The aim of the research was to identify the means of minimizing the risk of failure for companies when entering foreign markets and choosing a brand name and logo. Two surveys were first conducted: "Brand name suggestions/semantic test" and "Brand logo suggestions/semantic test", with 82 and 34 suitable respondents, respectively. Four interviews were conducted with some of Reklame Žarn's existing customers. The interviewees answered questions about the company's existing group of products or services to represent the future brand, with the aim of gaining a better understanding of the company's products and services market position, strengths and weaknesses.
The practical part provides an interpretation of the key findings from the theoretical and empirical parts. A brand identity and brand elements were created based on previous findings and current know-how. An analysis of the current brand positioning was conducted, initial steps for the branding strategy were defined, and a market entry strategy was chosen.Najdeno v: ključnih besedahKljučne besede: international brand, B2B brand, narrow market segment, brand identity, brand strategy, market entry strategy, marketing researchObjavljeno: 04.07.2019; Ogledov: 47; Prenosov: 1 Celotno besedilo (1,95 MB)
