Brand-building is a long and difficult challenge for many start-up entrepreneurs. In order to have sustainable development and stay competitiveness in market, and even making the brand stand out from the crowd, brand positioning, marketing strategy, promotion, brand awareness are the essential components for successful brand development.

Ten years ago, I started to build my own brand “B.Duck”. There were lots of difficulties from production, quality control, sales channels, intellectual property management; I have also gone through a lot of “costly mistakes” when entering into mainland China market, due to lack of experience.

B.Duck has now expanded from overseas export to global sales network, licensing, e-commerce, franchising, retailing, and catering. We aim to support and make productive contribution to the industry by sharing our experience to other entrepreneurs.

When I was a first-time entrepreneur, Japanese cosmetics and skin care products were chosen to be the start-up business. I would like to share my experience of IPSA, the most impressive corporate among all brands I have worked with before. In general, toners can be divided into various categories, including dry or sensitive skin type, neutral skin type and oily skin type. Despite these 3 common categories, IPSA has designed more than 10 types of toners to situate all customer needs. I am deeply impressed by the meticulousness and thoughtfulness of this brand after careful understanding, thereby trust and respect are gained from the public.

Inspired by IPSA, I have integrated this key attitude in MEMO Plus Production. Although our partners and clients may not notice the details and thoughtfulness in our project plans and executions, it leads to more opportunities and advantages which are out of our expectations, including:

1. PR professionals need to be attentive and detail-minded in promotional strategies so that the characters of the particular product or service can be shown

2. The wants and needs of target audience can be more accurately addressed by analysing every details

3. Decent packaging is the start of great success
