Increase in Competition Calls for More Effective Brand Management

May 23, 2014

Last year’s growing M&A activity helped increase confidence and paved way to what is currently a seller’s market. An increase in demand and shortage in supply (on the sell side) means that companies can pick and choose with whom they do business. What does this mean for intermediaries in M&A? In a seller’s market, prices escalate which means businesses look for value added to the transaction process.

The competition amongst M&A’s players is naturally increasing with rising activity. These players need to be able to not only differentiate themselves, but also make themselves visible. Creating visibility is not simply about creating a basic website with contact information. With millions of users online and equally as many businesses looking to promote themselves on the internet, complex algorithms and filters are used to weed out those who are not updated with strategic keywords and content. Many businesses are getting lost amongst thousands and thousands of search results, never once making it to their audience.

M&A intermediaries are continuously losing business to companies that employ effective brand management strategies. These companies use tactical content, effective marketing campaigns, and deliver it all to the right audience. Brand management is a time consuming but necessary tool for all businesses. Large firms with the required capital internalize the process while smaller companies are continuously losing clients to them due to their lack of knowledge and resources.
