Creating challenger brands
Today’s world is populated by major brands that give the impression that little space is left for newcomers, highlights professor Derchi. This saturation leaves little room for mistakes, and huge possibilities for creativity.
Small challenger brands have the unique opportunity to disrupt big industries by constantly evolving and adapting. As technology creates new relationship opportunities regardless of medium constraints, brands become the most important promotional tools for companies looking to grow.
The company culture and values that brands are promoting are directly tied to how the company is perceived by the general public. This also affects overall sales and positioning. The core challenges small challenger brands face today are globalization, digitalization and adaptiveness.
