Brand Positioning

Many brands that we work with face the challenge of trying to enter new markets or communicate more effectively within existing markets. Much of this comes down to the brand’s positioning.

The Benefits of brand positioning

Brand positioning refers to the strategic process of defining how your brand is perceived in the minds of your target audience relative to your competitors. It involves creating a distinct and favourable place for your brand in the market, emphasising its unique selling points and value proposition.


Brand positioning enables you to stand out from competitors by highlighting your unique features, benefits, and values. It helps create a perception that sets your brand apart in the market.

Audience Targeting

A well-defined brand positioning helps attract the right target audience by focusing on the needs and preferences of the most relevant customer segments. This ensures that your brand's message resonates with those who are most likely to become loyal customers.

Communicates Value Proposition

Brand positioning communicates your brand's unique value proposition and the specific benefits it offers to consumers. This helps customers understand why they should choose your brand over others in the market.

Builds Brand Identity

Clear brand positioning helps establish a consistent brand identity across all marketing channels and customer interactions. It creates a cohesive brand image that customers can recognise and relate to.

Increases Brand Loyalty

When customers clearly understand what a brand stands for and how it meets their needs, they are more likely to develop strong brand loyalty. Loyal customers tend to repeat their purchases and recommend the brand to others, contributing to long-term business success.

Key Considerations for Brand Positioning

Brand positioning is typically achieved through a combination of marketing efforts, including messaging, advertising, visual elements, product development, and customer service. The goal is to create a unique and memorable impression of your brand in the minds of consumers, positively influencing their perceptions and purchase decisions.

Market Research

Conduct thorough market research to understand your target audience, their needs, preferences, and perceptions. You’ll also need to analyse your competitors’ positioning to identify gaps and opportunities in the market.

Identify Unique Selling Proposition (USP)

Determine the unique features, benefits, or attributes that set your brand apart from competitors. This could be based on product features, quality, price, customer service, or other factors that resonate with your target audience.

Define Target Audience

Clearly identify and segment your target audience based on demographics, psychographics, behaviour, and needs. Understand their pain points and desires to tailor your positioning accordingly.

Craft Brand Positioning Statement

Develop a concise and compelling brand positioning statement that communicates your brand’s unique value proposition and its relevance to the target audience. The statement should be clear, specific, and emotionally resonant.

Create Brand Messaging

Develop consistent brand messaging that reinforces the brand positioning across all marketing channels. This includes advertising, social media, website content, and other customer touchpoints.

Test and Refine

Once you’ve implemented your brand’s positioning strategy, monitor its impact on customer perception and business performance. Gather feedback and data to assess the effectiveness of the positioning. If necessary, refine the strategy based on the insights gained.

Get your content right, and the channels will all but take care of themselves. It is not enough for content to be superficially on-brand, but rather it must drive the brand’s vision, no matter how ambitious.


It’s no coincidence that the best B2B marketers are endlessly curious individuals who understand the value of research. I’s where every great strategy begins.


There is no better way of capturing incredible B2B or professional service content whilst simultaneously raising awareness and growing credibility, than by engaging with the top 1% of your target market; the influencers.


From SEO to email marketing and webinars to social media, your content needs to be distributed across all the relevant channels as you develop brand into a serious digital asset. Meanwhile, a paid lead generation strategy that limits cost per acquisition (CPA) may also be required, depending on short term targets.


In order to avoid “analysis paralysis”, a small number of headline metrics at both brand and commercial levels should be agreed upon, along with the frequency of updates. We typically find that weekly mini-reports ensure constant momentum without disrupting day to day activity.
