Branding a Store shows how to build a strong, independent retail brand identity to remain competitive in today's global marketplace. First the book explains the distinction between retail brands and manufacturer brands, and assesses the increasing conflict between the two. The author explains in detail the potential benefits of a strong retail brand for both the retailer and the consumer. It discusses the factors to consider when positioning the brand: assortment; price; convenience; and customer experience. The author considers the three competitive strategies to follow to build a strong, distinct brand identity: increasing sales; cutting costs; and increasing differentiation from the competition. Then he explains the most effective ways to communicate with the consumer. Finally he offers insights into the future development of successful retail brands.

The late twentieth century saw rapid growth in consumption and the expansion of retailing and services. This was reflected in the number and type of stores and locations, from regional shopping malls and out-of-town superstores to concept and flagship stores. Retail design became an essential part of its success by creating distinctive brands and formats. However, the economic recession in the developed world and competition for consumer goods from the developing world has led to a re-assessment of the growth-led conventions of the retail industry. In addition, the rapid advance of e-commerce and online shopping has created new challenges for physical stores and the communication and distribution of retail brands. The book will provide students, researchers and practitioners a detailed assessment of retail design, taking a distinctive global approach to place design practice and theory in context. Chapters are devoted to key issues in the visual and structural contribution of design to retail brands and format development, and to the role of design in communication. In the course of the book, the authors engage with problems of convergence between retailing and other services and between the physical and virtual worlds, and also changing patterns of use, re-use and ownership of retail spaces and buildings. Retail Design concerns designers and organisations but also defines its broader contribution to society, culture and economy.

Retail Marketing and Branding

A Definitive Guide to Maximizing ROI

Today's shoppers go online to research locations, compare prices or read reviews before they go to a store, and as soon as they are back home, they post details about their shopping experience on Facebook or other social media platforms. Online agencies rave about viral campaigns, guerrilla marketing and 360° communication. IT specialists are peddling one-to-one marketing tools and integrated customer data warehousing solutions. Should retailers care about any of this? The authors of this book firmly believe that they should — but in an environment of accelerating change, even veterans of the retail trade are looking for guidance on how to embrace the challenges thrown up by the evolving retail marketing landscape: How do I combine traditional and new marketing vehicles? How can I stay on top of what my customers want? How can I reach them efficiently? Do they still look at leaflets, or should I shift local marketing funds to social media? How can I leverage unique retail touch points, such as the POS, for value creation? Successful retail management might once have been about ‘just doing it’, but that is no longer the case. This book offers retail professionals practical and robust ways to improve the performance of their marketing function and align marketing investments with business objectives. This book consolidates the know-how of more than 30 practitioners in the field, created and refined over many years together with leading international companies. It covers some of the latest and most sophisticated approaches to the subject, yet it is anything but a theoretical treatise. The authors' hands-on approach and the wealth of case examples make it an essential guide for all consumer-minded retailers.

Living It Up

Our Love Affair with Luxury

Economic downturns and terrorist attacks notwithstanding, America's love affair with luxury continues unabated. Over the last several years, luxury spending in the United States has been growing four times faster than overall spending. It has been characterized by political leaders as vital to the health of the American economy as a whole, even as an act of patriotism. Accordingly, indices of consumer confidence and purchasing seem unaffected by recession. This necessary consumption of unnecessary items and services is going on at all but the lowest layers of society: J.C. Penney now offers day spa treatments; Kmart sells cashmere bedspreads. So many products are claiming luxury status today that the credibility of the category itself is strained: for example, the name "pashmina" had to be invented to top mere cashmere. We see luxury everywhere: in storefronts, advertisements, even in the workings of our imaginations. But what is it? How is it manufactured on the factory floor and in the minds of consumers? Who cares about it and who buys it? And how concerned should we be that luxuries are commanding a larger and larger percentage of both our disposable income and our aspirations? Trolling the upscale malls of America, making his way toward the Mecca of Las Vegas, James B. Twitchell comes to some remarkable conclusions. The democratization of luxury, he contends, has been the single most important marketing phenomenon of our times. In the pages of Living It Up, Twitchell commits the academic heresy of paying respect to popular luxury consumption as a force that has united the country and the globe in a way that no war, movement, or ideology ever has. What's more, he claims, the shopping experience for Americans today has its roots in the spiritual, the religious, and the transcendent. Deft and subtle writing, audacious ideas, and a fine sense of humor inform this entertaining and insightful book.

Two advertising veterans explain the myths about branding—and how even the smallest businesses can benefit by defining themselves to their customers. Branding may be the single most misunderstood concept in marketing. It’s not only for big businesses with big bucks. It’s not about a logo, a color, a font, or a type of advertising. Branding is defining a company’s image in such a way that the customer is left with a single feeling about that business and what they do. Branding is about finding a business’s juicy center. Even small businesses on shoestring budgets and sole practitioners can learn the principles of good branding—an effort that encompasses not just messaging, but multiple day-to-day decisions that shape and build your customers’ perceptions and emotions. With numerous real-life examples and the expertise that comes only from experience, this book guides you to a new way of thinking about your business, and the kind of wisdom that no amount of money can buy.
