Brand Consultants Provide Strategic Direction
When an entrepreneur or business owner wants to build a brand, they’ll engage a professional.
That might be a brand designer, a strategist or an agency, and that person or that group of people will put together a brand and hand it over to the manager.
This brand manager might be the business owner or they might have a brand manager in-house.
The size and the type of business will determine how engaged that brand manager role is. The manager might be full-time, part-time or the business owner might play the brand manager role and manage the brand when they have time.
But when the business and the brand needs some strategic guidance, that is when they need brand consultancy. And for that, they’ll engage… (you guessed!), the brand consultant.
