Our DNA is Brand Centric, Marketing Focused, & Strategically




The Page Group is committed to the long-term success of the strategic plans and brand strategies developed for client companies. We believe that successful branding today is about consistent brand messaging throughout the organization at every touch point where the brand connects and influences the consumer.    It must bring added book value to the company when successful, and it must connect the consumer more closely to the brand, products, services, and organization than we began.

We also believe that the results must be measurable and effective.  We need to be able to measure the response and understand the results generated from the efforts put forth.

At The Page Group we believe very strongly that a company, its products, its service and its reputation is only as good as the brand attributes associated with them by the end consumer and they MUST BE consistent everywhere the brand communicates and connects with the consumer.

Today’s Brands

Our company analyses, develops and executes brand strategies for our client companies.  We develop their strategic plans and tactics for implementation strategies to better connect their brand more closely to their core consumer (B2B or B2C).   We understand that knowing the brands core customer is the singularly most important element in building and implementing a strong brand campaign, and we work closely within our clients organization to make sure we have a focused, consistent, comprehensive, and effective strategy in place.

Social Branding

In today’s marketing and brand structure social media has become central to many strategies, but The Page Group believes that social media must be analyzed to assure that it brings with it value that builds our brand connections with the core consumer.   It further must be done so with a real goal and strategy in mind.

Many business follow the trends investing thousands of dollars into chasing the new fad without understanding the core relationship necessary to be successful in pursuing that strategy.   We are seeing today that although Social Media is the dominant buzz word in marketing that in many cases there is no business strategy tied to the program. The company is just following the trend or fad.   There is no measurement of results.   There is no understanding of how it is going to enhance the brand and its brand connection to the core audience of the brand.  We don’t see opportunities to activate some action on behalf of the customer.   072703 014Nor, have they looked at the fundamentals of what is the ROI on an investment into staff, technology, and support for some social media efforts.   The Page Group focus on the core strategy first, understanding the fundamentals that MUST BE Achieved before an investment is made.    Identifying how this strategy is going to perform, and how it is going to enhance that relationship.  In some cases we will find that Social Media is not right for every business.   But when the trigger for developing a strong social media campaign is reached then we know we have the strategy in place, the measurement tools ready to read results, and the activation plans in place to build an opportunity for a true ROI on the investment made into the space.   Not just another expense item on the balance sheet.

silo - Version 2What is your “Brand Silo”?

When first evaluate clients customers and brands to assure that their Brand Silo is properly in focus, and that the clients brand has a consistent brand message, and connection, between the brand and the consumer.   We want to assure that ta consistent brand philosophy is presented throughout the corporation at every touch point with their consumer.

The Brand Silo is where we manage the core brand message, and evaluate all the Brand connecting points to your core customer.

The Page Group focus’s on making sure there is a consistent brand message developed and executed across all touch points within what we call the corporate “Brand Silo”.    This Brand Silo run’s vertically through an organization and reflects where a company stores its Brands DNA, and where the consumer comes in contact with the brand, its brand message, and has a direct connection to the brand itself (both from internal and external connections).

We further believe that the strongest brands in the marketplace are those that have developed their brand strategy and have very closely aligned it with their fundamental business strategy.  They then leverage that connection to truly communicate to the marketplace who and what they are as a brand to their audience.

The alignment of Brand and Business Strategies will impact the maximum value that your company may achieve in this competitive marketplace, and help to differentiate your company, brand, and products more clearly from the competition.

Goal in Brand Development: 

To create a believable brand story that aligns itself with the business principals of your company while remaining relevant to your audience, and builds a “Brand Connection” between you and your customer (B2B or B2C)

Goal with respect to your “Brand Silo: 

To make sure that every place that your company touches or influences the consumer presents your core brand message (your Brand DNA) in a consistent, relevant, and effective way to support the values that the consumer has associated with your brand.  Failure to do so even once can immediately affect your relationship with the consumer in a negative way.

Licensing is an integrated part of Brand Development. The Page Group has taken its brand consulting practice one step further than its competition because it believes so strongly that Licensing is an integrated part of the overall brand strategy for a company. A new product can gain immediate awareness, revenue, security, and impact by licensing a well known brand name and trademarks. 

Wise use of PR and Social Media can “create” a brand of a correctly positioned new product, or service, by the the use of the correct license. 

Existing brands can generate significant revenue and new awareness / users by licensing their mark to other products in different channels.

Existing brands can secure their marks from infringement in categories they don’t currently sell or market in.   Licensing protects your trademark?

Brand licensing builds “Brand Connections” with its core consumer, and others, in new markets and channels.  Brings consumers closer to the brand.

The Page Group believes strongly that for many companies a strong Licensing strategy can become an integrated structure within your corporate branding strategy.  Most companies look at licensing purely as a revenue resource, but The Page Group feels it offers much more value through the impact it brings to the brand and its connection with its core consumers.  It is a touch point with the consumer that has tremendous influence with your core audience as their choice of licensed products reflects directly on their support of the brand.

So whether you want a review of your licensing departments connection to the core brand values of your company, or someone to run the whole program for you The Page Group can deliver.


Licensing Management / Procurement / Strategy

•  Licensing is not just for revenue… 

•  Licensing extends the brands reach.

•  It can be a TECHNOLOGY or PATENT LICENSE to expand distribution

•  Is a BUILDING BLOCK for a strong brand.


•  Is a Business Model that reflects on who and what the brand is as it relates to their core consumers. 

•  REFLECTS the Brand as well as it Reflects the ATTRIBUTES of the Brand

•  Quality

•  Market positioning

•  Value / Pricing structure

•  Image / Lifestyle attributes / stature

•  Adds tremendous VALUE to a Brands “Blue Sky Value

•  Improves the performance of a companies BOTTOM LINE and STOCK VALUE if managed properly

•  CONNECTS a consumer more closely to the brand 


Licensing Strategy

•  Creates the “LIEFSTYLE ATTRIBUTES” that influence/identify the consumer with those brands that the consumer perceives reflects positively on them.

•  Must be CONSISTENT to the Business Model / Business Plan of the brand and it must have focus

•  It requires a consistency of message to the consumer, consistency of quality, image, value, distribution, merchandising, advertising, messaging, and other corporate attributes. 

•  Requires DILIGENCE to maintain the “INTEGRITY OF THE BRAND”

•  “One bad apple spoils the pie” – i.e.…Ralph Lauren & Izod stories

•  It requires legal and governmental registry to protect ones rights — i.e.…Coca-Cola and Honda story

•  Licensing strategy requires “INTEGRATION” within one’s corporate Business Plan”

•  It must reflect the Corporate Brand, the Corporate Image, the Corporate Quality, the Corporate Target Consumer’s Core Values, the Corporate Target Audiences Passion & Connection with the Brand which is defined by your business plan. 

•  Licensing must be “Authentic” to the brands core. It’s our belief the brands like TRD lost sight of its core and licensed to vendors not setting the same standard as the corporation set out as its original brand strategy, which affected the overall brand.
