The UNSQUASHABLE Brand: In the international market it is the values of the brand which have become crucial to its success or failure.
The time has passed when technical advantages alone can sell a product. It is the attitudes to a brand and the emotional and non-material values associated with it, that create sales. The battle among brands is for positions of strength in the eyes of the consumer. This is the field on which companies fight it out. Consumers don’t simply buy products, they buy attitudes.
UNSQUASHABLE is a true international brand with a distinguished heritage; our consumers are genuinely global, becoming more homogenous and unified by common interests, trends and technologies. So the more global harmony there is between the market’s view of the company and the company’s view of itself, the stronger the UNSQUASHABLE personality.
Only an organisation which wants the same things and moves in the same direction will be able to differentiate its Brand.
UNSQUASHABLE need to be consistent in:
The way we see ourselves
The way we would like to be seen
The way we are seen by others
A consistent Brand contains security and credibility for the consumer and supplies a “reason why” for the workforce
Before we look at the Brand going forward, it is important to see where we have come from and what have been the Brand’s defining moments.
UNSQUASHABLE has been the most successful squash specialist brand and rose to prominence through Jahangir Khan who used UNSQUASHABLE throughout his record breaking career.
