Business Development and Branding

Overview of the Topic

Business development is a broad term applied to the process of strengthening ties with existing clients as well as cultivating customers in other sectors of the consumer market. In order to accomplish this goal, business development normally crosses the traditional barriers between sales, marketing, customer care, operations and management in order to promote this process of expansion on more than one level. This means the business development specialist must exhibit a degree of competence in many different areas in order to identify and capitalize on growth opportunities.

One of the foundational aspects of business development is to assess the current assets of the company as they relate to the maintenance and expansion of the business. To this end, the business development specialist will work closely with sales and marketing professionals to identify the degree of penetration already enjoyed by the company in various sectors of the consumer base.

Business development can be done by understanding several job descriptions, identifying prospective business, establishing strategic partnership and alliances, generating business from the existing accounts and achieving profitability and increased sales, growth. Exploring potential business avenues to penetrate new accounts and expand existing clients.

“Why Business Development and its impact”

Business development involves evaluating a business and then realizing its full potential, using such tools as:

  • marketing
  • Information management (sometimes conflated with knowledge management)
  • customer service

A sound organization aiming to withstand competitors never stops business development says Luis G. Batista, President of LMT Corporation, but engages in it as an ongoing process. However, business development is often related to growth although sometimes the optimal marketing strategy and objectives could be about downsizing the activity in an existing market or decreasing the sales volume of a selected line of products or services. Business-development roles may have one of two modes:

  1. sales-oriented (client-facing); or
  2. An operational function to support sales.

In a sales role, business development could concentrate on developing strategic-channel relationships or on general sales. This emerges from analysis of the varied job descriptions found in job-search engines. In the US, the term "capture management" appears as an alternative job or role title, typically used when describing business development as an operational function to support the selling function of a company. The Association of Proposal Management Professionals has produced the "Capture Management Lifecycle" that describes the process in three broad stages:

  1. pre-bid phase
  2. bid phase
  3. post-bid phase

Small to medium-sized companies often do not establish procedures for business development, instead relying on their existing contacts. Or people in such companies may assume that because they know people in high places that this will solve any business-development problems and that somehow new financial transactions will come to them. Such thinking can have significant ramifications if one cannot exploit those relationships, which very often remain personal or weak. Such a situation may result in no new sales in the pipeline.

Impact on Global Economy

Business Development professionals frequently have had earlier experience in financial services, investment banking or management consulting; although many find their route to this area by climbing the corporate ladder in functions such as operations management or sales. Skill sets and experience for business-development specialists usually consist of a mixture of the following (depending on the business requirements):

  • marketing
  • legal
  • strategy
  • finance
  • proposal management or capture management
  • sales experience

The "pipeline" refers to flow of potential clients developing. Business-development staff assign to each potential client in the pipeline a percent chance of success, with projected sales-volumes attached. Planners can use the weighted average of all the potential clients in the pipeline to project staffing to manage the new activity when finalized. reasons for wins/losses

  • progress of opportunities in relation to the sales process
  • top performing sales people/sales channels
  • sales of services/products

For larger and well-established companies, especially in technology-related industries, the term "business development" often refers to setting up and managing strategic relationships and alliances with other, third-party companies. In these instances the companies may leverage each others' expertise, technologies or other intellectual property to expand their capacities for identifying, researching, analyzing and bringing to market new businesses and new products, business-development focuses on implementation of the strategic business plan through equity financing, acquisition/divestiture of technologies, products, and companies, plus the establishment of strategic partnerships where appropriate.

“Brand says it all”

A brand is the identity of a specific product, service, or business which helps in creating awareness

Concepts

Brand is the personality that identifies a product, service or company (name, term, sign, symbol, or design, or combination of them) and how it relates to key constituencies: customers, staff, partners, investors etc.

Some people distinguish the psychological aspect, brand associations like thoughts, feelings, perceptions, images, experiences, beliefs, attitudes, and so on that become linked to the brand, of a brand from the experiential aspect.

The experiential aspect consists of the sum of all points of contact with the brand and is known as the brand experience. The psychological aspect, sometimes referred to as the brand image, is a symbolic construct created within the minds of people, consisting of all the information and expectations associated with a product, service or the company(is) providing them.

People engaged in branding seek to develop or align the expectations behind the brand experience, creating the impression that a brand associated with a product or service has certain qualities or characteristics that make it special or unique. A brand is therefore one of the most valuable elements in an advertising theme, as it demonstrates what the brand owner is able to offer in the marketplace. The art of creating and maintaining a brand is called brand management. Orientation of the whole organization towards its brand is called brand orientation.

Careful brand management seeks to make the product or services relevant to the target audience. Brands should be seen as more than the difference between the actual cost of a product and its selling price - they represent the sum of all valuable qualities of a product to the consumer.

Brand awareness

Brand awareness refers to customers' ability to recall and recognize the brand under different conditions and link to the brand name, logo, and jingles and so on to certain associations in memory. It helps the customers to understand to which product or service category the particular brand belongs and what products and services are sold under the brand name.

Brand promise

The marketer and owner of the brand have a vision of what the brand must be and do for the consumers.

Brand promise is what a particular brand stands for (and has stood for in the past). It has its roots from the identity that it gains over a period of time. Usually, brand promise is an attribute common to 'Parent' brands. Herein, the brand may broadly stand for Quality, Performance, Trust, or False promises.

Brand variables

The following elements may differ from country to country:

  • Corporate slogan
  • Products and services
  • Positioning
  • Marketing mixes (including pricing, distribution, media and

Branding

Black Turtle website www.black-turtle.com is one of the major sources for Branding and creating awareness about the company, clients and contact details.

Branding is done to increase the awareness as well as to enhance the identity of company.

There is no separate Marketing unit in BT, so in terms of branding website was the only way to promote company to their clients.

Strategies for Branding in last 3 months

Brand message is critical to keep both internal and external imaging and communication on the same page, and to eliminate any gray in communicating what you believe your brand to be and what the consumer or your customers perceive it to be.

There are 2 types of Branding

  1. External Branding
  2. Internal Branding

External Branding:

In an increasingly crowded marketplace as well as to survive with immense competition, communicating brand essenceto customers and consumers is a challenge. By evaluating the messages and desired results for our clients, we create events, experiences and sponsorships that speak directly to customers/consumers, interact with them and allow them to experience brands firsthand. From road shows, press and retail events to trade shows and industry events, it helps brands reach customers and consumers and engage them in emotional and experiential interactions.

Activities done for External Branding of BT

1. Print Advertisements: Print media offers a stark contrast to broadcast media. Because readers consume them at their own pace, magazines and newspapers can provide detailed product information and effectively communicate user and usage imagery. At the same time, static nature of the visual images in print media makes dynamic presentations difficult and print media can be fairly passive.

Format elements such as ad size, color and illustration also affect a print ad's impact. Larger ads gain more attention, though not necessarily by as much as their difference in cost.

For KMO test if the sampling adequacy is less than 0.5 then the model is not significant and if the sampling adequacy is greater than 0.5

then the model is significant.

In our study the KMO measure of sampling adequacy is 0.502 which is greater than 0.5. Therefore the model is significant.

Bartlett's Test of Sphericity:

H0 : All the variables are not correlated

H1 : All the variables are correlated

The null hypothesis is accepted if

sig. > .05

Else the null hypothesis is rejected.

In our study sig. is less than 0.05 therefore the null hypothesis is rejected that means all the variables are correlated.

    Public sector companies mainly go for advertisement in newspaper for recruitment, do not tie up with recruitment consultancy.

    Only active user on job portals can be approached.
