To understand brand marketing, you must understand what a brand is. A brand is a feature that distinguishes one organization from another. Brands are created to meet previously unmet consumer needs, show that your product can do the task better, and/or showcase a technological breakthrough.
Brand marketing is establishing a brand personality and creating emotional connection with its consumers. Brands with a strong image have more market share awareness, command higher prices, have a stronger brand loyalty, garner more positive word of mouth, and change perceived interchangeability.
Good branding also helps to boost employee experience and make your brand desirable to work for. Employees want to be proud of the brand they work for, and solidifying your brand marketing experience will help employee retention and happiness rates.
A brand marketer works to ensure that your brand possesses a strong image to differentiate it from competitors in the marketplace. Brand marketers work with content creators, strategists, creatives, and other parts of the marketing team to make sure your brand’s message is clear and profound. Brand marketers work to develop taglines, logos, symbols, designs, brand voices, and more to engage the consumer and make your brand memorable.
Brand marketers implement this personality into your website, social media, packaging, advertising, and sales and customer service to create a seamless experience between the product and the consumer. Brand marketers also provide a sense of consistency in your brand’s message throughout all channels and advertising.
Brands are more successful when they possess their own unique mindset and message, so it’s important to make sure your brand is differentiated from the rest. A brand marketer is trained to create a clear, strong, and unique message to help better sell your product.
Brand marketers can help establish a strong brand identity if your business is lacking one. Brand marketers can help you:
Determine your target audience
Establish your mission statement
Define your benefits and values
Create visual assets and graphics
Pinpoint your brand voice
Implement your branding into sales

Brand marketers use platforms like Commspoint, Nielsen, and Simmons Insights, as well as focus groups and surveys, to gather data about target audiences, media habits, and insights to apply to brand marketing. Brand marketers also need to know the ins and outs of the industry, from trends to spending to their competition.
Content creation: Brand marketers need to know what content performs well on each medium, ranging from web to social to emails. Brand marketers need to know how their target audience consumes information and what resonates strongly with their consumers. Strong writing skills are a must, as well as an eye for appealing visual graphics.
Graphic design: Brand marketers need to know how to use different tools, like Adobe Illustrator and InDesign, to create a specific look for each brand.
