It’s hard for brands to resist wanting to be better than the competitor in their brand messaging, and the trap hides in the most unexpected of places.
Faster, cheaper, easier, more responsive, superior service, voted #1, top rated, guaranteed… these are all just other ways of saying “better” without saying it outright.
But when you focus on being different, not better, you shift the paradigm. A shifted perspective allows you to uncouple from all of the rules that put your competitor in the spotlight, and build a brand that changes the way people behave.
Concept Bureau will blow your mind. Through their methodology of research, competitive analysis, extensive knowledge of culture, and overall smarts distilled the essence of our brand. They unearthed and discovered all the things that make our brand special. It’s a great feeling to have our brand be understood on such a deep level. This strategy puts us in a league all our own for the long term. Can’t recommend them enough.
