Product Description

In today’s fiercely competitive business environment, a brand is more than just a product or logo; when managed effectively, it can become the key to an organisation’s success. While there are numerous international textbooks on branding, many of them focus on American or European contexts, often neglecting the unique nuances of the South African market. This textbook seeks to fill that gap by providing a comprehensive exploration of the intricacies involved in building, nurturing, and sustaining brands within the dynamic South African landscape.

South Africa, with its diverse languages, cultures, and identities, presents brand managers with a distinctive set of opportunities and challenges. The ability to create brands that resonate with consumers and establish a meaningful connection is essential for success in this multifaceted environment.

This textbook is designed to equip students, marketing professionals, and aspiring entrepreneurs with the knowledge and tools necessary for effective brand management. Key topics covered include:

–        An introduction to branding concepts

–        The significance of crafting a brand’s image, identity, and positioning

–        Strategies for developing and managing brand architecture

–        Approaches to building strong brands through brand equity and the brand value chain

–        Designing marketing programs to enhance brand equity

–        Measuring brand equity and performance using various approaches

–        Considerations for brand contact planning and constructing effective contact plans

–        Branding in the digital era, with a focus on the African and South African context

–        Strategies for international branding

–        Perspectives on branding in the service sector

–        The importance of internal branding and employee engagement

Each chapter incorporates practical examples to illustrate theoretical concepts, and it includes a relevant case study and questions for students to reinforce their understanding.

This textbook is the result of extensive research and collaboration with academics from various South African institutions, including the University of Johannesburg, North-West University, UNISA, and Vega School, offering a diverse range of expert viewpoints. We invite you to embark on a journey of understanding, developing, and managing brands within the South African context through this comprehensive resource.
