 Huddle: How to make your brand more distinctive
As an agency, Cubo believe in the power of brand distinctiveness. It’s both fascinating and frustrating. When there are so many creative ways you can make brands stand out in the mind, how come so many of them lack distinctiveness? They look and sound similar to competitors, don’t stand out for anything that actually benefits their businesses, and consequently don’t make the most of their marketing budgets. We love outsmarting problems for clients, to create marketing that really works. So we built our own proprietary research methodology to explore distinctiveness in detail, mapping brands’ mental relevance in people’s heads. Join this huddle to discover some of the theories behind it, as well as discussing how you could apply them directly and help your brand stand out more.
Nick Ward, Joint Planning Partner, Cubo

Using her work at Cath Kidston as a case study, Sue will talk through how this quintessentially British high street Brand where international sales today make up a third of total sales, has expanded in markets as diverse as Japan, India and the Middle East. Using often humorous real life examples, Sue will talk through positioning different products in different markets, the importance of adjusting certain areas for the the specific local audience whilst keeping some parts consistent regardless of geography. This will be a must for anyone wanting to understand how to successfully market a brand or product in international markets.
