Strong Brand Approach
Brand Strategy: There is a dedicated brand strategy with a clear focus, KPIs for target achievement, and a detailed action plan for implementation. The brand strategy is aligned with the overall strategic direction of the company.
Brand Method: I use the right, brand-centric methods to turn problems into challenges and solve them with tested modules and brand tools to independently and continuously make brands strong that connect and resonate with the target.
Brand Process: There is a systematic, integrated and repeatable process from brand to consumers. I work cross-functionally with brand teams instead of in silos and pursue the same goals, achieving the company’s target.
Brand Culture: There is the right culture and mindset for brand management. There is an understanding of “lean” approaches (experiments before experience. “Data trumps opinion.”), and opportunity maximization is balanced with risk minimization. I reveal your greatness and build your business through a perfect storm of intelligent brand strategies that resonate with a brand and connect with customers.

New Brand Thinking is about putting all of your energy and focusing on creating the most compelling, magnetic, and valuable brand strategies that help to achieve brand infinity. How do brands do this? It is a big subject, but this book, as a continuation with my previous book ‘Branding Matters!’ hopefully helps companies, clients, institutions, and brand builders to resonate and connect brands to achieve brand success.
The book is my obligation to my profession and my brand-building passion. It always discomforts me when I observe misconceptions regarding brand building. Each chapter individually discusses and extends guidance on professional dealing and the numerous challenges encountered in brand-building. In Pakistan, several concepts in brand building are not explained adequately. This book aims to address those issues to help my readers better understand brand building.
