Marketing 101 - Effective Branding
In marketing 101, one of the first lessons of marketing is the 4 P's, Product, Pricing,
Promotion and Place. The 4 P's are an essential component to your business or organization
to be successful. DP Promotions inc specializes in the 3rd P, which is the promotion
of your branding campaign.
Branding is an effective marketing tool that can be used for stores, services, and
products. It is the process of creating a connection with your consumers, so that
when they have a need, they think of you to satisfy that need!
Here we will present one case study to show you just how powerful the right promotional
products can be, to promote the branding of your stores, services, and products.
Case Study One - Hammer Bowling Products
I shall pick one random subject for this case study, which will be bowling balls.
This case study can also be applied to many other subjects such as beer, carbonated
beverages, shoes, clothing, stores, sport teams, sports equipment, cars, aftermarket
products, unions, organizations and much much more.
There is a company in Hopkinsville Tennessee called Hammer, which designs and manufactures
a line of bowling balls. Now I don't use Hammer products personally anymore, nor
do I care for them, but I must admit that their marketing mix with the 4 P's (Product,
Price, Promotion, Place) is extremely successful.
I was bowling with some guys in a league, and the subject of bowling balls came up
because others noticed that I had bought new equipment. Steve had indicated that
he needed to replace his equipment soon, because it was outdated now. I looked at
Steve, and noticed he was wearing the Hammer Hat, had a Hammer Jacket, and sported
2 Hammer ball bags and 4 Hammer bowling balls. So I asked Steve if he was going
to buy another Hammer Bowling ball, and sure enough, the answer was yes.
One of the successful bowling ball lines that Hammer makes is called the Black Widow.
Hammer was clever in not only promoting the company name, but completely promoting
the Black Widow brand as well (Effective Branding). Steve had the Black Widow
shirt on that night, and had a Black Widow 2 ball tote bag with 2 Black Widow balls
This phenomenon of emotional dependence seems to be quite constant, and doesn't
surprise me anymore. There seems to be a correlation between consumers selecting
a manufacture to be loyal to, and then promoting the selected brand as well. When
they find out that promotional products are available that match their equipment
company or brand, they rush to the store to buy it, and proudly display it for others
to see. The majority of people or consumers seem to automatically develop extreme
brand loyalties to many aspects of their daily life, to products or services they
think bring them success, or provide a much higher symbol of social status. Perhaps
sub-consciously, they want the world to know that this is there gig, of one of the
things they are passionate about.
Your promotional products, if done correctly, can produce the same results as well
(emotional connection). If your company has the right product that works well or
provides instant gradification, then you can apply the same methods as well to produce
the same results. The end result will be exponential growth and revenue, and will
solidify your position in the market.
This is the Hammer product line. Keep in mind that Hammer is in the bowling ball
business, but has successfully created a line of promotional items that revolve
around it (Memorabilia’s), and actually sell these items at a slight profit. Let’s
look at some of the items closer in detail.
The shirt is a nice dry excel knit with a 2 color design. It has the Hammer logo
on the front, and one of the sleeves. This shirt sells for $48.95.
The 2 ball tote bag is made from 600 Denier polyester, and has an adjustable pull
strap. It's very spartan as features goes, and is MIC (Made in China). It has large
3 color spider web embroidery on 1 side and the street price is $22.99.
This bowling ball really has no practical use what so ever, but can be used as a
spare ball. I suspect that Brunswick makes the ball for Hammer, and it sells for
a loss at $52.49.
