Product Development + Brand Development + Social Marketing

The company offers services in product development, brand development & social marketing, and also applies resources in these disciplines to select start-up ventures in exchange for equity through a developmental venture equity program.  Rooted in the ideology that the Internet and its gamut of marketing platforms are in perpetual shift, Brand Knew develops creative digital strategies and proprietary technologies that effectively help bring ideas to market.

This efficiently generates online traction, general brand awareness and offline conversation.

Product Development

Our process is simple, strategic and streamlined.

Brand Development

We refine brands to redefine their relevance.

The word ‘brand’ was originally Old English for ‘burning stick,’ which enabled farm owners to burn their proprietary mark into the hide of animals to establish ownership. Each brand was distinctive and recognizable, which meant that these marks inherently established relative value. Livestock carrying a specific brand constituted an upper echelon owner who treated his animals better, providing conditions more conducive to producing better tasting meat. Word spread throughout the community and this brand became more highly prized, commanding a premium.

Through comprehensive internal review, competitive landscape analysis, and a systematic process of message optimization, Brand Knew helps brands to differentiate themselves from crowds of similar products and initiatives, and to develop emotional relationships with target audiences. These services span logo development, visual marketing campaigns, general design and targeted messaging.

Social Marketing

Creativity is the currency.

The best marketing is conversational, and the greatest points of brand traction stem from social recommendation. Social platforms are only as useful as the creative implementation of content is engaging. Brand Knew collaborates with clients to optimize content curation across both the spectrum of popular social platforms and the lesser known, but equally utilitarian assets. By establishing a holistic strategy that threads a brand’s narrative organically and cohesively across the web’s social properties, Brand Knew establishes emotional, lasting relationships between brands and target demographics.
