Increase Value to Investors & Expand in Crowded Space
Kardel Global Equine was quietly sourcing European horses for Americans - a space with many professionals as well as do-it-yourselfers. The principal needed to gain visibility, build authority, and showcase expertise to reflect its expanding influence in the industry.
Before any creative execution, it was crucial to assess and redefine Kardel Global Equine's market position in order to differentiate it from the competition, extend its audience reach, and attract new clients. EQ focused on creating a strong Brand Strategy, Positioning, and Message Platform - beginning with customer, peer, and target interviews.
A highly differentiated advantage was revealed through the research - unlike the typical horse buying experience, Kardel is transparent thru its end-to-end managed process. This provides customers with confidence and convenience in their investment. The sum of the strategy is named #KardelSourced and can be found at www.KardelSourced.com
