Subject outline

In this subject, you will develop the concept of a product as well as the concept of the brand. Strategic Brand Marketing is the process of organizing marketing activities around the introduction, promotion and optimization of brands and brand portfolios. Since brands are intangible assets, creating and nurturing a strong brand is a challenge. By applying the customer based brand equity (CBBE) model, analysing brand positioning and values and choosing and leveraging brand elements, marketers can design marketing strategies and programs to build strong brands, new brands and brand extensions, and manage brands over time, geographic boundaries and market segments. You will learn to manage a portfolio of brand equities, including the ability to conduct a brand audit, focusing explicitly on the management task. working in small groups and individually assisted by LMS content and in class lectures and tutorials, you will develop the relevant skills and abilities needed to give a competitive advantage within the corporate world.
