Brand Standing Champions

Last year Nike proved the epitome of Brand 'Standing for Something and Sacrifice Everything' with its Kaepernick 'Dream Crazy' 'JustDoIt' campaign. Meanwhile, Google scored a massive own goal by not turning up for the hearing with senator's alongside Facebook & Twitter. Such arrogance because it holds 93% market share.

Here are few examples of international brands and what they stand for:

• Coca Cola: sell happiness

• FedEx: live up to our promise

• McDonalds - Loving it

• Microsoft: productivity, personalised

• Nike: Can do attitude...Just do it! (pic right)

• Nordstrom: focus on the customer needs

Starbucks: personalised drinks, entertaining refreshment experience (Howard Schultz, founder, pic right)

• Ford: consistency

• Volvo: safe

• Ferrari: fast

• AT&T - mobilizing your world
