Creating brands for Places
We help government authorities in country brand strategy and management, driven by our long-standing research in the field.
what is places branding
The last two decades have seen cities, islands and even countries very aggressively branding themselves in order to create a resonating identity among stakeholders and build sustainable customer relationships that last a lifetime. There are many benefits from branding of places.
Places & country branding refers to a process in which a country claims a distinct brand positioning in the minds of its citizens, international stakeholders and the global customer. To claim such a positioning, the country invests resources in coordinating and integrating a multitude of activities. The result of a successful country branding strategy is the unbreakable association of a country with a certain practice, identity or quality. Take for example Germany. The country is known across the world for precision engineering and high quality, so much so that German cars such as the BMW claims German engineering as one of its unique selling points.
To achieve this global brand positioning, Germany ensured that it trained the best engineers and invested in developing the required research and development facilities and cutting edge technological infrastructure. The government also facilitated regulatory assistance for Germany to emerge as the leader in precision engineering.
Country branding trajectories are closely tied to a country’s economic situation, regulatory frameworks, dominant cultural roots and customer mindsets. It is therefore strategically important and should be on any government’s agenda in striving for its country’s progress.
