About The Book

India is the fastest growing free market democracy in the world. India has the largest knowledge workforce in the world and with more and more people moving to the higher income strata, India is a market that the world cannot ignore. The opening up of the Indian economy has given a level playing field for foreign brands against Indian brands. Several multinational companies have begun to focus their attention on Indian markets. Global brands are threatening the existence of several Indian brands. These brands have strong presence in the minds of the customers globally and have performed consistently for a long time. The current brand strategy followed by business houses in India need a dramatic makeover. In this book authors made an attempt to understand the minds of the Indian consumers and try to evolve a strategy that will closely resemble the Indian outlook. We think that the Indian companies need to fight hard by changing the rules of the game. It would be impossible to challenge the mighty global brands, which have made their way to India, through traditional advertising, market communication and branding. The Indian companies have to respond to these challenges with better strategies and by delivering the brand promise to the customers.

The Indian Organizations have to concentrate on delivering the experiences to the customers leading to satisfaction and association with all the dimensions of the brand. These experiences can be delivered by involving the customer in the supply chain which demands improvement from the organization in terms of training the employees and aligning the culture to deliver value to the customers. The participation of the customers can be ensured by using novel methods of communication and branding. The Profit and Sustainability of Indian Brands will depend on how efficiently and quickly the organization can adapt to these new demands of the customers. Developing a branding strategy can be one of the most difficult steps in the marketing plan process. It`s often the element that causes most businesses the biggest challenge, but it`s a vital step in creating the company identity. Automobiles, jewelry, ready-to-wear, cosmetics, watches and home decor are only a few product categories where exclusivity is validated as a marketing and branding strategy. How to create an effective branding strategy that will help companies shine in a competitive market.
