While ice-cream trucks are a common sight in the West,  you will find motorcycle vendors a familiar sight in Southeast Asia.  In a recent sighting by our ODM staff, we found a massive branding opportunity idea. This opportunity, which was spotted in Laos included a variety of branded merchandise.  Below are some pictures of Wall’s brand marketing sighted in Luang Prabang.

From the picture above, we can easily spot Wall’s logo on the freezer and bin. Such an eye catching color and design will definitely attract passers by and grab consumers attention. The company utilizes the large surface area by printing it’s logo on the merchandise.  The popping color used for the product is wisely utilized to ensure interaction among consumers.

In addition to the eye catching freezers, we spotted bike riders wearing Fedora hats that are incredibly popular right now! Having a customized Fedora hat with the company logo is an immense brand marketing opportunity! We would recommend Wall’s to give out the Fedora hats as uniform to their vendors.  This will significantly increase brand visibility and establish presence when outdoors.

What do you need to know about branding?

Brands are valuable, as they can outlive products. A brand holds a certain promise to consumers in delivering consistency such as quality, experience and credibility. Branding is fundamental and essential for a company in creating value for a lifetime. It is important to set your brand apart from competitors. Think about brands you purchase from, such as Coca-cola and McDonald’s. Is their physical assets much more valuable than their brand? Absolutely not.  Strong branding strategy will create everlasting value which outlives physical values.

Why is visual merchandise so important for your brand?

Visual merchandising strategy plays a prominent role in brand marketing and advertising. Examples of visual merchandising are store appearances, signage, uniforms and point of sale displays. Having branded merchandise either on a display or uniform can help create images of products in the customer’s mind. Images such as the company color, logo, packaging and display of a product that will evoke certain emotions. Using Wall’s ice-cream as an example, the visuals of Wall’s logo and color acts as a stimulus in enticing customers. Thus resulting in customers walking to your doorstep and making impulse purchases.
