Dove Direct Print & Marketing Blog - Brand Recognition Matters

Welcome to the Dove Direct Print and Marketing Blog. Today’s post, “Brand Recognition Matters” discusses brand value perception and why outside brand recognition awards, PR and notable mentions play an important role in elevating brand equity.

Brand value perception, some media pundits argue, is solely in the hands of consumer conversations generated by word of mouth and social media, including both superior customer experiences and great marketing campaigns. Brand equity’s rise is also dependent on the additional “winning” perception generated by outside notable PR, and awards depicting best in class, for industry, category, or region.  The Dove Direct brand has amassed yet another recognition award in 2016!

Brand Recognition Conversations

Brand recognition conversations are typically generated by the history of brands' performances among their target market segments. In 2016, we’ve seen Apple win the brand equity battle among the Millennials as their most preferred brand, Donald Trump winning support of some segments of the GOP voter block, while Hillary Clinton is winning some segments of the voter population that are new to Democratic Presidential candidates, GM, Mercedes, and the list goes on.

There is an old adage that states, “all advertising is good advertising, just spell my name right.”  To a degree, some marketers agree that if it is a negative advertising perspective, that’s good too. That said, we contend that negative perceptions can present a value equity challenge for the brand, that in some cases takes years to reverse, and as a result, for others can completely destroy the brand. Therefore, any positive noteworthy mention of a brand is a good thing.

Dove Direct (aka Dove Mailing) Receives 2016 Best of Atlanta Awards

At the end of the day, marketing 101 teaches us that from time to time, we need to shout our accomplishments from the rooftops for all that will listen. That brings us to Dove Direct’s 2016 Best of Atlanta award. The following Press release was provided by the Atlanta Award Program.

Atlanta Award Program Honors the Achievement

ATLANTA August 25, 2016 -- Dove Mailing has been selected for the 2016 Best of Atlanta Award in the Mailing Services category by the Atlanta Award Program.


Each year, the Atlanta Award Program identifies companies that we believe have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category. These are local companies that enhance the positive image of small business through service to their customers and our community. These exceptional companies help make the Atlanta area a great place to live, work and play.

Various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to choose the winners in each category. The 2016 Atlanta Award Program focuses on quality, not quantity. Winners are determined based on the information gathered both internally by the Atlanta Award Program and data provided by third parties.

Recognition is given to those companies that have shown the ability to use their best practices and implemented programs to generate competitive advantages and long-term value.
