Selling benefits through brands

Course Overview

The world’s most powerful and profitable brands win by selling benefits and not features. Competing through benefits helps these brands deliver relevant value to customers. It also enables these brands to distance themselves from competitors who focus on functional features – and so get sucked into price-based competition.

Guided by the Brand Benefits Box – a practical management tool Dr. Coleman has used extensively with clients around the globe – this course will help you think about how you can sell a broad range of benefits through your brands.  Each element of the Brand Benefits Box contains practical tools and templates that will help you - and your teams – apply the insights this course introduces to your organisation.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to think about selling benefits through brands in a structured, sophisticated and scalable way.
