Brand Strategy

Is Your Brand Underperforming?

For more than 30 years, Brunner has found that brands underperform for one or more of these reasons:


Lacking a clearly defined core strength you can rally around.

Not understanding the emotional connection your core audience is seeking.

Taking on the competition by sounding the same.

Lacking consistency in your brand communication.

Not measuring the impact of marketing on your brand equity.


Our five-step approach to brand strategy has helped clients in all of these areas.
