Guidelines in New Blue Paper and Podcast
(OSHKOSH, Wis.) – Looking for an effective way to educate employees about your brand? The newest Blue Paper™ and podcast from promotional products retailer 4imprint, Anatomy of a brand: Establishing and communicating brand guidelines, offers businesses and marketers everywhere an opportunity to learn how to do just that.
According to a survey conducted by Marketing Sherpa and reported by eMarketer.com, the average corporate marketing budget devotes roughly $53,000 per year to building a brand and creating awareness.
“The branding process is a significant investment for all involved,” shared Greg Ebel, vice president of sales and marketing for 4imprint. “That’s why we wanted to create a paper that companies and organizations can use to help them think about how to set guidelines and protect their brand.”
In this Blue Paper and podcast, 4imprint goes beyond the high-level discussion of the branding process to focus on one very important aspect of branding: Brand guidelines. Specifically, topics explored include:
• Internal brand research needed for effective brand guidelines;
• The top ten elements of brand guidelines;
