  The end point of a Marketing Plan is…
  not only better planning. It’s about ...

Marketing Excellence
            Marketing Excellence
“ Many people believe that the basic issue in marketing is …
     convincing customers you have a better product,
     that in the long run the best product will win.

Not true … It’s an Illusion… there is no objective reality. The
      perception is the reality.

 Marketing is a battle of perceptions not products. All that exists in
the world of marketing are perceptions in the mind of customers”

             Marketing Excellence is ...
    Consistently winning the battle of perceptions.

           Is Branding Important?
“Products often struggle to demonstrate major differences in
  terms of clinical benefits … highlighting the need to obtain
  greater insight into user perceptions of brands, and
  factors motivating them to prescribe”

“The company that fails to examine and monitor the equity
  of its brands in the consistently evolving pharmaceutical
  markets, does so at its own peril”.

“Marketing Managers who don’t take account of the
 emotional factors in brand choice and prescribing miss
 the opportunity to maximize the value of their brands”

   The Challenges of Branding?

Consumers buy products but they choose brands.

Consumers form relationships with brands, not products,
and not corporations.

The performance of the product, what it does, and how it
does it, is the core identity of the brand.

But the brand also has a distinctive personality and
character that makes an emotional and trust-based
connection with the consumer and distinguishes it from
competitive brands.

our customers.
