The Superbrands Organisation

A Mark Of Excellence From its conception in 1993 and UK launch in 1994, Superbrands has grown into a global organisation and today operates in more that 92 countries around the world and across five continents – which makes “Superbrands” a truly global brand. Superbrands History Superbrands began life in 1994 as a radio show on GLR (now BBC London 94.9). This broadcast aimed to give ordinary consumers an insight into the significant brands that touched upon their lives. After the success of the show the Superbrands organisation was founded in 1995. Its mandate focused on promoting the discipline of branding and identifying and paying tribute to exceptional brands. At the time it was not imagined that within only a few years the organisation could have achieved such phenomenal success – or be the global authority that it is today. The first Superbrands reference book published in the UK contained brands ranging from international icons such as American Express and Coca-Cola to UK favourites like British Airways and Cadbury. The trend of mixing international and local brands highly rated by the relevant national selection process continues today. Sixteen percent of the brands from that first publication qualified and were featured in the tenth anniversary edition of Superbrands UK, published in 2005. Thirty-eight percent of those brands continue to be members internationally. Two further UK editions, each increasing in size and stature, were completed in 1996 and 1997. This paved the way for the first international Superbrands programme to be launched in Australia. Its publisher was Stephen P. Smith who created the Superbrands concept and founded the international organisation. In 2000, a sustained period of international growth ensued with Denmark, France, Hong Kong, Spain, Sweden and the USA beginning programmes. More recently, Argentina, Canada, Germany, Japan and South Africa have joined the international network. Exceptional growth has occurred in Asia, Europe and the Middle East. Today, Superbrands is the world’s leading brand recognition platform and is established in more than 92 countries around the world. Internat ional operat ions are run on a l icense basis whereby local rights are awarded to experienced and highly qualified individuals. Each operational head forms part of the international editorial board acting as gate keepers to the Superbrands accolade and responsible for the integrity of the programme. Superbrands presents expert and consumer opinion on branding. The organisation promotes the discipline of branding and recognises the exceptional and most valued brands. THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT SUPERBRANDS Superbrands started life as a radio talk show broadcast on Greater London Radio (now BBC Radio London) in the UK. Superbrands launched in 1994 and the first book was published in London in 1995. Today, Superbrands operates in more than 92 countries worldwide, across five continents. Superbrands has published more than 35,000 brand case histories for over 4,500 of the worlds biggest and most valuable brands. Brands participating in more than 20 editions of Superbrands include international icons such as American Express, Avis, Coca-Cola, DHL, Gillette, McDonalds, Nokia, Philips and Sony. Coca-Cola has participated in over 50 Superbrands programmes around the world. The iconic Superbrands logo is widely recognised by consumers as a mark of brand excellence and distinction. On average, 70% of Asian consumers say that they are more likely to consider buying a brand they see associated with the Superbrands logo. Asian consumers also say that they consider brands displaying the Superbrands logo to be more trustworthy and of higher quality than other brands. • • • • • • • • •

The brand conversation grows larger and more complicated with every passing day in our modern, ever-connected world. It’s not just branding anymore. It’s corporate branding, product branding, service branding, and even personal branding. Whether you’re a business leader, a marketing professional, or just a regular chap buying a cup of coffee before a long day in the actual salt mines, branding is woven throughout every aspect of our lives. Whether you’re aware of them or not, every company and every product already has a brand. 8LI [SVO SJ YRHIVWXERHMRK HI½RMRK ERH WLETMRK XLIWI FVERHW LS[IZIV MW ER SRKSMRK TVSGIWW The organisations that invest in building strong brands are investing in a powerful competitive advantage.

But brand can work just as hard for small and mid-sized enterprises and business-to-business organisations as it does for these corporates giants.

10 The Superbrands Recipe How to become a Superbrand according to members of the Superbrands Council A Superbrand never knows the word 'best,' it only knows the word 'better.' A Superbrand believes nothing is the best and it needs improvement from time to time while retaining its core personality. Every single complaint and compliment from customers counts for a Superbrand as they are the key to success and their perception toward the brand de nes what the brand really is. What's the most impor tant for a Superbrand is to gain positive perception that exceeds the por trayed brand personality. The signi cant challenge for a Superbrand is to maintain its top-of-mind position in this fast-moving market. Thus, a Superbrand does not compete but it offers differentiation or something that never exists in the market before to always stay in the frontline. Mr. Charn Srivikorn Chairman Gaysorn Land Asset Management Co., Ltd. We utilise the Seikatsusha insights to balance a good mix of traditional marketing tactics and new-world approaches to make sure we resonate with the right target audience with the right touch-points to create the right and desired effects. A Superbrand should stand out as the category leader, to be recognised and acknowledged as superior in the lives of consumers. Being a Superbrand to us means being able to solve, evolve with and revolve around the consumer’s life needs through the application of the best of both communication-approach worlds, using consumer insights as the fundamental ground. As a Superbrand trying to manhandle this ever-changing consumer universe, always remember the mantra – Consumer, Adapt, Consumer. A Superbrand is the sum of its consumers, it is chosen, stays relevant, and endures through time and consumer generations. Ms. Jirapat Kanchanosot Chief Operating Of cer Spa-Hakuhodo Chief of Staff & Organization Development Hakuhodo International Thailand With the growth of digitalisation and online media platforms coupling with the new now-normal lifestyle as the catalyst, the new-world consumer phenomenon has grown extremely challenging for marketers and adver tisers. Brands and communicators must equip, embrace and weaponise themselves with the knowledge of ever-changing consumer landscape to stay innovated and inclusive. First and foremost, for Hakuhodo it’s the word ‘Consumers’. The ‘Consumers’ is the hear t of any brands, they are the reason that brands exist, survive and thrive, if the insights are answered that is. Despite the progressive consumer and communication landscapes, one thing is always de nite, our ‘Consumers’. With the Hakuhodo cornerstone philosophy, Seikatsusha 生活者, knowing and understanding your consumer holistic insights are mandatory, it’s a steppingstone to delivering the right branding and communication pathway and seamlessly blending into the lives of consumers.

Throughout the current pandemic, brands have faced greater challenges in order to survive and be successful in these dark days.The pandemic has seen customers' buying habits change, customers are now making more purchases online which means that many purchases are for goods or services that the customer has no prior knowledge of and that makes branding even more impor tant to allow customers to buy with con dence. Seeing the Superbrands Award Seal on a product means decision making is easier for customers as they can be cer tain that any product or service bearing that seal is one that they can trust and is good quality. Superbrands is a global arbiter of excellence in branding and is present in over 92 markets across the world making it the most trusted name in branding. Ms. Champagne Thiankhwae Country Director Superbrands Thailand Mr.Tharaputh Charuvatana President of Media Agency Association of Thailand and CEO of IPG Mediabrands Superbrands create super unique consumer experiences, by setting impressive stories that build long lasting beautiful memories. Relationships between Superbrands and their consumers, create mutual understanding and bonding, in which turning their consumers into Superbrands Fan.These special bonding requires passion over what Superbrands have been doing creatively, by believing in making differences for their beloved fans, and truly making a difference into our lives & our beloved country. Ms. Maureen Tan CEO Wunderman Thompson Bangkok Superbrands need to be timeless, consistent, inclusive and importantly innovative. Today, brands not only need to stay relevant but also constantly be innovative and as a super brand, successful ones set the category agenda and standards for all. It also needs to have clear values that evolve out of its products, services and across to its consumers - done consistently over time. However, and whenever, a consumer looks at you, interacts with you and experiences you - they need to be delighted through your every transaction. As famously quoted by Maya Angelou “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” There is no holy grail beyond putting the customer at the heart of whatever any Superbrand does – again and again. Ms. JiravaraVirayavardhana Managing Director Ogilvy Thailand To overcome the furious tides of change, a Superbrand must consider doing business in a much more sustainable way. A Superbrand for the future is a brand committed to create impact not just for their own performance but for the people and the planet as well. Apar t from brand and business gains, what we do must contribute to the greater good for our employees and consumers, our community and society, and the world we live in. As clients’ trusted par tner for growth, Ogilvy was tasked with the elusive mission of seizing and creating new oppor tunities despite the decline in the marketplace.Thanks to our sustainable business approach, what we delivered for our clients was much more than growth numbers, but broader forms of lasting impact. The pandemic has been an extremely challenging time.With a bit of innovating and strategy-tweaking, can help many brands get back on track and even come out at higher levels than ever before.The Superbrands though do this and more. Superbrands do and always will understand what customers want and need, adapt through both good times and bad, and build trust by committing to the customers’ expectations, consistently creating meaningful customer experiences.This is rooted in a strong foundation of standing behind great values, not just a great product, and convey this with authenticity, and putting a premium on truth. The uncer tainties are yet to be over. Brands that demonstrate empathy in both their words and their actions, forging a special connection in consumers’ hear ts will be the differentiator to being crowned Superbrands. Congratulations to all that are involved in making them, and you deserve the bragging rights and the spotlights. We salute you. Ms. Pathamawan Sathaporn CEO GroupM Mr. Danai Chanchaochai Chief Advisor DC Consultants and Marketing Communication Ltd. A marketing guru once said: The world is driven by emotions.Therefore, consumers the world over are driven by love, passion, and faith powered by the Superbrands. However, the single most impor tant success factor of becoming a Superbrand is through the speed of trust and the sustainability of that trust. Without trust, nothing can happen. All Superbrands have elevated far beyond the stage of Brand Love to the higher level of Brand Faith. Therefore it is pivotal for all Superbrands to protect this emotional bonding at all costs.When trust is broken, through consumer’s moment of truth which differs from brand promise and expectation, it is most dif cult to regain. Trust is the very soul of a Superbrand. And above all, Superbrand does not only excel in its business category, but will always strive to inspire others and make the whole world a better place to live. That is the true beauty and the power of a Superbrand!

HISTORY Founder Maurice Blackmore was an English immigrant whose ideas about health were way ahead of his time. His belief in the health-giving properties of herbs and minerals led him to develop a whole system of healthcare based on naturopathic principles. His views on natural health, preventive medicine, the environment and recycling were nothing short of radical in the 1930s, and his work opened the doors to new ways of treating illness and maximising health. Maurice Blackmore was responsible for starting Australia’s first health food store in Brisbane in 1938 and he worked with colleagues and friends to establish the country’s first naturopathic colleges and associations. His beliefs are still valid today and his teachings are incorporated into the training programs of many natural health practitioners. Marcus Blackmore, Maurice’s son, followed closely in his father’s footsteps studying naturopathy and dedicating himself to the business.
