"Brand Experience Mapping for Brand Alignment"
Marketers understand that creating a powerful brand experience is critical to differentiating and strengthening brands. These brand experiences must be aligned with customer expectations and supportive of the brand position. In order to create an effective brand experience, marketers must know how the current brand is delivered across customer touch-points. From there, they must have the ability to describe key service process characteristics objectively, so that the brand experience can be standardized, replicated by employees and monitored. Service characteristics must be communicated so that employees, customers and managers alike know what the service is, can see their role in its delivery, and understand all the steps and flows involved and how the brand is expressed and strengthened in the service process. Brand Experience Mapping is one tool to facilitate the process of delivering a customer experience that enhances the brand.
