Brand Strategy

Raddon offers a Brand Evaluation engagement that begins with an in-depth, customized brand survey which measures consumer awareness of your institution and provides critical information, measuring the effectiveness of media exposure and advertising messages. We analyze survey results in conjunction with your current marketing efforts and develop brand proof points. Each engagement provides in-depth customized recommendations on how to capitalize on your brand strengths and improve weaknesses.

The engagement will ensure the mission statement drives your financial institution’s culture and is reflected in every facet of the organization.
